Boyle needs ethics commission members
Junction City and Boyle Fiscal Court officials will be appointing a total of three ethics commission members in the near future, McKinney reported during Thursday’s meeting.
The existing members are Doug Davis and Preston Miles, both of Perryville. Both men hope to be reappointed to serve another four-year term, which would start in July.
“I would like to reconstitute us (as a commission),” McKinney said. “I would like us to get together occasionally.”
While the judge hopes to receive three recommendations for appointments as soon as possible, it is sometimes difficult to find people willing to serve on county committees, he said after the meeting.
The commssion has not received any formal complaints alleging violations of the county’s ethics ordinance over the last four years, according to the judge. Thus, the commission has met intermittently. McKinney now plans to call the commission together at least three times annually even if there are no complaints to review.
Earlier this month, Junction City Council voted to refer to the ethics commission Councilman Dewayne Taylor’s allegation that he was not notified of a special-called meeting held in December. That issue was not discussed during Thursday’s brief meeting.
