5/10/2018 - Local Government Section Information Session

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Location: York Street Cafe - Newport, KY

The Local Government Section will meet 12:00 at York Street Café located at 738 York Street, Newport, Kentucky. Frank Warnock, section chair, will educate the section on the following

1.      New law. Speaking of bad jokes, the state legislature passed numerous bills that impact local governments. Some of them are very beneficial to our local governments. I will share a few of those bills. As an aside, I read a synopsis of the bills passed and was somewhat taken aback about the legislature’s mandates to school systems. Schools will be required to instruction about the Holocaust, provide suicide prevention training, provide financial literacy courses and require an Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test. Interesting. I’ve picked out a few legislative items to share and discuss.

2.      Police officers. KRS 16.040. Officers hired with a high school diploma or GED degree will now be required to obtain a minimum of 60 hours of credit or an associate degree from college prior to the end of the officer’s probation.

3.      Unfunded mandates. Now this one will be interesting. KRS Chapter 6 is created to require that the General Assembly shall not impose requirements on cities that require city expenditures or tax levies. Maybe it’s me, sounds like a good idea, but I wonder if it’s actually going to be enforced. Hope springs eternal.

4.      Quota retail package licenses. KRS 241.065. The legislature codified the number of quota retail package licenses.

5.      Annexation standing. KRS 81A. When a city annexes property in which no person is residing, then owners within the area or owers of property directly adjoining the property to be annexed shall have standing. There is a two-year statute of limitations imposed in the statute.

6.      Body-worn cameras. KRS 61. Numerous exceptions to open records requests have been established for police officer body-worn cameras.

7.      Animals right to sue. This goes with the theme of today. An Oregon case involves a horse named Justice as a plaintiff. The horse was abused and is suing its abuser. No, this is not a joke. It’s real. I’ll share an article about whether an abused animal has standing to sue. Justice is not horsing around!
