County Mayor Addresses Rotary Club


By Bob Augustin Jr.




      County Mayor Paul Rosson was the guest speaker at the February 29 meeting of the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club.  Rosson presented a slide program entitled "Progress in Lawrence County",  sort of a "State of the County" report.

      Rosson reported on the progress of the two main construction projects in the county, the renovation of the County Administration Center, the former First Volunteer Bank building on West Gaines, and the new jail annex to the County Courthouse.  In addition, he showed photographs of the completed temporary jail/workhouse facility located at the County Waste Management Center.  

      In conjunction with the completion of the temporary jail/workhouse, Rosson informed the club of the County's new Inmate Worker Program.  Inmates at the jail/workhouse are being used as a source of labor for the County: doing clean up at County Administration Center and the railroad trestle over Shoal Creek on the south side of Lawrenceburg,  mowing County properties, sorting recyclables at the Waste Management Center, and picking up litter throughout the county as part of the "Clean up Lawrence Campaign." 

     Providing a better education for our children has been a prime focus of his Administration, Rosson told the club.  Since taking office, the County Commission had increased the School Board's portion of the county property tax, thereby increasing its budget by $900,000 annually.  In addition, Rosson informed the club of the deplorable state of the portable classrooms being used at the county schools, particularly South Lawrence School, and assured the club that he would work diligently to remedy the situation.

     Rosson then updated the club on other projects currently in the works.   Providing water and utilities to the North Lawrence Industrial site, the old Murray test base, is a primary goal said Rosson.  He reported that the county had applied for Federal grants of $750, 000 to complete the project.  In total, the county has applied for over $1 million in grants in the last year.
