A couple of years ago, KC3 contacted the Scott county judge executive's office to tell them that they had illegal signs at the entrance to their parks. Supposedly, they took them down.
Now the signs are back.
This one is at the entrance to a park on highway 25N.
Note the illegal language banning firearms and deadly weapons at rule number 5.
That's a no-no, Judge.
Did they think that our members weren't looking or were going to forget about it?
Did they think that they'd get away with it?
The citizen who sent the photos to us says that Scott county Judge-executive George Lusby was quoted in a newspaper article as saying that he didn't agree with the CCDW law. Apparently he or someone working for him in Scott county thinks that they don't have to comply with laws that don't suit them.
We made a phone call to him today and he assured us that he'd look into it and be sure that someone took care of it. He said gee whiz, gosh all golly, he sure didn't want to go to jail for those signs. Somehow it didn't sound very sincere.
He'd better be sure that he follows up on it, or we'll be looking into what it takes to charge a public official with malfeasance. That's also against the law in Kentucky. And if we were Scott county taxpayers we'd be asking him why he's wasting our tax dollars on illegal signs to suit his personal agenda. We aren't going to forget about it, judge.
If you want to tell him what you think about it, you can find his contact information on their web page here.
And tell him that KC3 sent you.
