The Leitchfield City Council met on Tuesday evening, approving a resolution, and hearing from an accounting firm representative who recently audited the city’s finances.
Leitchfield Police Chief Kevin Henderson asked the council for its approval to purchase an IDville machine used to create identification cards for children, very similar to an adults’ driver’s license. The ID machine is equipped to put a child’s finger print and other vital information on the back of the card, and can be used to gather information about the child quickly in the event something untoward happens to the youngster.
Considering the Police Department’s budget still has several thousand dollars available for expenditures after Henderson spent only a fraction of what was budgeted for a new video system, approval was granted for Henderson to purchase the IDville machine for just over $2,000.00.
Jeff Carter of the Glasgow accounting firm Taylor, Polson, and Company, PSC, presented the results of a recently completed audit of the city’s finances. Carter reported that his firm found no mistakes in the city’s financial accounting and reported the city to be very healthy, financially.
