PRESS RELEASE
Date: June 18, 2024
TO: Meade County Water District Customers
RE: We need your help to conserve water
Due to increased demand as a result of hot, dry weather, Meade County Water District (MCWD)
is struggling to keep enough water in the distribution system to keep up with our customer’s
needs. MCWD has identified and is working to complete multiple projects to get more water
into the system and improve the resiliency. These projects will take several months to
complete so we are asking our customers to help us by limiting your water usage for watering
lawns, landscapes and gardens. We understand that asking you to conserve water can be an
inconvenience and we appreciate your help.
At this point, we don’t know how long we’ll ask you to limit outdoor water usage; the weather
plays a large role in what’s happening. We’ll keep you updated on the conservation measures
and the projects to improve the amount of water we can move through our system. Please
follow us on our Facebook page for updates.
Each project is in various stages of design and will take several months to get completed. We
hope to put the first project, which is a new upsized transmission main water line from the
Flaherty water tank to the Garrett water tank, by the end of July 2024.
We are asking our customers to conserve water by not using water for yards, landscapes and
gardens.
We realize this is an inconvenience and we are working diligently to make the much-needed
system improvements.
Thank you for your understanding during these trying times.
Brett Pyles
General Manager

PUBLIC NOTICE – KENTUCKY TRANSPORTATION CABINET – RESTRICTED RIGHT OF WAY

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet – District 4, Elizabethtown: Yard Sale, Political and Other Promotional Signs are Restricted on Right of Way – Illegally Placed Items are Being Removed

Mowing cycles are under way and illegally placed items along state maintained right of way areas are being removed. Residents, business operators and property owners along US and KY routes are reminded no signage is allowed on right of way other than official highway signs and items approved through a permit process. Particularly, with yard sales and property sales commonly taking place in spring along with the May Primary, related signs must be placed beyond right of way limits. Crews will not mow around illegally placed items. They will be removed. Items placed on right of way areas create significant delays for mowing crews and are potential hazards for mowing operators and passing motorists. They can create additional hazards by blocking sight distance or distracting drivers, particularly at intersections. All sale activities including parking should be off right of way limits.

It is also illegal to attach items such as flyers, posters, balloons or streamers to stop signs, highway markers or any other road sign or utility pole. Illegal placement on utility poles presents additional obstacles and potential dangers for utility crew workers.

Removed items will be taken to each county’s KYTC maintenance facility and held for a short period of time. Unclaimed materials will be trashed or recycled. If you have questions related to legal/illegal sign placement, please get in touch with KYTC District 4 in Elizabethtown at (270-766-5066).

KYTC District 4 serves Breckinridge, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties. With nearly 3,000 miles of roadway to maintain, we greatly appreciate cooperation within each community regarding illegally placed items along right of way areas.

PUBLIC NOTICE – INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY – ONLINE SCAMS

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community

Online Scams You Need To Know:
1 – PHISHING
Phishing scams are based on communication made via email or on social networks. Cyber criminals trick you into clicking malicious links and access a website that looks legit, but it’s actually controlled by them. You might end up giving your login credentials and other personal information.
2 – ROMANCE SCAMS
A romance scam usually takes place on social dating networks. Social networking sites are inevitable apps to look for love as well but you need to be careful because you never know who can you meet.
3 – TRAVEL SCAMS
You receive an email containing an amazing offer for an exceptional and hard to refuse destination that expires in a short period of time. The problem is that some of these offers actually hide some necessary costs until you pay for the initial offer. Others just take your money without sending you anywhere.
4 – FAKE NEWS SCAMS
Misleading resources and content found online is a serious problem that should concern our society. It makes impossible for people to distinguish between what’s real and what is not.
5 – TECH SUPPORT ONLINE SCAMS
These tech “experts” pretend to know everything about your computer, how it got hacked and many other details that help them gain your trust and convince victims into giving their sensitive information. Even worst, they try to convince potential victims to pay for unnecessary technical support services.
6 – SMS SCAMS
Smartphones are essential for communication, online shopping, banking or any other online activities. Be careful about these SMS you receive and don’t click on suspicious links that could redirect to malicious sites trying to steal your valuable data.
7 – MAKE MONEY FAST SCAMS
Cybercriminals lure you into believing you can make money in a fast and easy way on the internet. The fraudulent posting of non-existent jobs for a variety of positions is part of the online criminals’ arsenal. This is quite effective approach especially when someone is in a difficult financial situation.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEADE COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE – IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING APRIL RENEWALS

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Updates

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Transportation Officials Remind Kentucky Vehicle Owners About Registration
Options Given Delayed March Renewal Notices
Mailed notices expected to arrive mid-April

FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 10, 2024) – Registration renewals typically sent in March to applicable
Kentucky vehicle owners have been delayed to mid-April due to a state system issue. Vehicle owners
have options to pay registration fees and taxes before receiving the mailed notice, including online
renewal or visiting their local county clerk’s office.

Kentuckians with vehicle registrations expiring in April 2024 can visit drive.ky.gov to renew online by
entering the title number found on a previous year’s registration document and their license plate
number. Online renewals are not available if previous balances are owed or if insurance information is
not on file.

Kentuckians always have the option to pay in person or check balances at their county clerk’s office.
Those visiting offices ahead of receiving the April notice are asked to bring their ID, proof of insurance
and last year’s registration document for the same vehicle.
Administered by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), the vehicle registration and titling
portion of the Kentucky Automated Vehicle Information System (KAVIS) that launched in January is
used primarily by county clerk staff to perform vehicle and vessel-related transactions and to generate
user data used to mail notices. KAVIS generates the data used to prepare and send the renewal
notification postcards.

“The new KAVIS system is getting stronger every day, and we’re committed to working through the
challenges that any modernization project presents,” said KYTC Secretary Jim Gray. “We appreciate
the public’s patience and want folks to know they can take care of their vehicle registration needs
without having to wait for the notice to arrive.”
State transportation officials have resolved the majority of issues identified after making the new
system available statewide. Processing times at county clerk’s offices have and will continue to
improve throughout the year.

The KAVIS team continues to improve KAVIS performance and provide technical assistance to clerk
staff adjusting to a new payment system and process.

“Despite the growing pains of replacing a 1970s outdated mainframe system, KAVIS was needed to
introduce capabilities that are standard in most 21st century businesses, like improved reporting,
intuitive interfaces and user guardrails,” said Department of Vehicle Regulations Commissioner Matt
Cole. “Because of the many combinations of unique transactions the system performs, we may
continue to identify and resolve new issues throughout the first year as we cycle through new renewal
transaction types, like boat renewals due in April.”

Time-Saving Tips for Kentuckians When Renewing Vehicle Registrations:

  • Renew your vehicle registration online at drive.ky.gov.
  • Bring your ID, proof of insurance and renewal postcard.
  • Pay electric and hybrid vehicle ownership fees online at EVHV.ky.gov. If paying in person at a
    county clerk’s office, you must pay when renewing your car registration and will need to bring your
    fee notification postcard.

    KAVIS Implementation
  • The project to migrate to KAVIS kicked off in 2015, and six modules were gradually released, including boat titling and registration, a standardized point-of-sale system, disabled placard improvements, print on-demand decals and new flat license plates. In January, the commonwealth fully launched KAVIS to now handle motor vehicle title and registration services. A short-term closure of county clerk offices started Jan. 1, 2024, and counties gradually began using the new system starting the week of Jan. 8.
  • As a mainframe legacy system, AVIS was difficult to support and lacked needed functionalities.
    Kentuckians, under KAVIS, can now keep their license plate if they sell or trade a car, and have more
    special license plate options to support their favorite organizations.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEMORIAL – APRIL 3, 2024 AT 4PM EDT

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Community, Special Events, Updates

Please join us today as we remember the lives lost and those changed forever by the tornado that hit Brandenburg 50 years ago. The ceremony will be streamed live on WVIH.com and broadcast on WMMG for those who are not able to attend in person.

Communities in Meade and Breckinridge County will pause to remember and honor those lost fifty years ago today on April 3, 1974.

The storms hit with little or no advance warning in the mid afternoon hours. One storm developed in western Kentucky and dropped the 47th of 148 tornadoes of the outbreak near McQuady and continued on the ground some thirty miles to where as a F5 storm it leveled the main business and residential areas of Brandenburg just after 4 pm.

The same storm produced another long track tornado in Louisville that continued through Oldham and Trimble Counties to near Madison, Indiana.

PUBLIC NOTICE – KENTUCKY COUNTY CLERKS ASSOCIATION UPDATE ON KAVIS SYSTEM

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Updates

For Immediate Release
March 8, 2024
Kentucky County Clerks Association Update on KAVIS System
Frankfort, KY — March 8, 2024 — The Kentucky County Clerks Association has important information for the public as we continue to work our way through the implementation of the state’s new vehicle registration system known as KAVIS. County Clerks are processing an increasing number of transactions each day, however, there are still significant delays and problematic transactions.
KCCA leadership has expressed our concerns and frustrations with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) on behalf of our customers and our motor vehicle staff. KYTC shared that the KAVIS team is working seven days a week to correct the programming errors that continue to plague the KAVIS system. In addition, too often, inconsistent information is being shared with County Clerks by KYTC’s Motor Vehicle Licensing Division (MVL) about transactions, potential workarounds, and even MVL’s level of assistance with problematic transactions. This only slows down service for our customers.
“Kentucky County Clerks continue to call on KYTC officials to resolve the issues within MVL and restore dependable support to the County Clerks and our customers. While many KAVIS bugs have been corrected, County Clerks are still struggling with the remaining bugs, which too often results in customers being forced to make multiple trips to try to complete transactions or lengthy wait times. The goal of County Clerks across the Commonwealth is to serve our customers. We appreciate our many customers who have shown us grace and patience when conducting business in their County Clerk’s Office, and we will continue to provide meaningful feedback to KYTC in hopes of improving our customers’ experiences. We all agree that once the software is fully operational, it will be a wonderful system, however, the status quo of long lines and too many customers forced to make multiple trips is not acceptable,” stated Tabatha Clemons, Grant County Clerk, Kentucky County Clerks Association President.
KCCA continues to request our customers to be as prepared as possible when they visit their County Clerk. The following steps will make your visit more efficient:
• Bring your driver’s license or state issued identification card.
• Bring your renewal notice and previous year’s registration.
• Bring your Kentucky proof of insurance printed or refer to your County Clerk if there is an insurance email address or fax number available for your county.
• Be prepared to wait longer than normal. It takes time to work through each customer’s account and merge vehicles for each customer.
• Check your County Clerk’s Holiday Hours for March 29 and March 30.
• For any transaction by mail, online or drop-off please include a contact phone number so we can reach you.
• KYTC’s web portal drive.ky.gov is available for renewals with verified proof of insurance and the customer is current with all taxes owed.
March is the busiest month of the year in the County Clerks’ motor vehicle departments. Currently, 963,462 renewal notices were mailed all with a March 2024 expiration date, compared to 310,019 in January and 296,490 in February. March renewals include all farm tags, campers, trailers, March birthdate renewals, fleets, heavyweight plates, and the start of boat renewal season.

PUBLIC NOTICE – ELIZABETHTOWN KENTUCKY DRIVER LICENSING OFFICE – NEW LOCATION

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Elizabethtown Driver Licensing Regional Office will operate in a new permanent location where Kentuckians will benefit from increased parking and a larger reception area. The new location will be open to the public on Monday, Feb. 5.

The temporary office at 1055 North Mulberry served approximately 5,000 Kentuckians each month. The new location at 916 North Mulberry will offer a more efficient workspace and an improved experience for guests.

“We are thrilled to have a permanent location for our Elizabethtown office,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Secretary Jim Gray. “We are committed to exploring ways to take our services to the next level, and this new office will do just that.”

Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time. Appointments at any regional office are available at https://www.drive.ky.gov, and walk-in customers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Driver testing in Hardin County is conducted by the Kentucky State Police (KSP). The KSP driver testing services in Hardin County will also be located at the new location but will have a separate entrance to streamline processing for both facilities. Applicants requiring written or skills testing must schedule an appointment online at assigned locations by visiting
https://kentuckystatepolice.gov/driver-testing/

“With increased parking and a larger waiting area, we’re not just moving; we’re evolving,” Department of Vehicle Regulations Commissioner Matt Cole said. “This enhanced environment is all about making our services more accessible and ensuring that every visitor feels comfortable throughout the issuance process.”

Kentuckians now have convenient options such as online scheduling for office appointments, and online or mail-in license renewal that were not available under Kentucky’s previous system of license issuance at local circuit court clerk offices. Kentuckians can choose between a standard-issue or REAL ID-compliant credential and a card valid for four years or eight years.

First-time REAL ID applicants must visit a KYTC regional office in person, with proof of identity, residence and social security. For a personalized list of required documents to bring when applying, visit https://realidky.com. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has set May 7, 2025, as the date by which a REAL ID or other forms of verified identification will be required for boarding a commercial airliner, entering a U.S. military base or entering a federal building where ID is currently required.

PUBLIC NOTICE – PHYSICAL INSPECTIONS – MEADE COUNTY PROPERTY VALUATION ADMINSTRATION

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

Meade County Property Valuation Administration: Kentucky state law requires each PVA office to physically inspect every property in the county at least once every four years. To meet this requirement a quadrennial plan is created dividing the county into quadrants. Our field representatives will visit the property driving a vehicle that is clearly marked as a PVA vehicle. If no changes to the property have been made since the last physical inspection field staff will not exit the vehicle, and will drive on to the next property. If improvements have been made or the condition of the property has changed field staff will identify themselves to the homeowner before inspecting the property. Field staff may measure any structures not in our records, and take pictures of any structures where the condition has changed since the last inspection.
This week (2/6/24 – 2/9/24) field staff plan to visit properties located in Map numbers 93 through 97.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEADE COUNTY PLANNING AND ZONING – PROPERTY MAINTENANCE ORDINANCE

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

Meade County has a Property Maintenance Ordinance, and a P&Z Field Representative whose responsibility is to investigate and resolve violations of the ordinance. Voluntary compliance by the violator with-in a stated amount of time, is the prime goal. The Field Representative can offer advice and possible assistance to accomplish the goal. However, when a violator does not bring the property into compliance, a citation (ticket) will be issued, with an associated fine.
Should the violator disagree with the citation, then they may bring their case before the Meade County Property Maintenance Board of Appeals. The Board may take several actions which include, but are not limited to, authorizing more time to bring the property into compliance, maintain/increase the fine.
Should the violator not agree with the Board’s decision, then they may hire a lawyer and appeal to the District Court.

  1. Code Enforcement always attempts contact with property owners. The Field Rep. generally allows at least 14 days, but in most cases 30 days to bring the property into compliance.
  2. The citation states your options and gives instructions if you disagree with the citation.
  3. Property owners who have received citations: Do Not attempt to contact the code enforcement officer who issued the citation. Follow the instructions on the citation.

PUBLIC NOTICE – EXTENSION OF 2024 JANUARY INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATION PLAN (IRP) REGISTRATIONS

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Special Events, Updates

RE: Extension of 2024 January IRP registrations
As Kentucky will experience an outage to allow for the installation of a new registration system, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Division of Motor Carriers, will provide an extension for any January 2024 IRP renewals until February 28, 2024. The expiration date and time is in effect until 12:01 AM EST, March 1, 2024. Extension as permitted and defined in the IRP Plan (page 17); “Extension means a period of time from the expiration date or end of a grace period during which registrants may operate on expired credentials by reason of inability of the base jurisdiction to provide current credentials”.
Carriers must adhere to all other state and Federal requirements as well as all other safety requirements. A copy of this memo must be carried in the vehicle.
Therefore, we ask that enforcement of each member jurisdictions refrain from acting against Kentucky carriers operating under the IRP registration of January 2024.
We apologize for the interruption in the registration process, but it’s necessary to bring our customers the upgraded system.
For questions or concerns, you can reach out to me at 502-782-7846 or e-mail at mary.morris@ky.gov.

PUBLIC NOTICE – PLATE TO CUSTOMER SYSTEM – EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2024

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Special Events, Updates

Meade County Clerk’s Office

See below for important updates regarding our new vehicle registration system coming in January. Are you planning to sell or trade your car? Now, when you sell or trade your vehicle, you will keep your license plate. Kentucky is changing the way it handles plates. Starting in January the State will operate in the “Plate -to- Customer” format. In this new format, when you sell or trade your vehicle, you keep the license plate with the registration decal that you paid for at the renewal time. This change allows you the option to use the full 12 months of your paid registration.
If you buy another vehicle, the plate you remove from your sold or traded vehicle can be put on the newly purchased vehicle, but only after you transfer the plate to the newly purchased vehicle at your county clerk’s office.
Please remember your plate must be transferred to the new, or used vehicle that you purchase, before you drive with that plate.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEADE COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE NEW AUTO RENEWAL SERVICE

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Community, Government, Updates

The Meade County Clerk’s Office notes that Kentucky will be implementing a vehicle system upgrade beginning on January 1, 2024, through January 8, 2024, with a day-to-day rollout for counties beginning on January 9, 2024. Please keep in mind that the county clerk’s office will not be open to the public for motor vehicle, boat or disabled parking permit renewals, new issuances or vehicle or boat transfers from December 30th – January 11th. During the system downtime we will be in the office answering phones and the Deed room and Land record services will still be available. Meade County’s scheduled rollout is January 10, 2024.

We will use January 10th and 11th to process all mail and dealer work and to familiarize ourselves with the new system. The office will reopen to the public on Friday January 12, 2024.

Reminder that December Renewals need to be done during the month of December and can be done through December 29th. Visit our office during December or renew online at drive.ky.gov. Online renewals will be available through December 27th so that they can be processed by December 29th.
Please know that January renewals cannot be done until January 2024.
2024 car taxes do not get uploaded until January. These 2024 taxes cannot be paid in advance.

The Meade County Courthouse has a scheduled Holiday closing for December 29th and January 1st; however, the Meade County Clerk office has decided to be open on December 29th and closed on January 1st and 2nd for the Holiday. We hope this will benefit those December renewals and vehicle transfers needing to be done before year end.

We apologize for any inconveniences that this is going to cause but know that the transition from a 45-year-old statewide system to a more modern and efficient system will better serve our public in the future. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we reopen the motor vehicle department with the adjustment to the new and improved system as well as the expected overload of renewals for the January backlog. Long lines may be expected in the beginning of this transition.

Thank you, Susan Masterson, Meade County Clerk
