Despite being uninsured, the farmer is entitled to some reimbursement according to the Animal Control Act. The money would come out of the Animal Control Fund. 


The Christian County Board took care of many motions in their short meeting. They approved the requests to fill the Sheriff’s deputy position following the retirement of Mick Moliske later this month and to hire an additional correctional officer. The Board also clarified how it was going to accomplish the split of the sharing of a secretary between the Solid Waste Office and the Zoning Office.
