The Clarkson City Commissioners do the first reading of the ordinance pertaining to care, keeping and controlling of all dogs in the City of Clarkson.

The city of Clarkson is looking to hire another police officer.

After entering executive session during their regularly scheduled meeting Monday night, the commissioners voted to accept Dylan Bohn's resignation as a full-time police officer and to hire him as a part-time police officer instead.

According to Mayor Bonnie Henderson, Bohn will be joining the Bowling Green Fire Department.

The Clarkson Police Department's Facebook page states that they will be seeking applicants to fill the position of a full-time sworn police officer and that anyone interested in applying should stop by the Clarkson City Hall during regular business hours and pick up an application, starting Jan. 25.

They will continue to accept applications and resumes until Feb. 1.

In other business:

• Henderson assigned departments to the commissioners. Joyce Bell will be in charge of streets and sidewalks; Bob Vincent will be in charge of the park; Tara Sallee will be in charge of sewer and sanitation; Robbie Richardson will be in charge of the fire department and Mayor Henderson will be in charge of the police department and administration.

• Bob Vincent was named mayor pro-tem.

*The city will remain open on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and garbage routes will remain the same, although the transfer station will be closed, so the truck may get filled up before it can get all of the garbage in the city. What ever is left will be picked up Tuesday.

Employees can take an unpaid day off if they choose to do so.

• The commissioners completed the first reading of an ordinance concerning the care, upkeep and control of dogs in the city. The second reading and vote will be done during the February meeting. If it passes, it will supersede the 1995 ordinance concerning dogs.

• The widening of U.S. 62 has been pushed back at least six years due to Leitchfield's bypass extension. However, after visiting Frankfort, Judge-Executive Kevin Henderson stated that the widening of the road from Leitchfield to Central Milling Company in Clarkson will begin this spring, but it will go no farther than that.

The Clarkson City Commission next meets at 6 p.m. Feb. 11 at Clarkson City Hall.
