A public meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on March 5, at the Inter-County Energy Community Room, 1009 Hustonville Road, Danville, for local residents to provide input regarding how they would like to improve the county jail and address substance abuse treatment in the community.

Brandstetter Carroll Inc. will facilitate the meeting, but the main discussion will be for and from the residents and will follow this simple format:

  1. a brief introduction of Brandstetter Carroll Inc. and their consultants;
  2. why we are doing this assessment and planning; and
  3. public questions and comments.

Residents’ input will provide the framework and the priorities for the consultant team to develop their recommendations.  The Boyle County Fiscal Court wants the assessment and implementation plan to reflect the desires and needs of the citizens of Boyle County; therefore, your input is very important.
