Update Thursday, Jan. 21st
Fire Chief Chuck Helms, Battalion Chief Josh Cook, Police Chief Stephen Morris, Constable Paul Goodman, and myself, met with Major Mike Hennigan (Scott County Emergency Management) this afternoon at 3:00 at the Fire Department. We discussed the approaching winter storm and the best possible scenarios to keep Stamping Ground residents safe in any likely or probable situation that can arise with this amount of snow and gusting winds.
The Stamping Ground Fire Department will have personnel at the Fire Station during this storm. As always, if an emergency arises call 911. In an non-emergency call the Fire Department at 502-535-7714. If you need shelter the Stamping Ground Baptist Church will have it’s basement available. Please do not hesitate to call if a need arises. Let’s remember to check on our neighbors, too.
Stamping Ground City Hall (502-535-6114) will be open Friday but may have limited hours depending on the severity of the storm. If there is a lengthy power outage, the Stamping Ground Fire Department and Scott County Emergency Management will be assisting with shelter.
The City of Stamping Ground has plenty of salt on hand to clear city streets in a timely fashion but please be safe and stay off the streets unless you are experiencing an emergency the duration of this storm.
Thanks to everyone who attended the Stamping Ground Public Meeting! We had almost 70 people attend the meeting. We have a road-map in hand that can help us achieve some of the goals that the community envisioned back in August. Strategic Plan PDF
We also have plenty of copies at City Hall too. Please review the strategic plan and consider volunteering to be on a committee. You do not have to live within the imaginary lines across the landscape on a city map to be a part of this. From Great Crossing to Minorsville or from Franklin County to Long Lick. Bond, Suterville, Coppage, Plummer, and so many other Scott County locales have talented folks that are part of the greater Stamping Ground area.
Stamping Ground’s greatest assets are the people that will invest their time, skills, and energy to make this community and surrounding countryside a unique place to spend our lives and raise our children.
