Road department will collect debris

The Latest: Last week’s ice storm knocked down trees, branches and power lines all over Oldham County – and the state – leaving behind a mess to clean up that rivals the problems caused by Hurricane Ike just a few months ago. And just like they did after Ike, crews from the county road department plan to come pick up the debris. All residents have to do is get it to the curb.  During Tuesday’s meeting of the Oldham County Fiscal Court, Judge-Executive Duane Murner announced that the road department would follow the same plan it did in September – bringing the trucks through neighborhoods to chip and haul limbs residents leave by the side of the road. There is no need to call the road department to tell them to pick up the debris. Road department crews will start making the rounds next week.      10 Makeup days will stretch Oldham school year into June   Oldham County students will be in class through the first week of June due to five days of canceled classes last week.  The five days were tacked on to the end of the school year, Oldham County Schools Communication Director Rebecca DeSensi said, with the final day for all schools being June 5, barring more snow days.  The last day was originally scheduled for May 27, but a week of power outages in September and a round of power outages and icy roadways last week changed that. Teachers will work through June 8.  North Oldham High School students will finish the same day.  NOHS students will attend school May 1 — Kentucky Oaks day — for the one day they still need to make up due to construction delays at the start of the school year.
