Year in Review: District 2 Magistrate Wayne Theiss

-A A +A

As the first year of the new administration draws to a close, I would like to reflect on the many achievements that have been accomplished.

The Buckner Mall has been eliminated, making way for a new turning lane.

Several new businesses have been established and the aesthetic of Buckner, the heart of Oldham County, is constantly being improved.

Fiscal Court, in conjunction with the North Oldham Lion’s Club on U.S. 42, is working to establish a community park and possibly a library branch in the future.

Gazebos and landscaping have been placed at the entrances to Commerce Parkway. This is with thanks to Baptist Hospital Northeast, Greenways and the parks departments of Oldham County and the city of La Grange.

Fiscally, the c ounty has reduced some of the debt commitment and is working diligently to hold down the costs of county government.

I would personally like to take this opportunity to thank all the department heads, administrative staff and employees for their sincere and devoted efforts for this past year. We have a very congenial, hard working community and that is what makes us successful.

Have a wonderful holiday season and here’s to a great 2012.
