    Oldham County’s Fiscal Court did not approve the goals and objectives of the Comprehensive Plan for Oldham County on Tuesday.

    As detailed in the meeting two weeks ago, the Fiscal Court can only approve, deny or amend the goals and objectives of the plan.

    Property owners in the North Oldham Fire Protection District might soon enjoy a discount on their insurance rates, thanks to a revised ISO rating.

    ISO (Insurance Services Office) is a nation-wide subscription service that most insurance companies  use for establishing premiums for fire insurance based all or in part on the “Property Protection Class” (PPC) rating.  A PPC of “1” is the best you can get and a PPC of “10“ would typically be assigned to areas without any fire protection at all.
