Five Appeal Legality Of Library Taxing District

CALHOUN, Ky. (AP) - Five people have asked the Kentucky Court of Appeals to decide whether a special taxing district created for the McLean County Public Library is legal.

The plaintiffs are seeking to overturn a decision by the McLean Fiscal Court that created the district in Livermore, saying the fiscal court violated Kentucky law when it formed the special district.

The group also wants the county prohibited from collecting any money and an order returning any funds already collected.

Muhlenberg Circuit Judge Brian Wiggins ruled Nov. 27 that the taxing district was created legally and that the McLean Fiscal Court had acted appropriately.

County Attorney Bill Quisenberry told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer that a settlement seems unlikely in this case.
