Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger commended Hubie Pollett, magistrate in District 1, at Tuesday night’ Shelby County Fiscal Court meeting for his election as second vice president of the Kentucky Association of Counties during last week’s conference in Louisville.

 “Hubie exemplifies what we look for in a public official serving in a governmental agency,” Rothenburger said. “His honesty, integrity and trustworthiness are qualities that we have come to know well in the county, and we want to congratulate him on being elected to such a high position in KACo.”

“Hubie follows a rich tradition of Shelby County officials who have served in leadership roles at KACo over the years,” KACo spokesperson Cathy Hancock said. “The late Judge/Executive Bobby Stratton served on the KACo board for years, and the late magistrate Robert Samples served as KACo president in 1999. County Clerk Sue Carole Perry and magistrate Tony Carriss have both been KACo president in years past. Sue Carole is chairwoman of the KACo County Leasing Trust program board.”

Pollett, who also will become president of the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association in the spring of 2013, modestly said he was honored to serve in that capacity.

Rothenburger was authorized by magistrates to execute an emergency management mutual aid and assistance agreement between the county and the state. Shelby County Emergency Management Agency Director Paul Whitman said the agreement allows the county to have permission to request additional help from the state when necessary in emergencies, such as an ice storm, in the form of supplies and or personnel.

Whitman said the county put the agreement in place in 2003 under former director Charlie Frazee, but the agreement reviewed Tuesday night would allow the cities of Shelbyville and Simpsonville to be included.

Those cities are required to pass their own agreements, and Whitman said Simpsonville has done so and that Shelbyville City Council would consider a motion at Thursday’s meeting.
