Simpsonville City Commission had a busy Tuesday night with several items on the agenda.
Commissioners voted to endorse the Kentucky Rx Card program, which is a discount card program for individuals for prescription drugs.
Ron McClish, pharmacist-in-charge at the Simpsonville Smith-McKenney, was at the meeting to answer any questions about the program.
McClish said the card is a free program and covers almost all prescriptions.
It's mostly for people without insurance, he said.
Those without computer access can sign up for the card at Simpsonville City Hall.
Commissioners also approved the second reading of an ordinance for a joint Human Rights Commission and an ordinance for creating Article 19 of the Comprehensive Plan.
Triple S Planning Commission Executive Director Ryan Libke explained to the commission that the article would allow the city to create special overlay districts where it could set specifications for types of building materials used.
The city commission also heard the first reading on an updated flood damage prevention ordinance and voted to purchase a new city lawn mower for $7,469.95.
