Somerset Police Department and Mayor Eddie Girdler, Shop with a Cop event 2017;

On Saturday December 16th, officers with the Somerset Police Department escorted children from the Somerset community on a Christmas shopping trip at the Somerset Wal-Mart. The day started out with breakfast provided by Wal-Mart for the children and their families. After filling their bellies the children went throughout the store picking up items for Christmas.

The children were selected through the Family Resource Center at Hopkins Elementary. The partnership with the Somerset Independent School System was invaluable in locating the children and determining what needs they had prior to shopping, such as winter coats or shoes. In addition to the Somerset Schools, the City of Somerset, Mayor Eddie Girdler and the Somerset Office of Alcohol and Beverage Control provided additional gifts and knapsacks to the kids to carry their new Christmas gear and toys.

Events like these are important to the Somerset police Department. It is an opportunity to show the kids a side of the officers they may not get to see. It provides a personal and positive interaction between each child and officer as there was at least one officer paired with each child.

PRESS RELEASE

THE CITY OF SOMERSET RECEIVES LIABILITY GRANT FOR
DATA-LOG EQUIPMENT

“We use every opportunity to make our city safer,” said Mayor Eddie Girdler, referring to the $3,000 that the City of Somerset was recently awarded by the Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services (KLCIS). The grant will be used to upgrade large meters to radio access data without entering the vault, making it much safer for employees that read these meters on a daily basis. “We’re very happy with the recent clean audit that we had here in the city,” Mayor Girdler continued, “but grants like this help us stretch our budget surplus even further, as well as provide added equipment which will enhance employee and public safety.” Dana Whitis, Water and Wastewater Manager for the City of Somerset, thanked KLC. “This grant money will allow us to put remote radio reads on all of our Master Meters and large industrial users. Upgrading these large meters to radio access data insures not only safety to our personnel but also gives us real time accurate reads.” KLCIS helps members increase public safety with a number of proactive programs and services and has awarded in excess of $4 million since the Liability Grant Program started in 1999. “Our philosophy is to prevent injuries and claims from happening,” says Jon Steiner, KLC Executive Director/CEO. “We want to partner with our members, and this liability grant promotes good risk management. There is no better way to invest our members’ money.”

KLCIS provides liability grants to its members annually. As Kentucky’s largest municipal insurance program, KLCIS provides a full range of affordable liability, property, workers’ compensation and other products to municipalities. In addition, the Kentucky League of Cities offers employee benefits programs, financial services, training and education, policy and development, legislative advocacy, information technology and legal services.

The City of Somerset has received the independent Certified Public Accountants (CPA) audit report as required by state law for the period ending June 30, 2017. The financial audit, provided to the City Council, reported a clean audit with no audit findings. Mayor Eddie Girdler said that he was very pleased that the audit was presented as a clean audit with no audit findings and credited the successful audit to the cooperation of the City Council and the hard work of all city employees.

The Budget was in balance and any revisions were approved by City Council with revenues more than budgeted and expenses less than budgeted. Mayor Girdler indicated that Somerset’s Chief Financial Officer, Mike Broyles, works closely with the City Council and all departments to meet all financial standards. The Mayor said that it is a major positive achievement for the City of Somerset, City Council, and city staff to obtain an audit that is clean with no audit findings. He went on to say that the City is proud of financial activities and is happy to provide quality services at a low cost to the citizens of Somerset.

The Audit reported cash balances of $19.9 million. Over $17 million of that is unrestricted or non-obligated that may be included in any budget or revisions approved by City Council. Total long term debt decreased by $1.6 million. The General Assembly is currently reviewing Legislation on the pension system that continues to force cities, counties, and the state to place unfunded liability on every agency’s books. This was required by national accounting standards and no city or county has any say in what is finally approved. Only the General Assembly can make those approvals.

The Energy Center project has been closed with savings of over $350,000 which reduced the amount to be paid back or applied to future interest.

For additional information, please contact CFO Mike Broyles at City Hall or visit our web site at http://www.cityofsomerset.com for a complete copy. The City of Somerset is a fully transparent city with financial information on our web page and STV which televises all City Council meetings.

Recycling Program

Somerset Mayor Eddie Girdler and the City Council are  pleased  to announce the Sanitation Department will be implementing a recycling program at Hopkins Elementary. During National Recycling Week each year we will hold a contest for 3rd and 4th grade classrooms to see which one can collect the most recycling material. The two classrooms that collect the most will receive a pizza party. We are also handing out treat bags that include recycling information, stickers, and activity books. There will also be an art contest where one student from each participating classroom will be chosen to have their drawing reproduced and put on the new recycling trailers. We’ve  received these new trailers through various grants. This is the inaugural year and we are hoping to educate our children on the importance of recycling and influencing our community to continue to do better.

“When  we teach our children at a young age to recycle,” said Mayor Girdler, “we show them how important it is not just for the beautification of Somerset, but also the environment as a whole.”

Somerset is rolling out some brand new wheels, all with the help of Enterprise Fleet Management.

Back in October, the city and Enterprise Fleet Management entered into an agreement for Enterprise to take over Somerset’s vehicle management, giving Enterprise the authority to purchase and sell vehicles on the city’s behalf.
The first new ones are now in the hands of city workers, with Somerset announcing this week that vehicles for the Gas, Sanitation, Wastewater and Parks departments have arrived.
Over the next several weeks, more vehicles should be turning up which will go to those departments as well as to the Police, Fire, Water and Street departments.

In a statement, Mayor Eddie Girdler said, “We currently have an aging vehicle fleet throughout our service departments. By partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management, we should realize cost savings through lower fuel consumption and maintenance costs, as well as provide more dependable vehicles in helping our employees take care of our citizens in a more efficient manner.” Steve Bloom, president of Enterprise Fleet Management, agreed by saying, “Our partnership is going to help reduce the City of Somerset’s fuel consumption and maintenance costs immediately. This initiative is also another example of how Enterprise’s unique network can support municipal governments as well as further strengthen local transportation infrastructure in the communities we serve for the long term.”

The agreement was originally announced in September last year, when the Somerset Council passed a resolution naming Enterprise with the authority to purchase up to 25 vehicles. At that time, Enterprise spokesperson Joey Nunn said that by having Enterprise manage vehicle rotation, the city would receive a high number of lower-maintenance and safer vehicles now, rather than waiting to rotate vehicles out at the previous rate of four per year. At that rate, it would have taken the city 30 years to replace all of its vehicles.

NEWS RELEASE:

CITY OF SOMERSET PURCHASES TWO NEW POLICE CRUISERS

Mayor Eddie Girdler is pleased to announce the purchase of two new vehicles for The Somerset Police Department. Two new Ford Police Interceptor Sedans have recently been incorporated into the fleet.

Mayor Girdler stated, “I am very pleased with these two new vehicles that were purchased as a part of six new Police Cruisers scheduled for this year. I want to thank the City Council for their continued support and commitment to all city departments. At least 30 other city vehicles will be replaced through an agreement with Enterprise, and the City is excited to announce that in cooperation with Pulaski County Fiscal Court, we are adding five new Ambulances.”

“These two new Police Cruisers are very much appreciated by our officers,” said William Hunt, Acting Chief of Police. “The Mayor and City Council continue to show us that they are doing everything they can to meet the needs of our department. A police officer’s cruiser is their office. While patrolling and keeping our city safe, a police officer is in their vehicle more often than not. That’s why these new “offices” are a welcome addition to our fleet.”
