PRESTONSBURG — The resolution of four-year-old contractor bills which have been a hot topic of debate at fiscal court meetings since the spring will have to wait at least a little longer, as magistrates failed to appear Monday at a special meeting of the Floyd County Fiscal Court.


All four magistrates were absent from Monday’s meeting, forcing County Judge-Executive R.D. “Doc” Marshall to cancel the meeting, due to the lack of a quorum.


When asked why he thought none of the magistrates attended, Marshall said, “All I can say is, it must be bad weather,” a reference to Monday’s icy roads and frigid temperatures.


On the agenda for the meeting was a proposal to pay C&C Construction $153,000 for bills submitted from 2010, as well as approval for the jail to contract its food service operation to a third-party, which is expected to save the county between $70,000 and $80,000 a year.


C&C submitted bills for $165,000 last month, but company representative Harpo Castle has said there are more unpaid bills totalling another $850,000 that have not yet been submitted.
