Koger resigns litter position

Part-time applications sought

WHITLEY CITY — As the county prepares for spring cleanup activities, officials have begun the search for a new litter abatement officer.

    Jack Koger had served in the position since last year but resigned on Thursday so that he could devote more time to caring for an ill family member.

    The litter abatement officer is a part-time/seasonal position funded through a state grant. The officer is responsible for picking up litter along county roads and is trained to supervise inmates from the county jail  who have been approved for work release.

    The position has been posted on the county website ( with applications being accepted through Friday, March 30  at 4 p.m. in the Office of County Judge-Executive. McCreary County Fiscal Court is expected to fill the position at its next regular meeting on April 9.

    In addition to his paid duties as litter abatement officer, Koger volunteered his assistance with the new county recycling program and served as PRIDE co-coordinator along with Deputy Judge-Executive Andrew Powell.

    Though he has already relinquished his recycling duties, Koger told the Record yesterday that he is continuing with the PRIDE program at least for the time being. This Saturday marks the kickoff for PRIDE’s annual Spring Cleanup with the Highway 90 Litter Cup Challenge beginning at 9 a.m. at Cumberland Falls.

    County officials are also planning a Highway 27 Cleanup on April 28. Call 376-2413 for more information.
