Newsroom Coordinator

The Meade County Fiscal Court held a special-called meeting on June 24 and unanimously approved the hiring of Dr. John Vitali as the new EMS Medical Director.

Vitali is currently a doctor at Hardin Memorial Hospital. His official start date is July 1, 2021. The motion to hire Vitali was made by Randall Hardesty and seconded by Thomas Goddard.

During the special-called meeting, the Court also voted to bid out an architectural drawing for upgrades to the dispatch building and jail. However, the jail upgrades will take place at a later date.

“We’re not looking to add onto the jail today, but we have dispatch already in the budget,” said Judge-Executive Leslie Stith. “For them to be built together down the road, it only makes sense to make the drawing now.”

The motion was made by Thomas Goddard and seconded by Randall Hardesty before being approved unanimously.
