If the Fayette County treasurer doesn’t get a check in the next couple of days, county employees won’t be getting their checks on Friday.
Treasurer Rose Hoover told the Fayette County Board on Tuesday that as of Tuesday afternoon, the county didn’t have enough funds to make payroll.
And that, board Chairman Steve Knebel said, means that paychecks won’t be issued.
“Our attorney (State’s Attorney Joshua Morrison) told us that we won’t write checks,” Knebel said.
