The recent transfer of more funds in order to meet payroll is proof that Fayette County is continuing to face financial challenges.
More proof came on Tuesday evening as the Fayette County Board acted on salaries for two county officers and benefits for all county employees.
The board, in a unanimous vote, agreed to freeze the salaries of the county coroner and circuit clerk for the next four years.
