Kentucky Personnel Board http://wkms.org en Ag Department Investigation Not on Personnel Board Agenda http://wkms.org/post/ag-department-investigation-not-personnel-board-agenda <p></p><p>An ongoing investigation into alleged improprieties at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture isn’t on the agenda of the Personnel Board’s last meeting for the year. Board members voted earlier this year to open an inquiry into personnel issues at the Department of Agriculture under former Commissioner Richie Farmer. Board Executive Director Mark Sipek says it could be months before the investigation is completed. A state audit accused Farmer of using state employees for personal business like hunting and shopping trips, yard work, and chauffeuring his dog.
