Paducah City Commission News
By Todd Hatton
Paducah, KY – Paducah's new police chief, James Berry, was officially sworn in at last night's Paducah City Commission meeting. After the ceremony, Berry thanked the commission, City Manager Jim Zumwalt, Interim Chief Sandy Joslyn, and the police department for their support. Prior to coming to Paducah, Berry served as Chief of Police for Manchester, Connecticut.
Commissioners last night also approved a resolution for funding during the 2010-2011 fiscal year for a Community Scholarship Program. The program would provide each qualified Paducah and McCracken County high school graduate with a two-year tuition scholarship to West Kentucky Community and Technical College. The half-million dollar cost would be offset by $125,000 allocations each from the city and the county fiscal court. The remainder would come from private sources.
