Police and Fire

  • New Bardstown firefighters welcomed

    It’s taken 20 years, but the city of Bardstown now has a full-time, paid Fire Department.

    City officials and City Hall staff got a chance to meet nine new firefighters Friday over a lunch of grilled pork chops, green beans and salads, and also were introduced to the new captains, deputy chief and assistant chief.

    “This has been a long time coming for me,” said Mayor John Royalty. “I’ve always felt that Bardstown was big enough to support it, and should have supported it years ago.”

    Monday morning, the BPD sent out a press release regarding a drug arrest that was made following a community complaint. McCubbin said the instance was a prime example of how Bardstown is standing up for itself.
