Judge to settle dispute over mold in Spencer County Sheriff's Office

Posted: Updated:

SPENCER COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) -- A judge will now settle a dispute over mold at the Spencer County Sheriff's Office.

"Just to put it quite bluntly, we don't trust the fiscal court or the county judge executive to do what they should do under the law, unless they're ordered by this court to comply with the law," said Louisville attorney Thomas Clay.

Clay is representing Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump. Sheriff Stump and County Judge Executive John Riley are in the middle of a heated dispute over mold and a new home for the sheriff's office.

Sheriff Stump said back in September that his employees are getting sick because of mold in the sheriff’s office building. He said Monday that a new building suggested by the fiscal court is too small to do the job. However, Judge Riley said nothing seems to satisfy the sheriff.

Their anger and frustration over the issue was easy to see in court.

A special circuit court judge was appointed to hear the case. Judge Karen Conrad is expected to make a decision by the end of the week.
