Kentucky law requires all vehicles purchased in another state to be inspected by the Sheriff in the county where the vehicle is to be licensed.
An out of state inspection is only required when a vehicle is brought into Kentucky from another state or purchased in another state, and whereas the owner is going to reside in Muhlenberg County, and would like to obtain a Muhlenberg County license plate. Your vehicle must comply with the provisions of KRS Chapter 189 pertaining to vehicle equipment. Simply put, your vehicle must be in a safe condition for operation upon the highway and capable of transporting both persons and contents in a safe manner. This would include, but not be limited to, the brakes, steering, headlights, rear lights, brake lights, and turn signals being in place and fully operable. Additionally, all window glass must be in place and the vehicle must be equipped with operable front windshield wipers.
The fee for an inspection is $5.00 per vehicle if brought to the office during normal business hours. The fee is $15 if the deputy has to travel for the inspection. If you need to schedule an inspection, please contact the office at (270) 338-3345.
While other drug problems present a huge problem for our community, it may be that no drug is as damaging as methamphetamine. Meth use and production of the toxic drug has increased dramatically in the past few years. In 2008 there were 428 meth labs, in 2009 there were741 labs and in 2010 there were 1078 labs. The meth problem is growing at an alarming rate.
Meth is most likely the most addictive drug available; some experts feel that the addiction rate is 95-99% for first time users. If you know someone that us using meth it is important to encourage them to seek help as soon as possible, as the drug has the potential to quickly destroy the user. It is also important that the community inform law enforcement of suspicions activity. Often drug crimes are solved because of community input.
