Four FCTA employees are in a temporary office at 1000 Elm Street while construction is being completed on the administrative office complex at 302 Eastwood Drive in Fulton. Those needing to meet with FCTA Executive Director Paul Maxwell, HR/Safety Director Kristin Bonds, Operations Manager Rachel Cook, or Marketing Director Kim Jobe should go to the Elm Street office until construction is completed.
TEMPORARY OFFICES - Four employees of Fulton County Transit Authority have been moved to temporary offices. Executive Director Paul Maxwell, Operations Manager Rachel Cook, HR Director/Safety Manager Kristin Bond, and Marketing Director Kim Jobe are currently working out of an office building at 1000 Elm Street. The building was once the site of a credit union office several years ago.
HELPING FLOODED AREA - Fulton County Transit Authority is continuing to collect items for those affected by flooding in Eastern Kentucky.
According to FCTA Executive Director Paul Maxwell, the agency is focusing on the area served by LKLP Community Action in Hazard. The agency provides transportation and other services for clients in Leslie, Knott, Letcher, and Perry counties.
Maxwell recently had a phone conversation with LKLP Executive Director Ricky Baker about FCTA’s desire to help the residents of his area.
“We offered our assistance with whatever we could help do,” Maxwell said. “We offered to bring a vehicle or two up there or whatever was needed.”
When asked for specific needs, Baker responded with, “Water, water, water.” He also said personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies were among the specific items residents currently needed.
“I talked to him about electronics to run his agency, but he said all were on the second floor of their office building, so they were OK,” Maxwell said.
Baker said seven LKLP employees lost their homes in the flooding. Although they are physically safe, Maxwell plans to use any funds donated for the project to purchase gift cards for these specific families. All items gathered by FCTA will be delivered to the LKLP Community Action office in Hazard and they will get them to the distribution sites in the area.
When news of the flooding in Eastern Kentucky became known, Maxwell and other FCTA employees discussed lending a helping hand to an agency in that area since sister agencies throughout the Commonwealth offered an outpouring of manpower, vehicles, and supplies to FCTA following the December 10, 2021, tornado.
“Agencies across the Commonwealth sent vehicles, drivers, and brought supplies down after the tornado,” Maxwell said. “We lost 11 vehicles during that event. They were all totaled and we still don’t know when we will get them replaced.”
The FCTA leader added that the desire to pay it forward and support other agencies as FCTA had been supported led to the drive to gather items for the Hazard area.
“However much is donated, we will take it up there,” Maxwell added.
Maxwell has also been in touch with the Kentucky Public Transit Association inviting them to join in with the drive.
FCTA will continue to gather items for the residents of Hazard and the other counties served by LKLP until Tuesday, September 6. After that, plans are for FCTA employees to transport the items to Hazard. Those wishing to donate bottled water, toiletry items, cleaning supplies, or funds may do so by stopping at the 1000 Elm Street temporary office of FCTA. Employees at the site will help bring the donations in for those needing assistance.
FCTA proudly serves Fulton, Hickman, Graves, and Carlisle counties.
