MURRAY – The Calloway County Fiscal Court on Wednesday heard the first readings of two ordinances to repeal existing ordinances that are superseded by state law.

The first ordinance planned for repeal originally went into effect in February 1997, and prohibited the carrying of concealed weapons on county government-owned property. Deputy Judge-Executive Gina Winchester said Kentucky’s open-carry law supersedes any local ordinance, so the ordinance is not necessary.
