From Henderson Circuit Court Clerk Herb McKee… Kentucky is making significant improvements to increase the security of the identity credential you rely on most. In 2019, all Kentucky credentials (driver’s licenses, permits and personal IDs) will have new security features, arrive in the mail 5-10 business days after residents apply at their local Circuit Court Clerk’s office, will be moving to an eight-year lifespan, and have new pricing.

All credentials will be available in one of two versions: a new standard credential or a new Voluntary Travel ID credential. Voluntary Travel ID versions have all the benefits of a standard credential plus they are federally accepted to board U.S. domestic flights and access restricted federal facilities once REAL ID enforcement begins nationwide on October 1, 2020.

Current credential holders who do not want a Voluntary Travel ID do not need to renew their credential until they are within six months of the card's expiration date.

Note: Current unexpired Kentucky driver’s licenses will be valid for air travel until October 2020, so there is no need to rush to obtain the new type of license unless yours will be expiring anyway.

For more information, please see drive.ky.gov/confidentKY/Pages/default.aspx or contact the Circuit Court Clerk’s office.

Henderson Water Utility Hydrant Flushing

Henderson Water Utility crews will be flushing fire hydrants throughout the city beginning Monday. Hydrants are flushed every spring and fall as recommended by the Kentucky Division of Water to maintain water quality. Crews measure the disinfection strength of the water to be sure it is safe to drink, and to be sure that there is fresh water throughout our entire system.

This hydrant flushing effort will be limited to our most problematic areas of low turnover/usage, low pressure, and dead-ends. Flushing will begin on Monday at 6 AM and continue until these areas have been thoroughly flushed. Utility crews will conduct this during normal business hours and is expected to take 2 weeks. Customers might experience a temporary decrease in water pressure. Questions or concerns may be received at 270-826-2824, or you can do so by email on our website at www.hkywater.org.
