Coyle appointed to fiscal court

The Washington County Fiscal Court seat left open by the passing of Magistrate Morris Sweazy has been filled.

The office of Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has announced Johnny Coyle, of Springfield, has been appointed to represent District 4 and he was sworn into office Tuesday morning prior to the court’s meeting. 

Coyle said he was unsure if he’d be appointed the position.

“I was really surprised, I didn’t know if it would really happen or not,” Coyle said.
