State to bear cost of cleanup

-A A +A

FEMA covers 75 percent of debris removal

By Linda Ireland

The State Transportation Cabinet will bear more of the cost of cleaning up roadway debris left over from January’s ice storm, according to a news release from Gov. Steve Beshear’s office.

The governor’s directive applies to costs of cleaning up debris along roadways in counties that were declared disasters by the Federal Emergency Management Agency – including LaRue County. Seventy-five percent of that cost is ultimately covered by FEMA, with the remaining 25 percent borne by the state and local governments in the form of “matching funds.”
