  • Resident says City should not clear storm debris from private property

    Hodgenville residents have been cleaning debris from their yards since a May 22 storm took out several large trees and branches.

    The City helped out, collecting limbs that either landed on the sidewalk or were placed there by residents for garbage pickup.

    At least one Hodgenville man is angry that his tax dollars were used to pick up limbs from private yards.
