Lone Oak Re-Incorporation Meeting

Paducah, KY – Former Lone Oak commissioner Roger Dew held a meeting yesterday on whether the city should re-incorporate as a larger one. Voters dissolved the city last November in a 75 to 64 vote. Dew says voters paid attention only to Loan Oak's higher property taxes and ignored many other benefits. The Paducah Sun reports the meeting didn't fair well with some attending, with nearly half of the 35 people there leaving before it was over.
