Murray Receives Most of FEMA Reimbursements

Feb 18, 2013

The city of Murray has received most of its federal reimbursements  from remnants of 2008's hurricane IKE,  2009's ice storm and a severe wind storm in 2011 . 

The Kentucky State Auditor’s office found the Graves County Fiscal Court failed to properly pay a contractor and report funds. The auditor’s office 2010-2011 fiscal year report released today shows the county failed to promptly pay a contractor for nearly 1.6 million dollars in clean-up work related to the 2009 Ice Storm. The work was done in May 2009, but was not paid for until more than a year later, violating state statute which orders all contract work paid within 30 days.
