Putting the money into an escrow account, using the funds to upgrade infrastructure, and refunding customers were all suggested as possible ways to make use of the refund.
The Council directed City Attorney George Hogg to research the legality of how they could use the funds before making a final decision.
Discussion then turned to an Aug. 21, 2012 vote by the Council to seek an independent audit by State Auditor Adam Edelen. To date, no action has been taken on that vote. Council unanimously voted to direct City Hall to take the necessary steps to carry out the Council’s wishes.
Meade then read a municipal order expressly forbidding any City Hall personnel from destroying any FEMA records pertaining to the 2010 flooding in Olive Hill. The Council unanimously approved the order.
The next regular meeting of the Olive Hill City Council is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18 at the Olive Hill Senior Citizen Community Center.
