Chaney said there is no set percentage proposed—only a system that he said would hopefully, in time, be “more fair” to cities. “64.2 percent of that new money above 5 million would still go to counties and 35.8 percent would go to cities, instead of (the current) 18 percent.So no, we’re not here asking the General Assembly to give us 100 percent of funds—but there’s no set percentage at all.” KLC President and Sadieville Mayor Claude Christensen said Kentucky cities spend around 0 million a year on construction and maintenance of city streets, yet receive less than million in state road aid.Hubert Collins, D-Wittensville, said he remembers when only around 50 percent of his home county of Johnson had access to water.Today, around 95 percent of the county has water access—about the same percentage of total Kentuckians served by public water systems, said Goodmann—thanks to the availability of coal severance funding for water projects.
Christensen said his city of Sadieville had to use around 13 percent of its general fund dollars to cover street work last fiscal year.
With prompting from Jones, Goodman said the state may ask the Corps of Engineers to help place some device in the area of the Levisa Fork to catch trash traveling into Fishtrap.
From a state agency standpoint, Goodmann said Kentucky has been successful not just at providing access to drinking water but also in reaching compliance with health standards.
Division of Water Director Peter Goodmann told the Interim Joint Committee on Natural Resources and Environment yesterday that over 58,700 miles of the state’s drinking water lines are an average of 38 years old with 16 percent of those lines dating back 50 years or more.
“Many systems are selling 18 – 20 percent less water than they used to,” Goodmann told the committee.
With over $100-plus million in maintenance needs at Kentucky’s state parks, public-private partnerships, known as P3s, are expected to help reduce the parks’ deferred maintenance while employing a strict system of check and balances built into HB 309, said Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet General Counsel Leigh Powers. We’re finding ways to make them better,” said Powers.
