The Benham Power Board has paid off its large debt to Kentucky Utilities. Mayor John Dodd announced the payment at the Benham City Council meeting on Thursday. The large debt, that at one point had the city considering turning over its electric distribution system to KU, was paid with the help of a $100,000 grant from the Richard and Leslie Gilliam Foundation.
