Grant Money Used to Clean Illegal Breathitt Dumps

Thanks to some grant money from Frankfort, seven illegal dumps in Breathitt County will be cleaned up. That's because almost $2.1 million were released by the state Monday to the county's Solid Waste organization, as well as 28 other counties in Kentucky. Breathitt's total from the Kentucky Pride Fund comes to $33,916.80. The seven dumps in Breathitt County are part of 171 illegal dumps statewide that will be affected.
