Attorney General Calling for Appointment of Independent Receiver for Martin County Water District

Attorney General Andy Beshear is calling for the appointment of a receiver or independent supervisor to ensure nearly $8 million in current state and federal funded projects to improve the water system in Martin County are completed and not mishandled by the water district. Beshear said the district can no longer be trusted to run its operations as the people of Martin County suffer and has failed to follow three “road maps” that would have provided a path to sustainability. The attorney general’s Department of Criminal Investigations has an ongoing investigation into financial mismanagement claims. Kentucky law allows the Public Service Commission to go through Franklin Circuit Court to appoint a receiver, who would temporarily control and manage the assets and operations of the water district.
