In 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit the far south, it cost billions in damages. Now, that same storm is indirectly costing local taxpayers in the city of Barbourville.

When the Barbourville City Council met Dec. 3, Katrina showed up and continues to still cost the taxpayers. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) mandated a non-funded inspection of all United State earthen levees. This inspection has to be completed by September 2015.
