Flood Damage?

Fayette County citizens are encouraged to report damage from flooding in homes or businesses caused by last month’s heavy rains.

Mayor Linda Gorton said the city needs citizens to report their flooding to document the local disaster application, and hopefully meet the requirements to receive federal aid. “We had some significant flooding in Lexington, especially near the river,” Gorton said. “We want to do everything we can to help those whose homes or businesses were damaged.” For more information contact Lexcall at 859-425-2255.
