Gov. Steve Beshear has announced that more than $2.9 million in illegal open dump grants have been distributed from the Kentucky Pride Fund for cleanup of 293 illegal dumps in 52 counties.
Taylor County Fiscal Court received $75,750.
Counties agree to provide a 25 percent match for the cleanup of individual illegal open dumps costing less than $50,000 to clean up. The Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet may waive the 25 percent match on any individual illegal open dumps costing more than $50,000 to remediate.
