W.Ky. officials say ice storm report incomplete

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Some officials say a report on McCracken County's response to a massive ice storm was incomplete.

County Commissioner Zana Renfro told The Paducah Sun that the report didn't address a controversy that arose over purchases and fuel distribution. She said other questions, such as whether there was adequate staffing at the emergency operations center, were
unanswered.

Deputy Judge-Executive Doug Harnice says county officials have no immediate plans to consider adopting the committee's recommendations.

He said a majority of the recommendations are already being addressed. Others involve updating policies and procedures.

Judge-Executive Van Newberry appointed the committee after questions arose about purchases county employees made during the
January ice storm, which caused more than $185 million in damages
statewide.
