A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Eastern Kentucky through Friday evening. Heavy rain is possible through Friday as a strong storm system moves through the mountains. Flash Flooding is likely during this time. Remember if you come across a flooded roadway to turn around and don't drown. Keep it with WYMT for the latest.
The Kentucky River Area Development District held a meeting today to discuss how to keep special district representatives accountable for tax payer dollars.
State Auditor Adam Edelen says he wants to better track special districts and how they are spending their money.
Special districts include library boards and other organizations whose officials are not elected.
Edelen says he would like to bring a more reliable system to the table for the people of Kentucky.
"I believe by engaging the public, we can come up with 4.5 million auditors which is much more effective than just one," said Edelen.
The state auditor hopes to have a directory online listing how tax payer dollars are spent by the end of this year.
