Gov. Steve Beshear approved the negotiation of a statewide contract for debris removal for Anderson and the other Kentucky counties affected by last month’s ice storm, announced Judge-Executive Steve Cornish and Mayor Edwinna Baker in a joint news release Friday.

Cornish and Baker learned of the contract during a conference call hosted by the Kentucky Office of Emergency Management.

The details of the contract are still being worked out and specifics are expected to be available some time this week. As of Monday afternoon, Cornish said he hadn’t received any specifics.

The contracts reportedly will include the pick up and haul off of debris from private residences as long as the debris is cut up and placed by the street side, the news release said.

The county and city will continue to accept brush at the designated collection areas.

City residents may take their storm-related debris to the city maintenance garage, which is located on Highway 44 behind Capital Family Physicians, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

County residents may take their storm-related debris to the county road barn, which is located on Versailles Road before the Tyrone Bridge, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday.
