With the threat of severe weather and heavy rain looming for the weekend, Alvaton resident Lillian Fay is frustrated over a sinkhole in her front yard owned by the state. Fay says she was more than willing to sell the 2-acre sinkhole to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet when the approached her at the beginning of the Scottsville Road Expansion Project

Now, however, Fay says she is dissappointed with the state's upkeep of the site. Fay says a steady rain of more than 2 inches at a time makes the sinkhole flood into her yard. She is also upset by the "eyesore" it has become, and "the potential safety risk."

Fay says state officials have told her there is "no more money in the budget for this project."

WBKO attempted to contact the contractor involved in the complete project, and the KY Transportation Cabinet, but were unable to get ahold of either.
