Eastern Ky Town Facing Uncertain Future

BLAINE, Ky. (AP) -- A small eastern Kentucky down that has no city commissioners, no volunteer fire department and two lawsuits on its hands is facing an uncertain future.

Lawrence County Judge-Executive John Osborne says the city of Blaine is in disarray because so many people don't want to become involved with the local government.

The city tucked away in southern Lawrence County is governed by a city commission. However, there have been no city commissioners since January. It turns out that no one sought the office after the last terms ended in 2012.

Osborne says he's sought out people to fill the positions, but no one has stepped forward.

Osborne says if something doesn't turn around, the town with a population of 245 may be dissolved.
