FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Nearly three dozen Kentucky counties will receive refunds totaling $381,400 from coal mining permit and acreage fees.

The 35 counties will get refunds ranging from $25 to more than $67,000, with 10 counties receiving more than $15,000.

The state's Department for Natural Resources collects mining permit and acreage fees and returns a portion to coal-producing counties' fiscal courts for beneficial projects.

Pike County will receive the largest refund of more than $67,000, followed by Ohio County with more than $34,000, Perry County with about $33,000 and Leslie County with about $28,000.
