BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - The Barren River Area Development District executive council has voted to pay nearly $83,000 to the Kentucky Department of Aging and Independent Living.

The Daily News (https://bit.ly/29n43Tb) reports the action on Tuesday came after the state agency raised objections in September to the regional district using funds for salary bonuses, saying it was not an allowable expense.

The executive council decided to pay the money because officials “felt it was in the best interest of the ADD,” according to Metcalfe County Judge-Executive Greg Wilson, who chairs the executive council and the BRADD board.

Butler County Judge-Executive David Fields said the board action comes on the heels of the state saying it would revoke the DAIL program from the Bluegrass Area Development District because the federal government is investigating it for alleged improper expenditures.
