  • After 15 years, drainage issues still unresolved for Bardstown homeowner

    When substantial storms strike Bardstown and dump large amounts of rain, homeowner Mike Brooks watches the water from a nearby creek rise up through his yard and sometimes even to his back door.

    At a Bardstown City Council meeting Tuesday, Brooks brought his concerns about the drainage issues in the Westwind Trail subdivision to the councilmen. He proposed a $20,000 project to build a berm to fix issues on his property and asked the council to consider pursuing it, adding that he was willing to contribute toward some of the cost — around $5,000-$7,500.
