coalWESTERN KENTUCKY (8/6/14) — The governor's office has announced that 34 Kentucky counties will be receiving refunds totaling $399,450 from mining permit and acreage fees.

That money will go to those counties' fiscal courts.

Daviess County Fiscal Court, $1,475; Henderson County Fiscal Court, $1,188; Hopkins County Fiscal Court, $6,075; McLean County Fiscal Court, $863; Muhlenberg County Fiscal Court, $5,575; Ohio County Fiscal Court, $26,600; Union County Fiscal Court, $3,713; and Webster County Fiscal Court, $12,888.
