    MCKEE- After hearing repeated concerns from constituents about the many large sinkholes that exist near U.S. 421 North in Jackson County, State Rep. Robert Goforth decided to take action, and he coordinated a meeting held at the Jackson County Emergency Management Headquarters on Monday that brought together principals from various federal, state, and local agencies to begin addressing the situation. The meeting included individuals from the Federal Highway Administration, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Kentucky Department of Natural Resources (Divisions of Water and Mine Reclamation and Enforcement), and the Jackson County Fiscal Court (local Emergency Management and Fire and Rescue). State Sen. Albert Robinson was also present. "This is a very alarming situation for a lot of people who live near these sinkholes and for everyone who travels U.S. 421," Goforth said.
