Fact of the matter is people we have got a big utility problem, I think we can all agree, right. Just for example my mother n law lives in a three story home in Lexington and complains about paying a little over 100 a month for her utilities, now here is the reality of it. I live in a single wide 3 bedroom mobile home and my utility bill hasn't been under 400 a month for the last 3yrs. I'm not as highly educated as some of you on this forum claim to be, but that my friends is as plain as the nose on your face. Ive lived in Olive Hill all of my life and it has been steadily going down hill for years. I'm not much on talking about other or muck raking, what really makes me angry is to think that someone is abusing there position and taking advantage of the few good people that still live in Olive Hill, I never thought I would say this bit I have seriously considered packing my family up and just leaving my home because of the cost of living here and the overwhelming amount of BS that's coming from our public leaders. This is unbelievable little Olive Hill KY has made National Headlines again
I agree with you 100%

No, she not the one that teach school, she is the one that married a James, and they are the one that got Danny Sparks the mayor job, so what they going to do with Cheri now, since the AG come back state that it was a state violate to raise the utilities rate without a hearing.
According to the AG, Cheri and them had been charge the resident of Olive Hill 20%-25% more than they were suppose to.
So, wonder what going to happen with Cheri now? Or it all Danny Sparks idea.
Do you think Danny Sparks will be find guilty or not guilty, I believe he could be find guilty since he was cloase to the school ground, what you think?

Yea she also has been contracting out taking bids on work but not even looking at other bids just taking her people from Olive Hill to do the work at Grandview Manor.One of the ladies that works with her said she must be getting kick backs from them because the other bids were a lot lower and she said they are my people. Hmmmm They also have a crack head working there that hasnt even had a drug test but they laid off two other people that they said had to go fix the things he said nothing was wrong or redo tile jobs where the tile was coming right back up but they kept that crack head. Guess its no different than the other lady taking all that money from government then letting her take retirement after she stole money. Thats our great government huh?

I am surprised at this. She was hired for the executive directors position at catlettsburg housing authority in catlettsburg ky. I hope that don't happen while she is in charge of two buildings. We had a director in there before her and she done the same thing.

A more concerning find in the spreadsheet is the city’s assertion that it did not change its residential rates during the month of May 2010, when the city was devastated by the first of two massive floods.
Bills obtained by the Journal-Times, however, indicate a massive spike in electric rates to residential customers during that month, jumping from $8 to $12.80 per 100-kilowatt hours – more than a 50 percent increase.
The AG also sought assurances that utility funds were being used specifically for utility purposes and that those funds were not being used to subsidize the city’s general fund.
Pay rate information provided to the Journal-Times, however, indicate that salaries for both the city clerk and the assistant city clerk are derived from the city’s utility operations, though both are city employees and not utility employees.
Further, a ledger for the utility checking accounts shows expenditures marked for miscellaneous items such as “Sam’s Club” as well as numerous checks made out to “City of Olive Hill” from

I heard at walkers it happened because a guy named Mead was on counsel and he voted for a ordinance letting Cheri and Danny sparks to change peoples' electric bills without counsel voting. Then his wife got mad at him and sued city that he was elected in! How crazy is olive hill and its citizens!

You really ARE crazy. Meade was not on council when Sparks was mayor. Further, it was Meade and his wife that discovered and reported to authorities that the electric prices were being illegally changed. And the lawsuit is ongoing.
