Richardsville Elementary School, to replace a roof
that was torn off. The request also includes 80 thousand
dollars for damage at the campus of Western Kentucky
University.

The utility companies that cover Warren county, Warren
R-E-C-C and Bowling Green Municipal Utilities, estimated
about 500 thousand dollars in expenses apiece.
