Barbourville Mayor: Call 911 if heat, gas, or electric

As the temperature is supposed to get down into the single digits tonight, Barbourville Mayor David Thompson would like to remind everyone that if you have any heat, gas, or electrical losses, you are to call 911 and make the dispatcher aware of your situation. The police will immediately contact the proper authorities and start the process of repairs or whatever is needed to make sure no one is left out in the cold.

Also, a reminder to make sure your animals have proper shelter from the freezing temperatures and wind, and that they have plenty of non-frozen water to drink.
