***Update*** The road is now open to all traffic

The intersection of KY RT 30 and U.S. 460 is shut down until further notice. Please find an alternative route of travel.


With hot and humid conditions set to arrive early this week, remember to keep your heat safety in mind. Stay cool, well hydrated, and know the symptoms of heat related illnesses.


Magoffin County 911 received a report of someone pretending to be Magoffin County 911 or a local police agency. They are calling citizens using a scam technique called “spoofing”, where it seems like the number is coming from our dispatch center number of 606-349-4403. They tried to convince the called party that they had a complaint filed against them and needed to pay money to deal with the complaint.

Magoffin County 911 will NEVER ask for money for any service we offer, nor will any local police department. Never give money to any one who calls and asks for it.

NEWS RELEASE: KY 1081 in Magoffin County to be closed beginning Wednesday, June 9

JACKSON, Ky. – Drivers who use KY 1081 (Mine Fork) in Magoffin County will need to find an alternate route beginning Wednesday, June 9. The road will be closed indefinitely to repair a break. The project location is at milepoint 17.75, approximately 0.5 miles from the KY 40 intersection.


Hornet Drive starting tomorrow at 7:00 am will be closed until Sunday for a new water line to be layed from our river intake to our pump station . This is critical since our old line is in danger of being washed out by the Licking River which would stop water flow to Magoffin Co. residents. Please bear with us but this will make sure water service will continue to all Magoffin Co residents.


I have spoken to upper management with AEP and have been assured there will be no planned power outage along restaurant row. The outage will be in the Horse Pen area tomorrow from 11-5. They sent me the attached photo of the work area which is displayed in Red. Hopefully this will clarify the outage area.

Thanks to Greg Salyer and Walmart of Paintsville for donating 540 cases of water for flood victims. Anyone affected by the recent floods can stop by the Salyersville Fire Department and pick up some water.

Kudos to City Councilman Paul Montgomery and School Board Member Jimmy Gullett for picking up and delivering the water.


🚨🚨UPDATE!!! 🚨🚨 We realize the devastation from flooding has hit many Eastern Kentucky communities hard. Data and information is evolving quickly so we are removing the priority counties list from our application language. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as we receive them. Please follow along with our social media and newsletter for our most up to date information and new funding opportunities. Thank you to everyone sharing!


Anyone in the City of Salyersville who had any damage due to the flooding contact the Salyersville Fire Department at 606-349-3256 and let us know what the damages are so they can be documented.


Nearly 3,300 customers in the company’s Paintsville operations area are currently without power after a transformer located in the Falcon substation went offline earlier this morning. Crews working to correct the problem have determined the transformer is no longer functional, and a temporary mobile replacement transformer is required to re-energize the station.

Falcon Station feeds three distribution circuits including Burning Fork, Salyersville and Oil Springs. Customers served by these circuits are without power.

Kentucky Power is currently transporting a mobile transformer to Falcon Station and will begin immediate installation upon arrival. Because of the complexity involved in the installation process, estimated time of restoration (ETR) is 12 midnight.

Customers are encouraged to follow Kentucky Power on Facebook for updates as new information becomes available. Customers may also dial 1.800.572.1113 for updated information. Estimated times of restoration are always available at or via the company’s smartphone app.
