Floodwaters Clean-Up For Veterans Referral Center

Thanks to a more than 140-thousand dollar grant, the Veterans Referral Center in Paintsville is working to refresh and remodel after floodwaters poured through the area earlier this year.The director says after the community and several organizations pitched in, the center fixed some of its cosmetic concerns. However, the more serious issues remained, leaving the veterans to wonder what would become of the center in the future.“Cosmetically, you can fix a whole lot. But what is underneath the walls, really, is what matters,” said Project Manager Stephanie Rodriguez. “Especially if you have a lot of moisture in the walls. And we have a lot of elderly veterans here. You know, that’s kind of dangerous.”
