Officials vote to sue Kenneth Rogers
Placeholder Image
Warren County government appears to be on its way back to court, but not with the city and not as the defendant in a potential lawsuit.This time, the county will be the plaintiff in possible litigation against one of its own – former county executive and current County Commissioner Kenneth Rogers.The county’s Budget and Finance Committee has voted to draft a resolution to take legal action to recover $124,000 in costs incurred due to breach of contract on a hazard mitigation grant from FEMA/ TEMA issued in 2004. Commissioner Michael Martin made the motion to draft the resolution and Commissioner Carl Bouldin seconded it.The resolution states its purpose is to allow the county to “seek to recoup all costs from the party or parties responsible for breach of contract within a Hazard Mitigation Program grant” from FEMA/ TEMA “in the amount of $124,000, less any amount covered by a performance bond executed by the responsible party.” Although the resolution does not specifically name Rogers, or local resident Randall Dunn of RWRP Properties, they are the two principals involved in the actions which resulted in the breach of contract.
