  • Marian Village remedies problems found in KHC inspection

    An inspection by the Kentucky Housing Corporation resulted in the relocation of one Marian Village resident in early July.

    KHC confirmed that those violations had been remedied, but that one unit, not listed on the critical violation form, did not pass inspection and that the resident living in that unit has since been given a voucher to relocate.
