Few details revealed by Floyd County Commissioner Mark Seabrook

NEW ALBANY — Floyd County Commissioner Mark Seabrook confirmed Friday the Floyd County Road Department is being investigated.

“An investigation concerning the performance of the Floyd County Road Department is ongoing and it is being looked at by several agencies,” he said.

He said five accusations have been made within the department. Seabrook said commissioners are waiting for the first findings report which he said should be finished in the next week or two.

Seabrook said Floyd County Road Department Director Ron Quakenbush is on a personal leave from the department.

A message was left with Quakenbush seeking comment, but had not been returned as of press time.
