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.
