- A CITY BUILT ON COAL -

THE CITY OF JENKINS

Chasity Johnson Phipps, Bennie McCall, Mayor Depriest, Robin Kincer

For his support and dedication to Senior Citizens of Jenkins, Mayor DePriest was presented with an award at the KRADD Elder Abuse Conference in Hazard on  â€‹March 15, 2018.  When Letcher County Fiscal Court closed the Senior Citizens Center in the old Jenkins High School, the City of Jenkins took over the operation of the center.  Seniors are able to meet there once a week and enjoy a meal together.  Mayor DePriest also established a program whereby Seniors could be checked on when weather conditions were bad.  Thank you Mayor for making our city a better place to live.

Mayor DePriest and Miss Kentucky, Molly Matney
