HODGENVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - An embattled city clerk has filed a lawsuit against the Hodgenville city council claiming it owes her $196,000 in overtime pay.

Last month, Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse and city clerk Madonna Hornback were indicted after authorities said they misused city funds.

According to councilman Jim Phelps, the clerk's pay falls under the duties of the mayor and the council is not responsible for the matter.

The council voted unanimously to hire an attorney to represent them.
