In Nicholasville, commissioners are citywide representatives, rather than representing a specific district or group. Commissioners make laws, ensure that they are carried out and perform administrative functions. All City Commission members were elected in 2018 and will serve through 2020. The mayor, who serves a four-year term, is a fully participating member of the commission and can vote on all matters.
Commission meetings are the first, second and fourth Monday of each month at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 517 Main Street.
Videos of City Commission Meetings can be viewed here.
By ordinance, the City Commission holds meetings in which it hears and votes on official city business on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at City Hall. In addition, it holds a meeting, also known as a workshop, on the first Monday of each month at 5:00 p.m. No votes are taken during workshop sessions. A schedule of regularly-scheduled meetings is provided below for your convenience.
The public is invited to attend all City Commission meetings. Anyone who would like to speak during a meeting is requested, but not required, to contact the mayor's office in advance to be included in the agenda for a particular session.
