City Commission

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.

City Commission Members

Members of the Nicholasville Board of Commissioners include (from left to right): Alex Carter, Commissioner, Betty Black, Commissioner, Pete Sutherland, Mayor, Patty Teater, Commissioner and Doug Blackford, Commissioner.

Commission meetings are the first, second and fourth Monday of each month at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 517 Main Street.
