Link: New form of local government coming to Pike County

The Adair Fiscal Court meets at 6pmCT, TONIGHT, Tuesday, May 09, 2017, in the Adair Annex Basement, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY. (AGENDA). Commissioner form of government doesn't start in Fiscal Court, but by petition from the people - so the topic probably won't come up tonight, but many other important matters will. CJE Mike Stephens said on Monday he plans to preside tonight. - EW

By Ed Waggener

With Fiscal Court meeting tonight, and the recently floated idea of the three commissioner form of County Government, there's a timely story about what others are doing. Appalachian News-Express about what the writer calls "an inevitable change in government." See the story at "The Lines Drawn" . (Paywall/Sign Up) It's about events in neighboring Pike County. The trend in Kentucky is toward three Commissioners instead of Magisterial Districts. If anyone has the latest count, or can point us in the right direction to find out, it would be greatly appreciated. By the way, Pike County is the largest county in Kentucky, in terms of area. - EW
