Welcome to City Hall, where much of city's business takes place. Normal office hours are 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekdays. You are always welcome, and we invite you to become active in any and all government matters in which you have an interest. All official city meetings are scheduled in advance and open to the public.
Nicholasville is organized under the commission plan for city government. All executive, legislative and administrative powers lie in the City Commission, which is composed of a mayor and four commissioners. Commissioners make laws, ensure that they are carried out and perform administrative functions. As the head of the city, the mayor administers oaths, signs documents on behalf of the city, and calls and conducts Commission meetings. The mayor is a fully participating member of the commission and can vote on all matters.
