HENDERSON, Ky. – Starting Monday, Feb. 6, each member of the City of Henderson’s Board of Commissioners will begin keeping office hours once each week.
The office is located on the second floor of the Henderson Municipal Center, 222 First St., in the space previously occupied by the field office of former U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield. Upon exiting the elevator on the second floor, turn left and proceed to the last office on the right.
Hours are as follows:
Mondays, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Commissioner Robert Pruitt.
Tuesday, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. – Commissioner Brad Staton.
Thursdays, noon to 1 p.m. – Commissioner Patti Bugg.
Fridays, 11 a.m. to noon – Commissioner Austin Vowels.
Mayor Steve Austin also has meeting times available in his office on the third floor of the Municipal Center. Citizens may call 270-831-1200 to make an appointment to talk with the Mayor.
Additionally, agendas for the Board of Commissioners meetings will now be made available to the public on Wednesdays before meeting nights instead of Fridays.
The Board of Commissioners meets at 5:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, and regularly schedules work sessions on the third Tuesday of the month.
After briefly considering a change of regular meeting time, the commission decided to keep the time at 5:30 p.m. to make it more convenient for those members of the public who work a traditional 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule.
One of the recent items of business the commission decided to tackle is a review of all ordinances to determine which ones might need to be updated. At the January work session, the commission agreed upon a 12-month timetable for completing the review. The review schedule will be made available to the public to allow comment on particular ordinances under review.
The Board of Commissioners next meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, in the third-floor Assembly Room.
