LEXINGTON, KY – Morgantown Mayor Billy Phelps will serve on the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) Board of Directors for another year. KLC membership elected Mayor Phelps to the Board in 2018 and again in 2020. Each term is for two years.

“Mayor Phelps is an important contributor to the Board, and I am glad we will continue to receive his input for the coming year,” added KLC Executive Director/CEO J.D. Chaney. “We are successful in our mission because of the public officials who passionately support their city and those across the state.”
