Hodgenville is now a Certified City of Ethics

Congratulations to the City of Hodgenville on achieving the KLC Certified City of Ethics status.



Pictured receiving the certificate are Councilmembers Steve Johnson and Glenda Wathen, Mayor Jim Phelps, KLC Personnel Services Manager Andrea Shindlebower Main, City Clerk/Treasurer Toni Burton and Councilmembers Sharon Hornback and Larry Davis. 

Residents and businesses expect efficiency, inclusiveness, and ethical leadership from local government. Certification under the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) Certified City of Ethics Program is a way to recognize cities and city officials that have adopted principles and procedures that offer guidance on ethical issues, and a mechanism to resolve complaints at the local level. In addition, this program increases public trust and confidence in city governments and their services through the training and recognition that this program promotes. To maintain this status, a city must receive training every four years on the ethics ordinance.
