Online Forum for Mayors, Councilmembers and Commissioners

Cities Helping Cities
Elected Officials Forum - 
Sharing ideas and Working Through Challenges. 

Elected city officials are invited to share ideas and discuss challenges with the Cities Helping Cities Elected Officials Forum.

Provided as a service by the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC), this interactive online tool will give mayors, council members and commissioners the chance to discuss the good, the bad and the challenges leaders face. The forum is an ongoing way to ask general questions and discuss issues/ideas with other elected city officials.

The forum will be private. It will be accessible by current elected officials of KLC member cities. While no one at KLC will be involved in the discussions, the forum will be reviewed by a KLC staff person.

  • If you have a KLC username and password, enter it after clicking “Access Your Online Account” at the top right corner of the web page.
