The Louie B. Nunn Center For Oral History has recently begun the upload of the Remembering City Hall Oral History Project. This oral history project includes interviews with various city officials throughout Kentucky. Interviewees discuss their family, education, careers, experiences, and why they chose to serve in a public office. Other topics include the Kentucky League of Cities, the board’s policies, contributions to the community, and involvement in local economic development. The Kentucky League of Cities (KLC), an association of 370 cities throughout the Commonwealth, is based in Lexington, Kentucky. This organization provides the state with financial, legal, technical, and educational resources, and focuses on policy making, research, and development. To access these interviews go to the Kentuckiana Digital Library.
