Kentucky Cities and Counties

The Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation in 1942 that required cities to file certain documents with the Secretary of State's Office. To enforce city participation, additional legislation was passed in 1980. This legislation, now codified as KRS 81.045, requires cities to submit incorporation date, classification status and boundary information.

These records are now available on-line in a searchable format. The database includes information from 1942 to 1980 filings as a matter of historical interest.
