Nich. commission makes appointments

The Nicholasville City Commission started the year with a handful of appointments to committees and local boards Monday evening.

The appointments included Paula Elder to the Board of Adjustments, Doug Fain and Steven Benson to the Nicholasville-Wilmore-Jessamine County Joint Tourism commission and Mark Wilson to the code enforcement board.
