The four seats for Pleasureville City Commission will be filled by Victor Harrod, Sandra Woods, Gary Grigsby and R.L. Wilson.

Each member will function in the capacity of road commissioner, police commissioner, parks and recreation commissioner or fire commissioner.

Victor "Vic" Harrod, retired from Ford and now a farmer, is an incumbent who is in his 9th year as a commissioner on the town council. He said he is most interested in getting sidewalks in the city and finding tenants for the empty buildings in the city limits.

R.L. Wilson, another incumbent, has been on the commission about eight years. He is retired after 28 years with the Commonwealth of Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. He has been functioning as road commissioner of Pleasureville and may continue in that capacity.

Sandra Woods is the only newcomer to the commission. She has voiced an interest in working with parents and citizens to get activities for the older youths of Pleasureville. "I will do what I can do for them," she said of her hopes for involvement in the city. She spoke of a restaurant in the old train depot, Depot Inn, as an example of some of the successful business of Pleasureville.

The commissioners meet the first Monday night of each month. They will be sworn in at their first meeting of 2009, Jan. 5.
