Paducah City Commissioners asked Mayor Gayle Kaler to request a brief from Paducah Power System on the Rate Recovery Plan at last night’s city commission meeting.

Commissioner Richard Abraham says the City Commission wants more details about a PPS meeting with insurance and bond rating companies this week.

Federal, state and local officials are praising the U.S. Department of Energy’s awarding a three-year $420 million clean-up contract to Fluor Federal Services, for decommissioning and decontamination of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant.

Paducah city officials are still waiting to receive a financial report from Barbecue on the River that they hope will provide more insight into the organization's financial practices. 

Mayor Kaler Replaces Hoover As PACRO Chair

Sep 6, 2013

Paducah Mayor Gayle Kaler succeeded Jerry Hoover as chair of the Paducah Area Community Re-use Organization yesterday, as the PACRO board accepts Hoover's resignation and Paducah Economic Development's proposed administrator contract. 


The shakeup comes after the early retirement of PACRO’S former executive director, the termination of the Purchase Area Development District administration, and Hoover’s resignation due to health concerns.  In assuming the chair, Kaler said she would like to see PACRO become more effective, and learn from Savannah River Site Community Reuse Organization.  PED is basing much of its marketing and asset sale strategy on that group’s model.

Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Bill Cunningham will swear-in Paducah's newly elected City Commissioners and Mayor Gayle Kaler this afternoon at city hall. This is Mayor Kaler's first term along with returning commissioners Richard Abraham, Carol Gualt and new commissioners Allan Rhodes, and Sandra Wilson. The ceremony starts at 5 pm with a commission meeting to follow at 6.
