PDS Management Board

Because a 20-member board could provide an unwieldy relationship with a professional staff, KRS Chapter 147 provides for a significantly smaller group to provide that day-to-day direction and oversight. The PDS Council appoints seven members to staggered two-year terms on the PDS Management Board.


According to KRS Chapter 147, the PDS Management Board’s most important responsibilities include:

  • preparing and assisting in the implementation of the comprehensive plan;
  • hiring the executive director;
  • preparing, publishing, and distributing reports and other materials relating to its responsibilities;
  • preparing and submitting an annual work program and budget to the PDS Council; and
  • exercising general supervision for the administration of its affairs.

The PDS Management Board meets at 5:15 PM on the third Thursday of each month in the Commission Chambers of the PDS Building. Check the calendar for specific dates as meetings are subject to change.
