The Fiscal Court, under the Kentucky Constitution of 1891, is the name given to the county legislature and governing body of each of the counties in Kentucky. Despite the name, it no longer has any responsibility for judicial proceedings.
Composition of the Fiscal Court
The County Judge/Executive, the head of government of the county, is an ex officio member of the Fiscal Court. Constitutionally, the Fiscal Court may either be composed of the Justices of the Peace for the county, or of three commissioners elected from the county at large (except from areas within the jurisdiction of an independent city)/ Justice of the Peace is no longer used in Kentucky, under the Fiscal Court Act of 1974.
