Nearly Two Hundred People Ask To Have Their City Dissolved

SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - A petition containing 173 names has been
delivered to Pulaski County Clerk Ralph Troxtell, asking that there
be a vote on whether the city of Ferguson be dissolved.
Ferguson is just south of Somerset in south-central Kentucky.X
It's a fifth-class city with just over 900 residents.
The petition appeared shortly after the city government began
discussing implementing a tangible tax. It was to produce more
money for the city and would tax citizens on anything licensed
through the county clerk's office. The Ferguson city government
passed the tax at the August City Council meeting.
