They are elected to serve their constituents, but a senator and representative want the office abolished.
State Rep. Adam Koenig, R-Erlanger, and State Sen. Julie Denton, R-Louisville, have filed bills that would allow the constable position to be abolished.
Koenig’s would allow a county’s legislative body to decide if the position is needed. Denton’s calls for constables to no longer be referred to as “peace officers.”
Taylor County’s constables say they disagree, and believe those in the position provide a needed service.
