3-time Boyd County judge-executive, William F. Scott, dies at 77

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 19, 2014 4:01 AM EDT

Funeral services are Saturday in Ashland for William F. Scott, who served three terms as Boyd County judge-executive.

The Independent reported that the 77-year-old Scott, of Cannonsburg, died Tuesday at Cabell-Huntington Hospital in West Virginia and was hospitalized last week after suffering a massive stroke.

The Republican served two terms as a Boyd County commissioner from 1982 to 1990 before being elected judge-executive in 1990. He lost a bid for re-election in 1994 but won again in 1999 and served two consecutive terms. He was defeated in 2006 by current Judge-Executive William "Bud" Stevens.

As the county's chief executive, Scott oversaw establishment of a county sewer system, implementation of a payroll and net profits tax, completion of the county animal shelter and relocation of the county Road Department.
