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