Proposed merger of Somerset, Pulaski would produce state's third-largest local government

A group will seek funding for a study to look at merging Pulaski County and four municipal governments into one. With fewer than 12,000 residents, Somerset ranks 33rd in population in Kentucky. But if the city plus three others — Ferguson, Science Hill and Burnside — consolidates with Pulaski County into one government representing more than 63,000 residents, it would rank as the third-largest in the state, behind only Louisville and Lexington.
