Welcome to the City of Hazard...

As Mayor of Hazard, it is my privilege to serve this community and ensure that your priorities are my priorities. At a time when more and more of us are using technology to connect with one another and to solve challenges in our neighborhoods, we must have a website that meets the needs of a modern, growing city. We hope this site meets those needs.

About

Hazard is located in the heart of the Appalachian Coalfields in Eastern Ky. It is found at the crossroads of Highways 15 and 80 and the Hal Rogers Parkway (formerly the Daniel Boone Parkway).

The City of Hazard was founded in 1884 on land deeded to the town trustees by Elijah Combs and his wife, Sarah. Hazard is the seat of Perry County, founded in 1820, the 68th county to be formed in Kentucky. Both the county and the city were named to honor Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, a naval hero from the War of 1812.
