City of Horse Cave

The City of Horse Cave is represented by a mayor/council form of government.   The mayor serves a four-year term, and city council members serve two-year terms.
The city has twelve non-elected employees who serve under the mayor: a part-time city clerk, a finance officer, a licensing clerk/zoning administrator, five police officers, and four maintenance/cemetery employees.
All of us have one goal in mind-making Horse Cave a better place to live, work, and play.  We are very proud of our community, its rich heritage and a promising future. We work very hard to serve our citizens’ needs, to provide for their safety, well-being, and to plan for our future growth.
