  • LIGHTS, CAMERAS, NO ACTION...Court listens to fire concerns

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - For those who attended the Bullitt Fiscal Court meeting Tuesday looking for some answers, they probably left a little disappointed.

  • CONFLICTING SIGNS: MW Council thinks twice; decides to keep sign laws

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Recent discussion about a new proposed sign ordinance has left many confused.

    The Mount Washington City Council had a second reading of a sign ordinance which would overhaul the current one and eliminate items such as signs being hung on utility poles and require people to obtain a permit for yard or garage sale signs. 

    Another element which would affect a lot of businesses is signs with moveable type or flashing arrow signs will only be allowed to be displayed 30 days a year.

  • Regional sewer proposal nears final stages

     LOUISVILLE - Coming up with a regional sewage treatment plan could be a very costly situation.

    But, on the other hand, it might be just as costly to do nothing.

    The second in a series of public meetings on the Salt River Watershed sewer work group was held recently in Louisville.

    The few who attended listened as engineers with Strand and Associates outlined some of the options…and the costs.

    Bullitt, Jefferson and Oldham counties have the only agencies who are part of the work group.

  • Lady Eagles hit a bump in the road on the road

     HEBRON ESTATES – The five-day holiday trip to Charleston, South Carolinas was good, but the results were less than satisfying for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

  • This fire will not be put out very soon

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The media was present.

    The crowd was large.

    The anticipation was high.

    Some came from the show which is known as Bullitt Fiscal Court.

    Others came to see what was going to happen in the latest whirlwind saga known as Southeast Bullitt Fire Department.

    At the end of the morning, most probably left disappointed.

    With the exception of a minor flare up at the end of the meeting, calmer heads prevailed on this Tuesday morning.
