  • District play starts Friday for Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After four ‘practice’ games, the Bullitt Central Cougars will start playing for keeps this week when they travel into Louisville to take on district rival Waggener.

    There was a time in the late 90s when Waggener and Bullitt Central were district rivals, but that has not been the case in recent years. Now, this is the first district game for both teams after Bullitt Central dropped down to Class 5-A for this season and created the five-team district.

  • Hillview real property tax rate to drop; business may increase

    HILLVIEW - Property taxes will be dropping slightly for residents in the city of Hillview.

    But the tangible personal tax rate will rise slightly for those businesses with inventory and equipment.

    The Hillview City Council voted unanimously to lower its current tax rate of 12.07 cents per $100 of assessed real property to 11.45 cents.

    For a property owner with a $100,000 home, that would mean taxes would go from $120.07 down to $114.50.

  • Tennis community losing a dear friend at month's end

    It’s more than a gathering place for the liar’s club.

  • County must look closely at tax issue

    There is not one individual who would support a tax increase.

    At the same time, few would want to see their government services cut.

    Local government agencies are not as privileged as the federal government. Simply printing more money is not an option.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court members will have an opportunity on Sept. 1 to determine its real property tax rate.

    In just brief conversations on Tuesday, it appeared there might be a possibility that court members could support a slight increase in the rate.
