SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Should Bullitt County contract out its emergency medical services?
Should rates on its medical runs be increased?
Should the number of ambulances be reduced?
Less than 24 hours after Bullitt Fiscal Court imposed and then revised an overtime freeze which could have immediately shut down services such as EMS and the jail, the Emergency Services Committee held its regular meeting.
The hot topic of the day was how to eliminate scheduled overtime with EMS.
MOUNT WASHINGTON--Mount Washington residents can expect to see an increase to their monthly water and sewer bills beginning Wednesday, July 1.
At a recent meeting of the Mount Washington city council, Mayor Barry Armstrong said Louisville Water recently informed his office of a rate increase of 2.4 percent. Also, the consumer price index increase from the department of local is .8 percent. Thus, customers can expect to see a total increase of 3.2 percent applied to their bills in July.
SHEPHERDSVILLE--The sign saga continues. At a recent special meeting of the Bullitt County Tourist & Convention Commission, Tourism Director Troy Beam said they still needed to fix the Lebanon Junction LED sign.
He said he was set to meet with Mayor Steve Masden and some council members a couple months ago but the appointment was canceled due to bad weather.
At previous meetings, the commission discussed trying to pay for half of the sign hoping the city would pay the other half. Beam said it will cost about $18,000 to replace.
