“Coffee with your Councilwoman” - September 11

Councilwoman Welch: MSD on hand for September’s “Coffee with your Councilwoman”
Event set for Saturday, September 11th

Representatives of the Metropolitan Sewer District will join Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch for her District 13’s “Coffee with your Councilwoman” on Saturday, September 11th.

“While this may be considered a dry summer, I am sure there are people who have drainage issues and or questions about MSD,” says Welch. “This is a perfect opportunity to ask questions and at the same time get an idea of some of the plans MSD has for the future.”

MSD representatives will be able to discuss the Northern Ditch project which is moving ahead.

The September “Coffee with your Councilwoman” will be held at the First String Family Sports Grill and Pub, 5921 New Cut Road just off from the Outer Loop. It begins at 9:00am.

“MSD may be on hand but I also want to encourage everyone to come out and let me know if there is any other concern in District 13 that you think I should be aware of,” says Welch. “This is a very informal setting and if you just want to say hello, that’s okay too.” To learn more about the District 13 “Coffee with your Councilwoman” contact Councilwoman Welch’s office at 574-1113.

- Greg Fischer unveiled a "jobs plan" today while standing in front of the Renaissance Zone, "a largely vacant business park south of Louisville International Airport". Fischer said with his leadership, the place could become the next Riverport, (a low-wage industrial park in Southwest Louisville that has failed to live up to expectations).
