Sunday hours return for Louisville Free Public Libraries

- Sunday library hours are back! The Louiville Free Public Library has brought back Sunday hours for all participating branches.

[The Local Weekly]

- Redistricting Update: The August "District 12 Dialogue" will be held on Tuesday, August 16th beginning at 7:00pm. This month it will be at the Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway. Councilman Blackwell says, “I will be happy to discuss what we are looking at and the guidelines we must follow in order to comply with federal law. This is the first time we will review the boundary lines for the 26 Metro Council districts since merged government began operating.”

There will also be representatives of Louisville Metro Police, the Division of Licensing and Permits and MSD to answer questions about programs. A representative of Congressman John Yarmuth's office will also be in attendance. For more information about the August District 12 Dialogue, contact Councilman Blackwell’s office at 574-1112.

- District 21's Dan Johnson asks, "GOT STORM DEBRIS?" Metro Government’s Solid Waste Management Services will pick up tree limbs and other storm remnants from trees/bushes as follows:

Call MetroCall 311 to report storm debris being placed out for collection.

Debris should be placed at regular weekly set out point for yard waste. If the amount of debris is beyond the yard waste collection guidelines Solid Waste crews will get to it in time. Solid Waste crews will pickup systematically through MetroCall reports.

Right-of-Ways (ROWs) blocked by the storm’s damage will be a priority. Right-of-ways should not be blocked when setting out your storm debris!

Please be patient with the collection of debris (and all other yard waste) that is set out for pickup and please share this information with your family, friends, and neighbors.

  1. As regards the library it is a good thing for the community that the library is back open on Sundays. It is too bad though that the Mayor and Library Director never mention the role the workers have played in allowing this to happen. The library workers gave monetary concessions to allow the library to reopen on Sundays. Too bad they feel the need to take all the credit and not even throw a nod to the employees and their role.
