Free clinics for homeowners

From Councilman Bob Henderson (D-14):


There will be two free clinics to help homeowners address issues they face with delinquent property taxes, the Homestead Exemption or Disability Exemption (for those 65 or older or those on Social Security Disability in helping reduce the property taxes owed by exempting the first $34,000 of the assessed value of your property), consult a housing counselor about reverse mortgages or consult an attorney about at will.

Protect yourself from excessive fees and even foreclosure by coming to a FREE clinic. All unpaid property taxes will be offered for sale to private investors at an auction on July 21.

The clinics will be held on:

June 11, 2011


Shively City Hall

3920 Dixie Highway


June 21, 2011


Northwest Neighborhood Place

4018 West Market Street

For more information about the clinics, please contact George Eklund at 502-618-5892

Economic development forum set for tonight at SW Gov't Center

- "Movies Under the Stars" at the Iroquois Amphitheater continues this Sunday, June 12th. This month’s movie is "Secretariat" and begins at 9pm. Concessions available.

- The Southwest Dream Team is hosting an Economic Development Forum tonight at the SW Government Center. Here's the info from the email I received:
Light refreshments start at 5:00 p.m with the Forum scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. Mayor Fischer joins us along with Dan Jones from 21st Century Parks, Eileen Pickett from GLI, David Morris from the Economic Development Office and John Hollenbach, who is a developer in Metro Louisville. The other two panelists are Gant Hill, who is an area developer and Chuck Kavanaugh from the Home Builders Association.

We will be covering 5 topics in 15 minute intervals and plan on a lively discussion about the future of economic development in the South End and Southwest Louisville. Hope to see you there.

It doesn't look like any neighborhood activists or worker advocates are scheduled to participate.
