Councilman Blackwell To Discuss Budget Process And MSD Repair Plan At May’s District 12 Dialogue

Councilman Rick Blackwell invites residents to the next District 12 Dialogue on Tuesday, May 16th to learn more about the Metro Council’s Budget Review for the coming fiscal year. MSD also will make a presentation about its 20-year Critical Repair and Reinvestment Plan.

“The Council is just beginning its review of the Mayor’s proposed 2017 -2018 Capital and Operating Budgets,” says Blackwell. “The budget review process is one of the most important responsibilities of the Metro Council and it also gives a thorough understanding of how all of the Metro agencies and departments work together.”

Representatives of MSD will also be on hand to give a presentation of their plan to repair and replace important infrastructure over the next two decades.

MSD’s 20-year Critical Repair and Reinvestment Plan covers critical risks in six areas:

  1. Ohio River flood protection system
  2. Stormwater drainage and inland flooding
  3. Viaducts
  4. Crumbling sewer infrastructure
  5. Wastewater treatment facilities
  6. Consent decree and support systems

The next District 12 Dialogue will be held at 6:00 pm at the Southwest Government Center Courtroom, 7219 Dixie Highway.

There will also be representatives from LMPD and Codes and Regulations to help constituents address specific concerns or problems.
