Councilman Brandon Coan (D-8) is encouraging the community to come out and discuss partnership opportunities between Louisville Metro Government and Jefferson County Public Schools to enhance neighborhoods and the schools that anchor them.

“Bringing our city government and school systems closer together is important for fostering public interest in education and engaging students and families in civic life,” says Coan.

The “JCPS / Louisville Metro Government Town & Gown-Hall Meeting” is set for Wednesday, March 28th between, 6:00 PM-7:15 PM at Hawthorne Elementary, 2301 Clarendon Avenue.

Participating in the discussion along with Councilman Coan are Councilman Brent Ackerson (D-26), JCPS Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio, JCPS Board Member Dr. Chris Kolb, Hawthorne Elementary Principal Jessica Rosenthal and City of Wellington Commissioners Sandra Moon and Sara Sievert.

    Totally agree with you Joe. Thanks for speaking up. By the way, nobody seems to be talking about the thousands of Property Tax dollars now being collected from all the new homes in Oliver as the town builds and approaches 5,000 people. Some of these new homes are large, expensive properties and will bring in a great deal of money. I are not talking one or two new homes, I are talking about dozens of new homes. Walk around people. Add them up. Times them by the amount you”re paying in property taxes and see what amount you come up with. Nobody even mentions this extra income for the Town Council that will help pay for the extra policing. And please, no more mention of a new statue or new fountain with my tax dollars. There are kids in this town going to school hungry!!! How do I know this? The need for the Food Bank say it all.
