As the discussion over pensions continues, Council Members Jessica Green (D-1), Keisha Dorsey (D-3), and Donna Purvis (D-5) will host a joint West Louisville Town Hall Meeting at Southwick Community Center to discuss the current budget situation and the proposed tax increase.
“It is important for everyone to understand no final decisions have been made on handling the tax increase or how to deal with the pension problem,” says Green. “I want to hear from the people in my district and how they will be impacted by what we choose as this process moves forward.”
Several Council members are currently holding meetings in their districts following the filing of an ordinance to increase the insurance rate on certain kinds of insurance to generate new revenue to deal with the city’s pension problem.
“When I came into this office, I wanted people to know that they will have a voice on important issues that are facing their neighborhood and their city,” says Dorsey. “I want to hear from everyone who has a concern and hope they will turn out for this meeting.”
“I committed to District 5 full transparency, accessibility and a path to information. My purpose is to ensure that our community obtains valid information about the tax and how it will affect us as a whole,” says Purvis.
The West Louisville Town Hall is scheduled for March 6th and will last from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the Southwick Community Center, 3621 Southern Ave.
