25 Twenty-five members of the Louisville Metro Council filed a resolution this week in support of suburban cities and fire protection districts. The resolution has been sent to the Government Administration Committee, which meets at 4 p.m. today.

The resolution expresses support for suburban cities and fire protection districts because “suburban cities and fire protection districts are efficient providers of supplemental services; suburban cities and fire protection districts provide quality and cost-effective services to a significant portion of residents of Louisville Metro; those services are a complement to the ones provided by Louisville Metro and serve a valuable role to the citizens they serve as well as positively impacting the entire community; and one of the promises of merger was to allow suburban cities to continue to exist.”

The sponsors are: Denise Bentley, D-1; Barbara Shanklin, D-2; Mary Woolridge; D-3; Willie Bright, D-4; Cheri Bryant Hamilton, D-5; George Unseld, D-6; Ken Fleming, R-7; Tom Owen, D-8; Tina Ward-Pugh, D-9; Kevin Kramer, R-11; Rick Blackwell, D-12; Ron Weston, D-13; Bob Henderson, D-14; George Melton, D-15; Kelly Downard, R-16; Glen E.
