Louisville Metro Councilman Hal Heiner, R-District 19, launched the first interactive website for constituents this month.
“People are busy, but want to be kept informed and be able to give feedback on their opinions on issues,” Heiner said. “Because so many people receive news and communicate through their computer, I thought this was an important way to reach constituents.”
The website – www.hotlinetohal.com -- has several unique features not currently available on the government site, including a summary of the top 10 issues facing the community, an opportunity for constituents to provide instant feedback on those issues, a zoning section that will provide updates on key zoning cases in District 19, a description of projects by neighborhood and how neighbors can get involved and links to other websites.
“Zoning issues are one of the top concerns in District 19,” Heiner said. “However, the process is extremely complicated and difficult to keep up with. This website will help keep people informed about zoning cases at every step in the process.”
In addition, website visitors can sign up for an e-newsletter, email Heiner directly and find out information about upcoming council meetings.
Heiner represents the suburban cities of Anchorage, Blue Ridge Manor, Douglass Hills, Middletown, and Woodland Hills as well as many neighborhoods, including Berrytown, Copperfield, Eastwood, Forest Springs, Foxgate, Lake Forest and Polo Fields.
