Louisville – With summer just around the corner, Councilman Leonard Watkins (D) 1 wants to hear what kinds of problems or concerns people have for the District.
“I would like for people to come out and tell us what’s on their minds. The city might be able to help them,” says Watkins.
Two Spring Community meetings will be held for residents to meet with Metro Police, M-S-D and Metro Public Works.
The first will be held at the Christ Unity Church, 3107 South Crums Lane. on Tuesday June 6th beginning at 6:30pm.
Then one week later on June 13th another community meeting will be held at the New Zion Community Development Center, 3628 Virginia Avenue. At that meeting, residents are asked to use the 36th Street entrance. The meeting will also start at 6:30pm.
“This time of year people have concerns about crime with the summer heat as well as what can be done about those properties with high grass and weeds,” says Watkins. “We will have answers for them.”
Officials with Inspections, Permits and Licenses will be on hand to assist anyone with a problem with abandoned property or negligent landlords.
The Department of Neighborhoods, Louisville Metro Blockwatch and Metro Parks will also be on hand at both meetings.
