Bank On Louisville featured topic for October’s District 12 Dialogue

Thursday October 13, 2011

Louisville Metro Council
Contact: Tony Hyatt 574-4137/526-3622

Councilman Rick Blackwell has a very special program lined up for October’s District 12 Dialogue. It features Bank On Louisville, a local effort designed to help those who may need access to mainstream financial institutions. It’s a program that can save you money.

“Bank On Louisville may be a something the average person has not heard about,” says Blackwell. “In these tight financial times, it could be a way for some to save money.”

Scott G. Love, Economic Development Coordinator of the Louisville Metro Economic Development Department will be the featured speaker at the meeting.

Bank On Louisville is best described as a comprehensive program to serve the "unbanked" and "under-banked," who may be forced to use expensive check-cashing services. The program helps cut down the costs of fees related to cash checking, money orders, etc. that would otherwise be available for other purposes and long-term financial stability.

“It is something you don’t hear much about in government and it could be the difference for a family living on a tight budget,” says Blackwell.

The October District 12 Dialogue will be held at the Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway, beginning at 7:00pm.

Representatives of Metro Government including Metro Police, MSD, and IPL will be on hand for the meeting. A representative of Congressman John Yarmuth’s office will also be on hand at the meeting.

For more information about the October District 12 Dialogue, contact Councilman Blackwell’s office at 574-1112.
