Jefferson County’s cities express support for proposed waste management bill

JEFFERSONTOWN, KY – (MARCH 1, 2016) – Recently, Rep. Steve Riggs and Rep. Jerry Miller filed a bipartisan bill to clarify waste management responsibilities in Jefferson County, and to broaden participation on the Board of the Waste Management District. The Jefferson County League of Cities strongly supports this effort. Bill Dieruf, Mayor of Jeffersontown and President of JCLC, feels the bill will provide the means for the suburban cities to maintain their environmental leadership in waste management with both innovation and stability. “Suburban cities have been at the forefront of recycling for years. Today, Jeffersontown and many other cities regularly…


Hear All About It From Jerry Miller and John Cosby

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE I’m a little late posting this, but then again, you were probably too busy with a great Louisville weekend to listen to the Rusty Satellite Show. You can check out the show, and have it delivered every week, for free with iTunes. I do know the show’s audience is growing, and I appreciate all of you who have given me feedback on my little audio experiment. This week’s talk with Metro Councilman Jerry Miller is worth hearing, as he clears things up a little bit on the misguided attempt by West End Council members to…

TGIF Local Lunch Post – Head East to District 19’s Miller in Middletown

It’s Metro Council Friday and today District 19’s Jerry Miller steps up to the plate. His turf is  part of Jefferson County that goes from upscale shops to down-home gardening, coffee houses to cows, contemporary to historic in any given direction.

Councilman Miller shares a few of his faves. My wife and I love to go restaurants serving good food that’s reasonably priced.  When I have a late…

Overtime Scandal Typical of Government

Sorry, PulseoftheCity readers, about yesterday. I had to take some personal time and a few of the other projects I’m involved in needed attention. I guess I’ll have to make it up by working overtime, the word of the moment in local news. It’s jaw-dropping pathetic that Metro government has allowed this to go on for so long. That 10% of the 5,500 local employees are managed so inefficiently that they’ve been able to rack up $15,000 in overtime, and that someone made more than their $47K salary in extra pay? Somebody’s head should roll, but Metro is being careful…

Getting Dialed In for the Derby

If I were going to a workplace today, I’d have a good excuse for being late. Traffic all over the East End is backed up because the ramp to 64 at Hurstbourne is closed. Some idiot drove his car into a gun shop at 4 a.m. right at the interchange. On Watterson Trail in J-town, it was bumper-to-bumper for more than a mile at 9 a.m. I Wonder Who God’s Got in the Derby:  A Kentucky politician says he decided to run for Lt. Gov. after “feeling God tugging on my heart to run for office.” Mike Harmon of Danville…
