Block Watch Workshop on May 24 Monday, May 22 2017 

LMPDPatchAs a way to help Metro Police and keep homes and families safe, Councilman Brandon Coan (D-8), Councilman Bill Hollander (D-9) and Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4) are partnering with officers of the LMPD Fifth Division to sponsor a Neighborhood Watch Workshop and Drug Toss on Wednesday, May 24th.

This workshop is a focused effort to increase the number of Neighborhood Watch Programs in both districts.

The workshop will be held at the Douglass Community Center Gymnasium, 2305 Douglas Blvd, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

The event will teach individuals how to organize effective block watches and mobilize neighborhoods to work with police to keep everyone safe. Residents and business owners will get a chance to meet some of the officers who patrol their area while they train on how to form a good neighborhood watch program.

The workshop will also provide an opportunity for citizens to drop off old and unneeded prescription drugs to LMPD at the event for safe disposal.

D9 Community Conversation – May 17 Monday, May 15 2017 

Join us on Wednesday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m. at the Peterson-Dumesnil House, 301 S. Peterson Avenue, for our bi-monthly D9 Community Conversation. The topic for conversation will be the upcoming budget. The Metro Council has started the review of the 2017-2018 budget recommended by Mayor Greg Fischer. The proposed budget focuses heavily on public safety, including significant investments in LMPD, while continuing to fund affordable housing, paving and a new Northeast Regional Library.

The $593 million general fund operating budget anticipates $23 million in new revenue, with the greatest chunk of that – $19 million, or 83 percent – earmarked for LMPD and the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, including additional police officers.

The budget proposal was presented one month earlier than usual under an ordinance I sponsored last year.  The ordinance was designed to give the public and Council members more time to evaluate and comment on the budget.

As with all D9 Community Conversations, discussion of any other subjects is welcome and I will be available to talk with constituents about any questions, comments or concerns.  Mark your calendar – and bring along a friend or neighbor.
