Scouting for Food Friday, Nov 17 2017 

ScoutingIf you received a notice that Scouts would be picking up food donations, this Saturday, November 18, is the day.   Set out bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items by 8:00 a.m. this Saturday.  The food will be picked up by the Scouts and delivered to central locations (including Crescent Hill United Methodist Church’s “Praise Food Pantry” and St. Matthews United Methodist Church) for distribution to families in need throughout the area.

Scouts know how fortunate they are to have a warm meal every night — whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And they know that not everyone is so lucky.  Help them by setting out food this Saturday morning.

Put pumpkins in with yard waste Monday, Oct 30 2017 

wintersquash-pumpkin.jpg.653x0_q80_crop-smartDon’t junk that jack-o-lantern or trash that pumpkin. Instead, put pumpkins in with other yard waste on your regular yard waste collection day once you’re done using them as seasonal decoration.

That will allow us to recycle the pumpkins, along with yard waste, into mulch to be reused in landscaping and gardening. It will help make Louisville look good and prevent the gourds from taking up landfill space.

Pumpkins must be free of decoration other than coloring.

This program applies to residents of the Urban Services District (old City of Louisville boundaries). Customers of other Jefferson County municipalities and of private haulers should check with them regarding pumpkin disposal.

Yard waste is collected on the same day as recycling. To find the recycling date for a particular address, type the address into the MyLouisville tool at the bottom of the Louisvilleky.gov website or click here.

Councilman Hollander reminds drivers MSD construction will change traffic flow on Mellwood Avenue until December 1st Monday, Oct 2 2017 

MellwoodBeginning Monday, October 2nd, a section of Mellwood Avenue will be closed to traffic as MSD continues its work on the Clifton Heights Combined Sewer Overflow Basin.

 “Drivers need to be aware of the change, which is expected to last until December 1,” says Councilman Bill Hollander (D-9). “At the same time, we want to make sure that everyone knows that all shops along the construction area remain open and accessible.”

The construction area is Mellwood Avenue, between Brownsboro Road and Muncie Avenue.

All shops at the Mellwood Arts Center (www.mellwoodartcenter.com), Mellwood Antiques & Interiors (http://www.mellwoodantiques.com) and Mom’s Music (www.momsmusic.com) will remain OPEN throughout the closure.

For those traveling from Brownsboro Road, new signs direct local traffic to the businesses via Drescher Bridge and Thompson Avenues. The businesses are also accessible from Zorn Avenue and from River Road via Edith Road.

Muncie Avenue remains open.

The Clifton Heights CSO Basin will capture seven million gallons of combined sewer overflow, in an average rainfall year. This underground-covered basin will offer the public and Beargrass Creek protection from combined sewer overflows during periods of wet weather. When completed, the project will be largely invisible to the public.

Underground storage is part of MSD’s larger endeavor to prevent sewage from overflowing into Louisville’s waterways. These underground storage areas retain the mixture of rainwater and sewage until the rain subsides and capacity is available for treatment, then gradually release it back into the sewer system.
