Paper Shredding and Drug Toss Event – Oct. 28 Friday, Oct 13 2017 

Louisville residents are invited to bring unneeded documents and prescription drugs to be shredded and disposed of at a free event on October 28, 2017. The Drug Toss/Shredding Event is in partnership with Louisville Metro Police.

Citizens can protect themselves from identify theft and divert unused medications from the waste stream or misuse by bringing items to:

Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center
Lot W on Phillips Lane
Saturday, October 28, 2017
9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Businesses may not participate in this event. All paper materials will be shredded on site and recycled. Shredding donated by the Louisville Branch of Shred-It Louisville. The Drug Toss will be done as a drive-through event.

Black out all personal information on all medication containers that will be tossed. For safety reasons, we cannot accept sharps, needles, lances, cosmetics, personal care or hygiene items. Medication products should never be flushed down the toilet or drain, burned in the open or thrown in the trash because they can contaminate the environment if they get into the drinking and ground water.

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.

Reservoir Park & Village Manor Access Thursday, Sep 7 2017 

Claremont Access Road Construction 09-07-17Road Under Construction
Work is now underway on a new access road to allow Reservoir Park and Village Manor residents access to and from their homes when a stopped train is blocking Fenley and Blackburn Avenues.  The road is being built to solve a long-standing problem in the neighborhoods.    

Emergency vehicles (police, fire and ambulances) have always been able to use a gate near the end of Claremont Avenue to access the neighborhoods when trains are blocking the tracks.  When the new road is completed and a new gate and lock system is installed, any vehicles or pedestrians will be able to come and go when both roads are blocked by a stopped train. 

The road is expected to be completed next week, with the gate and lock system following in the near future.  Reservoir Park and Village Manor residents have already been informed about how to get the gate opened, using volunteers in the neighborhoods.

West Nile Virus has been found in District 9 Monday, Aug 28 2017 

A Metro trap located near Grinstead Drive has yielded both very high trap numbers and, more importantly, tested positive for West Nile Virus. The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness has taken steps to reduce the mosquito population in this area by treating catch basins with larvicide and fogging with adulticide. But there are many things residents can do to help prevent or reduce mosquito borne vector disease:

1. Use insect repellant

2. Wear long sleeved shirts and pants

3. Empty standing water in your yard every 5-7 days. That includes water in flower pots, children’s toys, swimming pools, tires, gutters, & bird baths, and pet bowls.

4. Keep windows shut when using air conditioning

5. Use screens in windows and doors when air conditioning is unavailable

6. Utilize fans while in a stationary position on your porch or deck

The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness asks YOU to help us help you in preventing mosquito borne vector disease!

All traffic will be detoured during these times.

The closure is expected to last through November 1. During the events occurring on September 8-10, September 23-24, and September 30- October 1, the Contractor will not be working, and will make sure the lanes will be open to be used during the events.
