January 25, 2023

Louisville (January 25, 2023) – The Louisville Metro Council will hold two special Committee of the Whole meetings to interview eligible District 3 and District 6 applicants. The District 3 applicants will be interviewed at the January 30 meeting and the District 6 applicants will be interviewed at the January 31 meeting.

The Monday meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and the Tuesday meeting will begin at 4:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held in Metro Council Chambers on the third floor of Historic City Hall, 601 W. Jefferson Street. Under KRS 61.826 and Metro Council Rule 5A, members have the option of participating virtually from remote locations, or in-person.
