Louisville (January 16, 2024) – Metro Council President Markus Winkler (D-17) has announced the Chairs and Vice Chairs of the Metro Council’s Committees for 2024.

There will be eight standing committees this year, which will address the priorities and needs of Metro Government and the community.

“As we begin a new year, I’m pleased to announce the Chairs and Vice Chairs for the 2024 Metro Council Committees. The committee structure from last year proved effective, so I have only made a few small adjustments for this year,” said President Winkler. “I want to express my gratitude to my fellow Metro Council members for their contributions in making this process seamless and for their willingness to take on leadership roles within these committees.”

President Winkler will chair two committees, Committee on Committees and the Committee of the Whole, and serve as an ex officio member of all other committees.

The first committee week is scheduled for the week of January 22, 2024, and the next Metro Council meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 1.
