Louisville Metro Government’s Department of Codes and Regulations will welcome a new director next month. 

Mayor Craig Greenberg has appointed Richard Price, current assistant director of Louisville Metro Fleet and Facilities, to the position effective January 22. Current Codes and Regulations Director Robert Kirchdorfer will retire after 42 years with Louisville Metro Government following a transition period. 

“I want to thank Robert for a life of public service and dedication to our city and wish him well in retirement,” said Mayor Greenberg. “At the same time, I am excited to welcome Richard, another dedicated public servant, as the new Codes and Regulations director. He brings with him a broad base of government and management experience that will be invaluable to the department’s work, which impacts the lives of residents every day.” 

From issuing building permits and inspecting new construction to enforcing of our city ordinances and maintaining vacant lots, the Department of Codes and Regulations plays an active role in the development and maintenance of our city. Later this month, the department will also launch a new public facing rental registry and will begin proactive inspections of rental units throughout the city.

“I look forward to joining the Codes & Regulations team and gaining a better understanding of the many tasks the department handles on behalf of the city,” Price said. “I also want to thank Robert for staying on to impart his knowledge and ensure a smooth transition.” 

Price has served as assistant director of Fleet and Facilities since 2015. Prior to that, he worked in roles with the Office of Management and Budget, Solid Waste Management Services (SWMS), and Louisville Metro Animal Services. Collectively, Price brings with him more than 20 years of experience in operational-based reporting, productivity tracking, process improvement planning, and labor management. 

Price is current a member of the Society for Human Resource Management and serves on the board of the Kentuckiana Basketball Officials Association.
