Proposed ordinance would send some Shively residents a $100 check

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shively Council member has introduced an ordinance that -- if passed -- would send Shively property owners $100 checks.

According to a news release, the ordinance was introduced by councilmember Maria Johnson.

"The first time Shively was able to give back to property owners it was overwhelmingly received and appreciated," said Shively Mayor Sherry S. Conner. "And they ask every year when it will happen again."

Mayor Conner has proposed the stimulus program every year since 2011, the release states, but there was no action taken until this year.

"The only stipulations for receiving the checks are the property owners can not owe any back taxes to the City, there can be no liens on the property, and they can't owe any fines resulting from Shively code violations or property taxes," the release states.

"Ordinance #6, Series 2015" had its first reading on Sept. 8 and the second reading is expected on Sept. 20 at the council meeting, at which time the council is expected to vote. The public is invited.
