U of L Board of Trustees powerless to make decisions until Gov. Matt Bevin acts

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville Board of Trustees is still waiting to hear from Governor Matt Bevin's office before it can make any important decisions.

The board met Wednesday in spite of being handcuffed by a settlement reached in a lawsuit over the racial make-up of the board. Right now, the board only has one minority appointee.

The board is now waiting Gov. Bevin to appoint two additional members but there is no indication on when that might be. 

Until those appointments are made, the board can't make any important decisions.

"It's certainly frustrating because you feel to one extent that you have a role and an obligation but you are really kind of handcuffed to do some of the actions," said U of L Board of Trustees Chairman Larry Benz. 

President James Ramsey's future was not discussed at Wednesday's meeting. 

The board is scheduled to meet again on either June 21 or June 23.
