Louisville news: Tax burglary victims edition [Local news]

  • "Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul vowed Monday to introduce his own balanced budget for the nation if he is elected." Because clearly the federal government's only obstacle to passing a balance budget was not having Rand Paul in the U.S. Senate. Paul should release a draft of said budget before the election. [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "The Kentucky Public Service Commission denied a request made by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway to halt consideration of rate increases being sought by Louisville Gas & Electric Co. and its sister company, Kentucky Utilities. The commission’s ruling means that today’s hearing in the rate cases will proceed as scheduled." [LEO Weekly]
  • "A five-pump Kroger fuel station is proposed near the busy Kroger grocery at 2440 Bardstown Road in the Belknap neighborhood...Neighborhood leaders oppose the proposed fuel station because, they say, it would add to the area's traffic congestion and that lights, noise and fumes could disturb neighbors behind the site on Lakeside Drive." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Whether Louisville Metro Government should collect a projected $1.5 million in revenue by assessing a fee to any home or business that uses an alarm was the main topic at Tuesday's budget hearing with Police Chief Robert White." Perhaps the council should assess a fee to all homeowners who get robbed too, as their irresponsibility in not having an alarm costs the city money. [Courier-Journal]
