Meet Our Police Chief


The City of Meadow Vale moved to accept the application of Ray Spann to serve as the next Police Chief. Spann is a graduate of the University of Louisville and served with Jefferson County Police as well as the Sheriff’s department. For a relatively brief period, he served as a teacher with Jefferson County Public Schools. Download/view a brief biographical sketch of Chief Spann who will start April 1, 2019.


AS A REMINDER, please observe the speed limit through the residential portions of Meadow Vale. Now that warmer days are here,
those who walk throughout the area will appreciate drivers observing the limit. The speed limit is, primarily, a safety issue. That that speed drivers can better keep their vehicles under control, especially when pedestrians (including those walking their pets) are present on the streets.

PEDESTRIANS are also reminded that they are to walk on the side of the road facing traffic. Bicycle riders should be on the side flowing with the traffic (the opposite side of the pedestrians). When walking, go against the traffic. When riding, go with the traffic.


Emergency Contacts for Kentucky Drivers

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has teamed with the Kentucky State Police and the Department of Criminal Justice Training to launch a new online service that allows state license, permit, and ID holders to designate a preferred contact so law enforcement can notify the contact in the event the cardholder is involved in a vehicle crash or emergency situation. The service is free and citizens can take advantage of this program either online, over the phone, or in person.

  1. Visit, click the Driver Services menu, and select Emergency Notice.
  2. Enter the license number, birth date and full name listed on your unexpired Kentucky license, permit or personal ID.
  3. Enter the name, relationship, and telephone number of the person you would like law enforcement to contact in the event you are involved in a critical emergency.
  4. Your submitted information will become available to law enforcement officers the same say.

Those with limited internet access may call KYTC at (502-564-1257 or provide emergency contact information in person at the Circuit Court Clerk office in your county of residence.

Fraudulent Medical Billing Scams Targeting Kentuckians

Following reports from Kentuckians, Attorney General Andy Beshear has issued a scam alert to warn of medical billing scams targeting families.

Louisville residents have reported a suspicious van driving around paying Medicaid participants $20 for a DNA sample and health insurance information, while other senior Kentuckians are receiving calls offering medical devices through Medicare. One Warren County senior reported $1,300 in medical bills for back braces that were not medically necessary.

Beshear said in both scenarios scammers try to steal the victim’s insurance and personal information in order to receive reimbursement for services or medical devices that were not provided or medically necessary.

MV Mayor Note
Exciting and Good News!

Chief Spann is doing a great job in becoming familiar with our city and residents. He has applied for a grant to supply bullet proof vests for our police officers, organized the cars, station and, along with Officer Wilder, has us well into the process of applying for full accreditation for our police department. We truly appreciate his expertise and congeniality in creating a professional atmosphere for our officers and the City.

I will be representing Meadow Vale and Jefferson County League of Cities at the Federal Reserve breakfast. This meeting should be very informative.

Chief Spann and I will be volunteering with the JCPS District 3 Community Jamboree at Zachary Taylor Elementary. If you have time and would like to help, they are accepting volunteers.

As we wind down this fiscal year and prepare for the next I want to say it has been a good year for Meadow Vale. We are fortunate to have a professional staff and new Commission working together for the progress and betterment of our City. Property values have increased substantially. Our city pride is showing in the way residents are maintaining their curb appeal, which is crucial in elevating and maintaining our property values. Keep up the good work!

I would like to thank our generous residents who participated in the food drive hosted by one our resident Girl Scouts of Troop 2257. It was an effort met with success.

We are open to any positive suggestions on how to grow our community ties. This is a wonderful place to live and I trust you feel that way, too!

~ Mayor Hornek


Worth Quoting

Successful people build each other. They motivate, inspire and push each other. Unsuccessful people just hate, blame and complain.

Planting a Tree: What Know for No Problems

On a warm sunny day, we all appreciate having a tree for shade. Trees also help our environment, provide a decorative touch to our yards while increasing the value of the property. However, trees, when located incorrectly, can present problems when they grow to maturity. To get the maximum benefit from trees, they need to be in an appropriate location. The biggest mistakes arborists and landscapers see are young trees and shrubs planted where they will present a problem when they reach maturity.

If you are planing to plant new trees this spring, make sure you understand how much space the require at maturity and other facts about the tree. As important as knowing where to place one is knowing where not to put it. For instance, for larger trees that will reach 30 feet or more, be sure to plant them clear of sewer lines and underground utilities. Their root system can cause damage that may result in an inconvenience as well as loss of service. Likewise, a tree planted under an overhead utility line (electric or communications) can also present a problem when heavy snows or ice storms hit.

If you need help determining a tree type that will work well for your yard, go to to download their brochure. Also, call 811 (Before You Dig) prior to starting any digging project.
