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
Summer Summer is swiftly passing. I trust everyone is enjoying family time together whether it be a vacation out of town, local pool, or your own backyard.

As July is coming to an end, the City Commission has been busy ending one fiscal year and starting a new one.
Many things are happening with our police department. The city of St. Matthews has been gracious in selling us one of their used cars, Officer Wilder is now a Sergeant, and Jack Arnold is our new Officer.

We are working on updating several ordinances and implementing some beneficial ones. They are all listed in the minutes via newsletter. If you would like to comment or have questions between the first and second reading of an ordinance, attend the city meeting to have your voice heard and considered before the ordinance is passed into law. When a new or amended ordinance is passed it will be published in the Courier-Journal and listed on the website in compliance with KY HB 487, Section 143.

As school districts are preparing for a new year to begin, please be exceptionally cautious when going through the neighborhood and be considerate of our younger residents.

If you are interested in contributing to a worthwhile program, Old National Bank at 400 N Hurstbourne is collecting supplies for children needing a helping hand. It is their annual drive called “Tools for School.” Listed below are some items they are collecting:
• Backpacks
• Pens, Pencils, Highlighters, Markers and Colored Pencils
• Notebooks
• Paper
• Binders
• Rulers, Protractors, Compass
• Combination Locks

If you want to help, but do not have time to shop, they will accept gift cards. Any questions about the “Tools for School” drive can be directed to Old National Bank at: (502) 329-2100. They will be collecting the items until August 10th. Any resident in need of help with school supplies or other assistance, contact city hall at: (502) 412-5500.

Wishing you a safe rest of the summer ….

~ Mayor Hornek

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.
