From Our Code Enforcement Officer

Here is a list of things to do to get ready for the change in seasons.
  1. Clean gutters. Clean out leaves and debris from the gutters around the roof. This doesn’t take long but does require a ladder and usually a second set of hands.
  2. Check windows, roofs and doors. Since you already have the ladder out, inspect all windows. Take a good look at your roof and even check any shingles that look loose or raised. The project takes only a few minutes but it can really help stave off bigger problems once winder hits. If you have storm windows, change them out and remove screens from your windows for winter. Look at the molding around each window and seal.
  3. Get heat sources ready for winter. Early fall is a great time to beat the rush and have a heating specialist come out and look at your furnace. Or, have you chimney cleaned if you plan on using the fire place.
  4. Prevent frozen water spouts. Invest a few dollars and purchase outdoor water spout insulated covers. This is a cheap and quick way to help prevent frozen or burst pipes. You can pick these up any big box home repair store.
  5. Clear leaves and brush. Clear any leaves, brush and poles from your yard, particularly around your foundation. If you’ve raked leaves, you can add them to your compost.
  6. Mow, weed and feed the lawn. Give your lawn one last “best effort” before you put away your mower for winter. A shorter lawn will be free from pests and won’t provide nests for mice and moles during the winter. Also, a late fall feeding of the lawn will make it healthy and ready for spring to return.

MV Mayor Note
Good day,

It is a busy season with school out and family vacation time upon us. I trust you are enjoying the “summer break.”

The city commission is working on many projects and events. We are excited to announce that the cities of Rolling Hills and Westwood will be joining us for movie night on September 15th at 6PM in Hounz Lane Park. We hope all will join for this significant event. Learning and understanding our surrounding neighbors will make us all stronger and more desirable communities in which to live. I personally am looking forward to it and would like to thank Mayor Jaeger and Mayor Lambert along with their commissions on agreeing to come together for this opportunity to learn more about each other. More details are in the annual letter that will be enclosed with your city tax and budget ordinances.

Our city-wide ice cream social was held on Saturday, June 6th. It was well-attended and enjoyed by all who were there. I would like to thank Commissioner Cathy Morrow and the Social Advisory Committee in putting together the event. We are pleased and fortunate to have residents and the business community come together to plan these events.

As we move into the new fiscal year, the city has hired a code enforcement officer to work a few hours each month to assist in enforcing the city ordinances. We will be posting a short biographical article and picture so you may become aware of the person filling the role.

By the way, our police officers are now patrolling for the city of Rolling Hills in addition to our city. Previously they had worked with another small city under contract. Sharing this resource helps Meadow Vale afford having a police force.

Advancing into the election season, be mindful the last day to file to be a candidate for office is August 14th at 4PM. Interested parties should file for a city office at:
- Jefferson County Clerk's Office
- Election Center
- 701 W Ormsby Ave, Ste 301
- Louisville, KY 40203
- (502) 574-6100

As previously stated, I would let you know when I made the decision as to rather I would seek re-election. After many hours of reflecting and consulting with my family, I have made that decision. I will be on the ballot to serve a second term. The city commission and employees were informed at the June city meeting. As I have been working on the preliminary 2020 census, there were some boundary issues discovered and I would like to see them resolved. In addition, I truly feel committed to serving where I enjoy living.

Being we are into summer please. be cautious and aware of children playing, runners on the streets of our neighborhood, and our many walkers throughout the residential area.

~ Mayor Hornek

Leash Your Pet


Please keep your pet on a leash and under control at all times. Pets are not allowed to run free at any time in Jefferson County. This restriction includes school grounds and parks. Some parks in the county do offer dog runs where they can be allowed off the leash in a controlled area. Please refer to the Metro Parks website for locations. Also keep in mind that owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets when walking through the neighborhood. The leash law applies to all pets, not just dogs. Owners can be fined for not doing so. So, be a good neighbor and obey the leash laws.
