Girl Scout Troop 2257 Want Your Help

Girl Scout Troop 2257
(members and leaders live in Meadow Vale) is collecting non-perishables for a Dare to Care this weekend in the City of Meadow Vale.

What Are Non-perishables?

Canned items like fruits, vegetables, meats (tuna, chicken, etc.). Things like dry pasta, peanut butter, dry beans are also very popular and needed items.

How You Can Help:

All you need to do, if you want to participate in donation of any of these items, is place them on your porch in a disposable plastic/paper bag or cardboard box. Please leave these items for the girls to start gathering them early in the morning on March 23rd. Pick up will start around 8:00 AM. We should finish late in the afternoon.

We appreciate your help in this service activity for our community.


It Is Spring, Again

With the coming of Spring comes wonderful opportunities as well as issues with which we all should deal. With the change in time, this will allow more daylight hours into the early evening. This, combined with warming weather, means that children will be available to be throughout the neighborhood. It also means an uptick in general pedestrian traffic. Therefore, in the next month or so, be sure to be more aware of these conditions when driving throughout the area.

Also, it’s time many people will start working in their yards to clean up from the previous winter. As you engage in yard activity, please be safe in operating equipment.

As always, if you park your car outside your garage at night, be sure to lock the car doors and leave nothing of value in clear sight. The best way to avoid “break-ins” is to take safety and security measures into account by locking the car doors faithfully.


Code Enforcement Reminder

The City of Meadow Vale is diligently working towards being proactive on Code Enforcement violations. Therefore, you are encouraged to contact the City with complaints, or concerns. Many times rubbish, mattresses and furniture or even poor property maintenance can become a neighborhood eyesore. These issues should be called into the City. Issues will be evaluated and handled by our Code Enforcement Officer.

After the complaint has been verified, the offender may receive a Notice of Violation (with a date of compliance) or a verbal warning. If the violation is not remedied, follow-up measures, including fines and clean-up costs, could be assessed to the property.

Common complaints include:
  • Property Maintenance-Debris around the property, broken and hanging shutters and gutters, soffits detaching from the house
  • Junk cars
  • Parking on the grass or on unapproved surfaces
  • Mattresses not bagged in plastic
  • Failure to notify sanitation company about furniture
  • Excessive growth of vegetation.
  • Household items stacked in carports or driveway
  • Failure to remove limbs and branches from yard
  • Failure to cut limbs hanging over sidewalk


MV Mayor Note
Dear Meadow Vale Residents

After some years of committed service, Aaron Yates submitted his resignation as Police Chief of Meadow Vale on Tuesday, March 5th. The City Commission has accepted. The Commission has named Officer Jim Wilder as the Interim Chief of Police, until a new Chief can be hired.

Regarding the hiring of a new Police Chief, there are established procedures the City needs to follow and a full announcement is imminent. Please be patient and allow the process to be carried out properly.

The Minutes of the monthly commission meetings are released every month in the newsletter each resident can receive. This is done so that you can keep pace with the business being conducted in your behalf as well as the events happening within the City. The newsletter is posted on the website under the News tab. You will need to scroll down the page to see where the newsletters (and minutes) are posted. If you are not receiving an electronic or paper copy, please register online or call City Hall at (502) 412-5500.

The City Commission meets every third Monday of the month at Meadow Vale City Hall, 9408 Blossom Lane, Suite A. All are welcome to attend and ask questions as well as observe the Commission in action. There is, however, a three-minute limit time limit that, with agreement of the Commission, may be waived if the issue is deemed worthy. Additionally, if you other questions or concerns you are encouraged to contact any Commissioner or me by email or phone.

Another issue that directly affects every resident is the 12 ½ % tax increase Metro Louisville is proposing. This means each resident of Meadow Vale will be assessed whatever that increase may be as determined by Metro Louisville. As a city, we have a limited time to react and respond to the State Department of Insurance. Details for both topics will be available via newsletter, website and the commissioner’s meeting.

Please be assured, we are diligently working on these important situations simultaneously.

Worth Quoting

Leadership is not about being in charge. Leadership is about taking care of those in your charge.
