Mayor Greg Fischer joined us Monday afternoon for an hour-long call-in special. He discussed the city budget, downtown violence (and the alleged racial profiling that followed in its wake), and other recent developments in Louisville.
Topics also included:
- The local option sales tax, which he says is an important local investment
- LG&E’s new 2 percent fee on natural gas.
- The proposed Walmart at 18th & Broadway, saying his office supports an urban design.
- The Beecher Terrace public housing complex and possible moves that would lead to its demolition.
We’ll have more coverage from the interview later.
