Unified Government Study: Jerry Abramson Speaks, Part 1

In this first video, the honorable Judge Ken Howard introduces the HCU Unified Government Study.  Judge Howard addresses some of the goals of the ongoing study:

The study seeks to determine how Hardin County might be served by some form of unified government. The study includes an examination of the existing jurisdictions in Hardin County, an analysis of other communities which have established unified governments, interviews with key community leaders, and community forums held throughout Hardin County for the purpose of sharing some of the early findings from the study, and, most importantly obtaining input from the community’s citizens.

Following Judge Howard’s introduction, former Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson talks about Louisville and Jefferson County’s experience with transitioning to unified government.

Check back tomorrow for Part 2.

HCU encourages all Hardin County citizens to make your mark on the ongoing study. Please attend the first public forum on August 4th at 4:30 pmat the Hardin County Schools’ Performing Arts Center.
