- Indian Hills Reclassified As A "Home Rule" City
The General Assembly passed House Bill 331 in the 2014 Regular Session, and it took effect on January 1, 2015. HB 331 makes omnibus revisions to the Kentucky Revised Statutes relating to municipal law. The previous six classes of cities and the various powers, duties, and responsibilities of these classes of cities have been revised. There are now two classes of cities: home rule cities and cities of the first class. The powers, duties, and responsibilities of cities, when not available to all cities universally, will be based on three criteria:
- City classification — home rule or city of the first class
- A list of certain cities established as of January 1, 2014, or August 1, 2014.
This reclassification does not change the City of Indian Hills' form of government or municipal powers.
- Private Property ~ Trespass
Our recent snowfall prompts a reminder that there is no public property in the city which is a suitable venue for sledding. And, as is always the case, private property is not open to use by the public for any reason. All need be mindful of the property rights of others when planning, directing, or participating in outdoor activities.
- Indian Hills "Publications"
Residents have questioned a number of on-line and printed publications that make use of the Indian Hills name. These publications have no connection to or affiliation with the City of Indian Hills. They are private enterprise or individual sponsored undertakings. The only official City of Indian Hills publications are the quarterly newsletter, this site (www.indianhillsky.org), and the Police Department site (www.ihpd.org).
Several residents have recently received an invitation to join Nextdoor.com. Nextdoor is a social networking service for neighborhoods in the United States. Nextdoor has no connection to or affiliation with the City of Indian Hills. It is a private enterprise that hopes to capitalize by selling advertising to local businesses. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nextdoor for info.
