Following is the text from the Fall, 2011, City of Indian Hills Newsletter:
COME ONE. COME ALL
COME ONE. COME ALL
Our big annual event in the City of Indian Hills will take place as you can see on the cover of this newsletter on Sunday, October 2 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. This festivity was started in 1984, and becomes more popular each year. That is why it is so important for you to make reservations to attend so that we have ample food to serve our residents.
This year is especially a challenge for use since for more years than we can count Doll's Market has been our supplier of choice. As you know Doll's Market closed recently, but Sashee Gaslin, who worked for Doll's will cater our event.
We look forward to seeing you at this festive gathering.
ANOTHER POPULAR EVENT - SHREDDING
Once again this year (which actually is the 6th year), Wilson & Muir Bank is offering residents of Indian Hills an opportunity to shred items that we would not like to discard in our normal trash. This will take place on Saturday, October 8 from 9-12 a.m. at the Wilson & Muir Bank, 130 St. Matthews Avenue. This is a great service to our community, giving us the opportunity to clean out those old records, checks, income tax forms, etc. We are certainly grateful to Wilson & Muir for this wonderful gesture.
CHANGING OF THE GUARD
It is with profound thanks and a feeling of loss that at our August Council meeting we accepted the resignation of Nancy Stablein as Councilperson in our City. In her resignation letter, she observed that she and her husband George are out of town so frequently that she felt this would be the best for the City. Nancy has been involved in Indian Hills for a great many years, and she is the only member of our Council Board who has lived in the City not only as an adult, but as a child growing up here. She probably has more knowledge of the history of Indian Hills than any other member of the Board or most people who live in our City.
Nancy's job on the Council has been with Public Works, which includes basic maintenance and she and James Graven have certainly worked to make Indian Hills a beautiful place in which to live.
We wish Nancy and George all the best.
And at the same time we welcome Chip Hancock to fill Nancy's position on our Board. Chip is a Senior Vice President of Republic Bank & Trust. He lives on Westwind Road with his wife and two children. Chip is a very busy person in our community, currently involved with the Boy Scouts, the Urban League and several other organizations. He is a graduate of Ballard High School, University of Kentucky, Kentucky School of Banking and Leadership Louisville.
Your Council Board unanimously approved this appointment and look forward to working with Chip Hancock. A copy of our Municipal Order 11-01 accepting Nancy Stablein's resignation and appointing Chip Hancock is attached to this newsletter.
Below you will find Chief Spratt's Cops Corner where he has also listed some changes in his department. Our police continue to do the exceptional job for the area which they serve, and the crime rate remains enviably low.
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD HEARD IT ALL
A MESSAGE FROM REPRESENTATIVES KEN FLEMING AND KELLY DOWNARD
As you may know, the City of Indian Hills is in two Metro Council districts. District 7 is basically west of Blankenbaker Lane and District 16 is east of Blankenbaker Lane. Ken Fleming represents us in District 7 and Kelly Downard, who lives in our City, represents us in District 16. Following are comments from these two District Representatives who do an excellent job representing our City. In the past we have included Metro information in our newsletters, and we are going to try to have something from each of them in the future.

Metro Council Committee Developing Twenty-six New Council Districts
The committee is charged with proposing a map setting out 26 new Metro Council districts. This proposed map will be submitted to the Metro Council for a final decision in establishing the 26 new Metro Constitutions, the Voting Rights Act, and by the Metro Council. Some of these standards include that the population of each district must be as nearly equal as reasonably possible; the districts must be compact and contiguous; one person one vote and, whenever possible, the district shall respect existing neighborhood, community, and city boundaries.
The committee expects to propose the map to the Metro Council in September, with final passage expected in October. The committee has held public hearings and each Ad Hoc Committee meeting begins with public input.
