HARD TO BELIEVE THAT ANOTHER YEAR HAS PASSED! THE CITY COUNCIL AND THE MAYOR WISH YOU HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A VERY HAPPY, HEALTHY 2013.|
2012 was another good year for Indian Hills. No major storms, not much snow removal and we have operated within our budget. No fiscal cliff for Indian Hills on the horizon.
- Election Results
As we mentioned in the October Newsletter, two of our nine board members decided not to run for reelection. The two new board members elected by the citizens of Indian Hills to replace them are Lee Garlove and David Kraft. Both of these individuals will be sworn into office late this month, and we look forward to working with them. Congratulations to all those elected and our thanks to all who voted.
What can we say? A huge success! A lot of hard work by a number of people especially by our Public Works Director Jim Graven and our food catered by Sashee Gaslin, formerly of Doll's Market. With these two people involved and working together, how could it NOT be a success?
We always have this event on the first Sunday of October, and that means next year it will be October 6, 2013. Please mark your calendar!
Shredding has become a very popular event within our City and we once again thank Wilson & Muir Bank for providing this service each year at no cost to us.
- City Tax Bills
As we feel sure you know, the tax bills were mailed to each homeowner
in the middle of October and need to be paid by January 1 in order to receive the 12-1/2% discount. You may remember from previous years, these bills are mailed to the address as it appears with the Jefferson County Property Value Administrator, and if someone else pays, such as a mortgage company or a bank, you need to forward the bill to them.
The face amount is due by February 1, 2013.
- Poplar Hill Property
It has been some time since we reported on the Turner property. A resident and our City appealed the ruling from a Jefferson Circuit Judge permitting the owner to build 12 homes on the property located just off of Blankenbaker Lane. Both sides have submitted briefs and the case is pending before the Court of Appeals of Kentucky. Often, but not always, the Court of Appeals schedules oral argument before deciding a case. The Court has not scheduled oral argument in this case and it will probably be several more months before the Court decides this case.

In the September 2012 Newsletter, we included crime data which showed a significant decrease in most categories, compared to the same time period in 2011. This data has been updated to include all crimes committed through the month of November. As you can see, we continue to see the lower numbers. As a side note, no criminal cases were reported during the entire month of November.
The Department usually sees an increase in crimes during the Holidays, mostly n thefts from autos. The offenders are known to target cars from out-of-town guests of with gifts stored inside. Please keep yourself from becoming a victim by removing all valuables from your vehicle and reporting ANY suspicious activity by immediately calling our dispatch at 893-2677 or 911.
On behalf of the Indian Hills Police Department, I would like to wish everyone a safe and joyous holiday season. See you in 2013.
