Louisville and Jefferson County merger....what did this mean for the average Joe in Jefferson County...did anything change for you after the merger in terms of government services?

I am just trying to get a feel on how things have changed on a day to day basis for the average person?

For me in my part of town, nothing really except I have a heck of a time finding out which police department to call because they keep telling me to call someone else. We haven't gained a thing out here in the county which is why I don't believe in the so-called "merger".

Oh that is a good one . Of course you pay both taxes. Everyone in Jefferson pays their 'labor tax' of 2.5%.

Right. But say you work in J-Town or St Matthews, which I think also have an occupational tax (at least St Matthews does) do you pay both the county occupational tax AND the city occupational tax tax?

That would be a double whammy.

^ OK, thanks....I recall you mentioned Dover Rd, and I thought that was in Shively. I had relatives living on Dover back in the 1960s...
