Image of the Issue

The "Image of the Issue" is of our Phillips Lane Brightside Clean Up that took place on Saturday, September 7th. We want to especially thank our volunteers from the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Louisville Tourism for coming out and making sure the Phillips Lane Corridor is clean and inviting to our guests visiting Louisville this September. 

Jobs & Economics


Property Tax Help Available through LHOME

Property Tax bills will be mailed to homeowners on November 1. If you know now that there will be a financial hardship created in paying that tax bill, there is help available. If you act BEFORE the end of November, you may even take advantage of a 2% discount on the bill.

LHOME spreads the repayment over 12 to 24 months. To qualify for this loan you must be the owner and occupant of the property being taxed and you must have a source of income which will allow repayment over time.

LHOME may also help answer questions about homestead and disability exemptions, if you qualify and have not previously applied.

Contact LHOME's chief loan officer Dan Farris: 502-657-1297 and dfarris@lhomeky.org.
