LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Louisville Metro Council heard the charges against Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin Thursday night, but since she failed to attend the meeting, it will be at least a week before the process of trying to remove her from the council will begin.

The council now has to wait seven days for Shanklin to respond to the charges that she violated ethics rules. Once the seven days are up, the council will begin the process of a trial.
