3: Wage: Metro Council Democrats are poised to approve a $10.10 an hour minimum wage across Louisville, as long as Kentucky's attorney general gives his blessing. Some of the caucus's 17 members said they would like to move forward immediately. But it's better to wait for Attorney General Jack Conway to decide whether Metro Council has the legal authority to control the local minimum wage, Councilwoman Attica Scott said.
8: Bridge Work: In one week the Clark Memorial Bridge will close to all traffic and will remain shut down for 45 days. It's all part of the Ohio River Bridges project and is expected to cause significant back-ups. On July 8 at 12 a.m. the bridge will close and it is set to open back up before Labor Day weekend. If you normally use the Clark Memorial Bridge or even the Kennedy Bridge have you ever thought about taking the TARC bus or joining a carpool to get to work? The options are out there and highly suggested by TARC and Ohio River Bridges Project officials to try to trim some traffic volume from the heavily traveled roadways, especially in the next six weeks.
