Neighborhood Place restructuring on hold

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A major cut to a critical resource for Metro Louisville's poorest families has been put on hold after outrage from City Council members.

Neighborhood Place announced this month it had planned to layoff as many as 15 people after cutting $800,000 from its budget in June.

Councilman Kelly Downard for the 16th District of Louisville Metro said the organization was not transparent about how it went about its restructuring.

"How do you make decisions on an organization that has three or four major participants without telling anybody?" Downard said.

Neighborhood Place helps disadvantage families with health, education and employment resources.
