5:30pm, Tuesday, 25-Jun-2019:

CLOUT ALERT! – Louisville Metro Council will vote on the final budget for Metro Louisville at a meeting on Tuesday, 25-Jun-2019.  CLOUT is hearing that the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, AHTF, and the Living Room are both at risk of reduced or zero funding.  Calls to Metro Council members in support of the AHTF and Living Room are requested.

Then an audience full of supporters for these organizations at the actual meeting are needed.  Unlike meetings at which we support CLOUT speakers and then leave, we need to stay for the actual budget vote, which will probably be LATE!  Bring a book, a snack, a water bottle, a pillow and let the Council know we care and we will remember!  The meeting starts at 6pm, but if we want seats in the actual meeting room, we need to be a bit early.
