Scott County Residents Ready for Landfill Hearing

Residents of Scott County have concerns around the existing landfill near Sadieville. From concerns related to the trucks driving narrow roads, recent accidents in the community near the landfill, concerns over failure to guard against potential health impacts in the community, and the recent attempt to expand the landfill, neighbors are coming together to try to fight the landfill.

They get their next chance this Saturday, with a hearing with the Division of Waste Management. The hearing is about a proposed extension of the landfill for five years after it's current permit. This hearing is only about concerns from existing problems, such as odor, noise, operating oustide normal hours, as well as those listed before. Folks are encouraged to document only the concerns of the existing landfill, not to bring up the issues with the proposed expansion.

The hearing will start at 6 pm, and will be held at the Scott County High School gymnasium. Attendees are encouraged to wear blue.

Kentuckians would lose thousands under House "replacement" health care plan

HOW DO TAX CREDITS COMPARE BETWEEN ACA AND AHCA?
Check the Map & Take Action Now

An analysis from the Kaiser Family Foundation has found that the "American Health Care Act" – the House GOP's plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act – would disproportionately cut tax credits used by low-income, older Kentuckians to help them buy health insurance. That would cause many to fall into poverty or lose coverage altogether.

Georgetown Ready for Fairness

Beginning last October with the inaugural Georgetown Pride festival, members in Scott County have been working with allies like Georgetown Fairness and the Georgetown-Scott County NAACP to gather signatures for a petition asking for a Fairness Ordinance in Georgetown, Kentucky. This petition asked that Georgetown pass an ordinance extending civil rights protections in housing, public accommodation, and employment to include members of the LGBTQ+ community. Allies set and acheived the goal of trying to reach 1,000 signautres by the end of January, and allies delivered their petition to the Georgetown City Council, held a small rally to celebrate the work, and gave comments about the need to pass a Fairness ordinance in Georgetown.
