Louisville’s Merger 2.0 Task Force is delaying its final report to Mayor Greg Fischer, but Fischer should have the report in plenty of time to write new legislation based on task force recommendations.
On Friday, the five subcommittees—data and communications, fire and EMS, transportation, waste and public safety—that were charged by Fischer to review the 2003 county and city merger gave final reports to the full task force. Fischer will soon have several recommendations to consider regarding what parts of Metro Government he wants to invest in.
The full task force is expected to meet once more to write recommendations into one report, which is expected to reach Fischer in a couple weeks. The original Oct. 1 deadline will likely not be met.
Fischer will consider the recommendations and make any decisions before the end of the year.
