Here Comes Old Man Winter!

As 2019 nears its end, we prepare for colder temperatures and icy conditions.  Your City Commission has already taken steps to prepare for whatever “Old Man Winter” intends to send our way.   While we always ask for everyone to do their part in keeping the roads clear, it is especially important to do this when snow falls and temperatures drop.  Thanks for all you do to keep our roads safe!

Unfortunately, there is always a risk of home and vehicle break-ins but that risk is always greater during the holiday season. As a precaution please keep all home doors and windows locked while away. The majority of theft from vehicles are the result of them being left unlocked. Make sure to keep your vehicles locked at all times with nothing of value inside.  Please report all crimes and suspicious activities to police dispatch at 574-2111. If you see a crime in progress call 911 immediately.

The Woodland Hills City Commission would like to wish all residents a safe, peaceful and Merry Christmas and a very happy and prosperous 2020.

City Commission meetings in calendar year 2020 will be held on the 4th Tuesday of each month, except for December which will be held on the second Tuesday.  All meetings are open to the public and will be held at 7pm in the First Baptist Church conference room in Middletown.

Don’t forget to order your quality Woodland Hills cap, $10 each.

Contact the Mayor or any Commissioner to place your order. 

Great gifts for any occasion!

City Council Transitions and More

With the change in seasons, Woodland Hills also experienced its own transitions over the last few months.  Sean Killeen took on a role as City Commissioner from Brad Ricca, and I was entrusted through your votes to become the Mayor of Woodland Hills.  I am very happy to report that Dave Tilford is staying on to continue his selfless service to our city as a commissioner; of course, this is after twelve outstanding years of leadership as the previous Mayor.  While we are elated that Dave is still with us, we are sad to say that Brad Ricca has resigned from the position of commissioner due to his out-of-state move from Kentucky.  Brad’s last day of service was on May 31st, and his contributions to our small city were tremendous.  We wish Brad and his Family a very bright future, as they will all be sorely missed. 

  We were able to complete ordinances that positively affected our small city, to include avoiding a property tax increase from Louisville Metro that could have impacted Woodland Hills residents.  Your city council takes their elected roles very seriously, and will always seek what is in the best interest of you and your Families.  Community input is always welcomed and can be best communicated through the contact avenues below or at our monthly Woodland Hills council meetings.

  Also, after much research and community engagement, the No Stopping signs are now in place and being enforced.  This deliberate action was thoroughly examined prior to implementation and has been years in the making.  The intent is to ensure the safety and property of our residents will be protected and additional damage avoided.  A special thank you goes out to those who participated in our Town Hall on the subject last December.

  Last but not least, please be sure to attend our annual Woodland Hills Summerfest on Saturday, July 13th at 6:30pm.  We are expecting yet another outstanding event with great entertainment, and look forward to seeing you all there!

Michael Ochs, Mayor
