Dear Ms Beaufait:


We will be discussing parking issues during the City Councilís February 26th study session. That session will start at 7:00PM, but there is at least one other issue on the agenda that the Council will discuss prior to taking up the parking issue. Consequently, I would anticipate the parking matter will start around 7:30 to 7:45PM.


Please provide to me no later than Friday, February 15th any information you would like me to include in the Councilís packet of information for that meeting. That will give me time to incorporate it into the packet, along with the other information for the meeting.


I would appreciate electronic copies of all information. However, if that is not possible, we can scan information and include it that way. The packet is distributed electronically to the Council and published on the Cityís website (http://www.louisvilleco.gov/) no later than the Friday before the meeting; in this case, that will be on Friday, February 22. I understand you think the Council will need two weeks to review the information you think is relevant. I would suggest that the Mayor and Council are quite adept at reviewing a significant volume of information in a relatively short period of time.


So you understand the process, City Charter prohibits the Council from taking action or giving direction at a study session. Consequently, there will only be discussion at the February 26th meeting.  If Council wishes to make changes to the Cityís Code (including parking regulations) that would happen at a later date.


Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

My name is Bev Beaufait.  I live at 388 W. Elm Street.  The Mayor asked me to contact you at the beginning of February to set up a presentation to City Council.  Here is a quote from his e-mail to me on January 3.


"I've arranged to have parking issues in general discussed at a city council study session in February or March (our agendas are full before that). I'll try and remember to let you know the exact date but if you could check our agendas online that would be a good backup to my memory. Before that meeting I'd recommend you get photos you want us to see to the city staff so they can show them to us or you could make photocopies. Please contact Malcolm Fleming our city manager about this in early February."


I have Power Point Presentation photo hand outs, which include 8 months worth of pictures.  Some handouts are 1 page; some are 3 or more.


I have 6 e-mails from the Chief of Police that I want presented to City Council, too.


I will have a cover letter explaining my parking concerns on public streets in private neighborhoods with long term abandonment/parking issues of commercial and privately owned vehicles.


Because there will be so much evidence presented to City Council, I will need at least 3 weeks notice, as it will take at least 2 weeks for City Council to review my facts.


If you would be so kind as to let me know the date for my presentation to City Council, I would truly appreciate it, so I can get this information to City Council in a timely fashion.


If I give you a "Master Copy" of my paperwork, can you make copies for each member of City Council to hand it out to them 2 weeks, before I appear in person?  Is this possible?  Or should I take all the copies myself and distribute it to the Front Desk area where the City Council drawers are located?


If you could get back to me this this information, when you have it, I would greatly appreciate it.


Thanks for your time.
