COVINGTON, Ky. - Per Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s directive on public gatherings, you won’t be able to attend the Covington Board of Commissioners’ legislative meeting tonight in person.
However, you can watch the 6 p.m. meeting live to catch an array of important votes on:
- Incentives for several major economic development projects that collectively represent over $23.4 million of investment and more than 500 new or retained jobs.
- Five forgivable loans to help finance façade improvements for five small businesses and historic buildings.
- Updates to the City’s investments policy.
- A ban on conversion therapy - the “ineffective and unsafe” practice of trying to force a person to change their sexual orientation or gender identity - for minors.
- And the first contract for the City’s first-ever $1.66 million Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Program.
The governor’s directive was one of a series of steps taken statewide to slow the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus disease COVID-19 sweeping across the world.
“We’re dutifully following Gov. Beshear’s directives, but even so the business of local government continues, and this agenda demonstrates that fact,” Covington Mayor Joe Meyer said.
