Hotel association warns Louisville on nuisance rules
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Louisville Metro Council’s public safety committee has tabled a motion to change the city’s public nuisance law.
Local media outlets report that the committee’s decision Wednesday came after the Greater Louisville Hotel and Lodging Association told the committee that it opposes parts of the proposal to tighten regulations around troublesome hotels.
District 10 Councilman Steve Magre (D) wants to change a city law in order to make it tougher for hotels to stay open if it commits violations, including 10 or more people being arrested there in a 60-day period. The current law applies to places where law enforcement officers have criminally cited or arrested people on more than one occasion during a 12-month period.
The lodging association says jobs and revenue could be lost because of the proposed law.
