Local group urges Metro Council for funding

A local group is demanding answers from the Louisville Metro Council as funding to certain organizations could be at risk.

The group Citizens of Louisville Organized and United Together, or CLOUT, invited members of the Metro Council to its assembly Tuesday at Memorial Auditorium.

At the event, CLOUT members urged the council to keep funding Louisville's Affordable Housing Trust Fund and The Living Room.

"We're calling on our officials to take bold actions and addressing these problems even during these very difficult financial times," said the Rev. Bill Burks, of St. John Paul II Catholic Church.
