Content Description

Newspaper clippings, reports, publications, and material relating to the Falls of the Ohio Metropolitan Council of Governments. The Metropolitan Council of Governments was a group of officials from cities and towns in the Louisville metropolitan area that sought to coordinate their activities and collaborate. They dealt with issues such as air pollution, solid waste, law enforcement, and transportation. The Council materials include meeting agendas, minutes and notes, as well as reports. The Urban Studies Center oversaw "Urban Decisions," a series of discussions by the public of issues facing the Louisville metropolitan area, which were created as a means of citizen participation in the Council's activities. The clippings relate largely to poverty, including rural poverty. These files appear to have come from Joseph Maloney, who served as head of the Urban Studies Center.
