40% Rebate on Purchase of Shade Trees
While many of us typically imagine springtime when thinking about tree planting, cold weather months are actually a great time to get a new tree in the ground! Planting a tree while it’s dormant will give it the opportunity to establish in its new home before leafing out when spring rolls around. If you’re thinking about planting a tree at home, now’s the perfect time to do it.
TreesLouisville, in partnership with the Louisville Metro Division of Community Forestry, is currently running a Tree Rebate Program as an incentive for homeowners to plant more trees. The Tree Rebate Program is open to all residents of Jefferson County. Participants can earn a rebate of 40 percent (up to $80) on the purchase of a shade tree. Rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds run out. For full details, visit treeslouisville.org/rebate.

The New KY Driver's License
Kentucky is advancing the process of issuing driver’s licenses and personal ID cards in an effort to improve the security of state-issued credentials and comply with federal standards. To provide Kentuckians with options to best suit their needs, all identity credentials will be available in one of two versions: a new standard credential or a new Voluntary Travel ID credential. The Voluntary Travel ID includes all the credentials of the standard with the addition of the ability to pass through airport security checkpoints to board US commercial flights and to access federally restricted facilities.
Please visit the website for additional information regarding the new KY driver’s license.
