Industrial Disposal Trash Service Agreement
Posted on Sep 25th, 2016
Forest Springs Deeds and Restrictions do not address trash collection so each homeowner may select whichever trash provider they prefer. However, Industrial Disposal is the preferred provider for our neighborhood. By standardizing our trash collection with ID, we are reducing truck traffic, wear and tear on our streets and creating a much better neighborhood appearance with only on trash day per week. Call ID at 638-9000 and asked for the special Forest Springs rate.  Attached is the current agreement.  /editor_upload/File/IDcontract.pdf

Posted on Aug 31st, 2016
From Councilman Glen Stuckel's August 30, 2016 eNewsletter:

MSD wants you to know that anyone in Louisville Metro can purchase flood insurance. Lenders require flood insurance for those inside the mapped floodplain. Those who live outside of these areas can still be at risk for flooding.

Protect yourself and your home by calling your insurance agent to learn more about flood insurance or by going to  
Message for Code Red Emergency Notification Subscribers
Posted on Aug 31st, 2016
From Councilman Glen Stuckel's August 30, 2016 eNewsletter:
The Code Red emergency notification system many of you used recently ceased providing communications to Louisville subscribers. Current subscribers of that system will need to register at for the new emergency notification system called LENSAlert.

In addition to receiving emergency notifications, individuals can use this web site to create a profile for themselves and their household to include any information they want first responders to know in the event of an emergency. When individuals make an emergency call, their safety profile is automatically displayed to the 911 call taker, allowing them to send the right responders to the right location with the right information. Information about medical history, allergies to medications, number of residents in the home, and even a picture of the family dog can be added to this profile.
Smoke Detectors
Posted on Aug 31st, 2016
From Middletown Fire Protection District:
We all have heard the saying “Change your Clock Change your Battery”.  Did you know that smoke detectors have an expiration date, the next time you change your battery on your detectors look for a date on the bottom of the detector.  Most all detectors have a ten year recommendation for replacement.

Purses, wallets, cell phones, guns, and GPS systems are prime targets and should not be left in your vehicle

Carbon Monoxide Tips
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016
From the Middletown Fire Protection District
Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas, but, being colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating, it is very hard to detect. Carbon Monoxide is a product of incomplete combustion of gasoline, natural gas and propane or improper ventilation of these gases.  Symptoms may include headaches and flu like effects; larger exposures can lead to significant toxicity of the central nervous system. (you may have trouble keeping your balance or walking). Prolonged exposure can even cause death.  There is only one way to detect carbon monoxide and that is with a UL listed detector.  There are several of these available to choose from at your local retail stores.  The electric with battery backup and digital read out is one of the most preferred.
