Strathmoor Village Police too?
for LMPD. The fact is you, as a citizen of Strathmoor Village, are
exempt from the Urban Services Tax (UST) which Louisville uses to
fund garbage collection, fire protection and police protection within the
In 2009, the UST cost Louisvillians .3666 per $100 of assessed value
of your home. You do not pay this. You pay Strathmoor Village
property tax. The 2009 SV property tax amount is .31 per $100 plus a
$95 fire assessment. This property tax not only provides you with
Waste Management garbage collection, contracted service with
Louisville fire protection, and SVPD, but also all the special services
you enjoy as a citizen of Strathmoor Village.
If you call Louisville Metro Police Department or 911, they will respond
to your call. There is no charge. They cannot, however, provide many of
the services that SVPD provides on a personal level due to Louisville's
lack of authority or man power. A few of these include enforcement of
SV ordinances, consistent patrol presence, vacation house checks,
and a quick response to non-emergency calls.
