Henderson, Ky 10/28/21- The City of Henderson Board of Commissioners adopted a new city flag designed by a 14 year-old citizen at its regular meeting on Tuesday.
Jax Matthews originally presented his design to the commission in July for a flag that incorporates the railroad bridge, the river and other elements on a blue field. After a couple of minor adjustments were made, the new flag was unanimously ratified on Tuesday and will be available for use once flags can be produced.
Among other business at the meeting, the commission:
- Heard a report from Downtown Henderson Partnership Executive Director Lindsay Locasto about a meeting she had recently with new downtown merchants about procedures for parking enforcement. Locasto requested that “scatter” tickets be eliminated in the month of November to see how that might impact parking available to customers of downtown merchants.
- Passed first reading of ordinances creating a new position at Henderson Water Utility that, if filled, would result in the elimination of other positions.
- Accepted public way improvements in Canoe Creek II Subdivision on Arrow Way.
The next regular meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9, in the third-floor Assembly Room of the Henderson Municipal Center.
