Metro Council oversight committee to investigate Louisville mayor’s administration

The oversight committee is expected to announce their intent to investigate Fischer’s administration Monday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The government oversight committee is expected to announce their intent to investigate Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer’s administration Monday.

Committee Chair Brent Ackerson and Vice-Chair Anthony Piagentini  said they will file a bipartisan resolution to look into the decision made by Fischer and members of his administration leading up to and following the death of Breonna Taylor.

The investigation will look into transparency as well as the events surrounding the death of David McAtee, according to the committee’s press release.

An investigation comes after Metro Council President David James and other council members requested a look into the administration during a press conference June 1.

“We have heard the cries of our citizens. They are demanding more transparency about who made what decisions and why related to these troubling events,” Piagentini said. “We will do what we are elected to do. We will represent the people and ensure our local government is transparent and that local leaders are held accountable for their decisions.”
