Martin Luther King Day
Stephanie Redd came to the board of public works meeting seeking a permit for a Martin Luther King Day parade to be held Jan. 21.
The route for the parade, which will be a march instead of a vehicle caravan, is planned to leave from City Hall building and travel to First Trinity Baptist Church in Jeffersonville. Redd said organizers will host a meeting Dec. 17 to determine a time for the beginning of the parade and to finalize the route.
