KPU in full force at Ashland commission

By Aaron Snyder, The Daily Independent

About two dozen members of the Kentucky People’s Union filed into the packed commission chambers on Thursday afternoon in the city building.

Mark Boykin, of the KPU outreach team, kicked off “public participation” by giving a presentation in front of City Manager Mike Graese, Mayor Matt Perkins and the commissioners.

Boykins extended an invitation to commissioners to knock on doors with KPU members on Monday and/or Tuesday from 5-7 p.m. He also invited anyone to attend the community potluck and learning session on URLTA (Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act) on Sept. 23 at 1 p.m. at the Carol Jackson Unity Center.

The act’s purpose is to encourage landlords and tenants to maintain and improve the quality of housing and to make uniform law with respect to the subject of Landlord-Tenant rights among states that enact it. KRS 383.500-383.715 pertain to URLTA.
