We've all heard of people fighting to get on disability, but not off of it.

A former Metro police officer, who lost his leg, fought to end his benefits. "I was hired in 1989, road Dixie Highway on 3rd shift and then in 1996 I went to the K-9 Unit," said Kevin Huber, Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy.

After nearly 20 years as a local police officer, Kevin Huber was forced to retire because of several failed knee replacements.

Mob violence OT costs city almost $1 million

When a teenage mob terrorized Louisville's downtown last March, the startled citizenry demanded more cops to control the heart of their city. The mayor and police chief faced a conundrum.

Shift cops downtown from other parts of the city, or quickly burn through the police department's overtime budget. They chose to spend the money.

Police officers logged more than 25,000 hours in overtime during the six weeks between the March 22 unrest and the Derby. It cost just shy of $1 million, a 40 percent increase in overtime payments from the same stretch of time the year before, according to department records.

Metro Council members offer plan to reduce LG&E fee for new police officers

Louisville Metro Council members are expected Thursday to offer a plan for LG&E natural gas customers to pay a smaller increase in their bills for expanded police services, as proposed in Mayor Fischer's 2014-15 city budget.

The measure would propose a fee ranging from a minimum of 1.5 percent to a maximum of 2 percent, reducing the total LG&E franchise fee by $1.8 million. Fischer promoted his plan at 3 percent with an average natural gas customer in Louisville Metro, except for those in incorporated small cities, paying an additional $20 per year. The council plan would reduce added costs to $12 per year on average.
