City of London App

The City of London’s app is here! Download it on the Apple Store or Google Play today. The app’s focus is to better serve those who live and work in London, as well as visitors.

Mayor Troy Rudder was initially approached by London Fire Cheif Carl Hacker about the need for an app. London Fire Public Relations Magen Zawko was tasked with the development and within approximately three months the app came to life.

The main menu of the app is simplified by News, Info Share, Explore, Commerce, and Local Info.

News will be pushed to app users featuring local alerts (road closures, emergency notifications, etc.), local business updates, City Council updates, and general community news. Info Share menu allows citizens to communicate with city departments through submitting easy to fill forms. Explore features local events and a parks directory. Commerce provides local Chamber of Commerce information, payment to the London Utility Commission, and a coupon directory including local small businesses.

Lastly, the Local Info section has a directory of all the City’s departments, City Council, and Public Works information.

“I hope the app improves the livelihood of our citizens and increases positive communication. The app will continually be updated to improve more and more, communication is a two-way street and we’re always looking for ways to improve,” Zawko said.

“Download it, look through it, send a review and let’s move forward, London!”

London Fire Dept. hosts Brown Bag Giveaway

A long-time holiday tradition was brought back to life this year through a partnership between the London Fire Department, London Firemen’s Club, Kentucky State Police Post 11 and Cumberland Valley Area Development District (CVADD).

The Brown Bag Giveaway provided goody bags to children-in-need with the mission of spreading Christmas joy to our surrounding community.

Community volunteers assisted with the spearheading agencies, including London Police and the London Laurel Rescue Squad, and Borden Dairy. In addition to the giveaway of 1,000 goody bags, 10 booster seats and five car seats were provided to children-in-need through Dreama Wright with CVADD.

The community partners hope to make the Brown Bag Giveaway an annual event to continue to uplift the community during the holiday season.
