Louisville Utility and Public Works Advisory Group

Mayor Greg Fischer named a seven-member advisory group to examine the future of the Metropolitan Sewer District.  The advisory group will review the operations of MSD, Louisville Water Company and Metro Public Works to determine synergies between the three to improve services and reduce costs.

The group’s members are:

  • Wendell Wright, retired from Qk4 engineering firm and the former Director of Jefferson County Public Works and former Chief of Operations for the Jefferson County Judge/Executive. He brings expertise in government, Public Works, the environment and development;
  • John Huber, past president of the Water Company, with expertise in utility management;
  • Pete Mahurin, senior vice president of The Mahurin Group and chairman of Hilliard Lyons, with expertise in finance;
  • Al Cornish, a citizen and representative of the city at large;
  • Joe Wise, business manager at Greater Louisville Building & Construction Trades Council, with expertise in labor issues;
  • Scott Brinkman, former State Representative and an attorney, with expertise in legal issues and governance; and
  • Diane Cornwell, founder of StarFish Consulting, with expertise in business and tax issues.

The task force — named the Louisville Utility and Public Works Advisory Group — will work with a national consultant with experience in utility management and operations. The review will include, among other things, identifying industry trends in other cities among water, wastewater and public works. The task force will also examine potential partnerships and a possible merger between MSD and Louisville Water.
