First BOC of 2016 in LouisvilleKY a big success
A big crowd turned out, despite overblown fears of snow, to hear Theresa Reno-Weber speak at this morning’s Breakfast of Champions event at the University Club at U of L.
Reno-Weber, a recent guest on the Rusty Satellite Show, gave an inspiring and informative talk about the city’s efforts to do things better, and challenged the audience of about 60 to find ways to contribute time and talent to improve the world around us.
Reno-Weber, Chief of Performance and Technology for Metro Louisville, spoke of how the use of data had helped the Public Works department dramatically reduce its accident rate. She showed how the Department of Permits and Inspections has used mapping technology to get more inspections done. She discussed a city program that created a way to place smoke alarms in vacant houses to reduce the number of fires in the city.
Those were just a few examples of how she’s helping city departments do their jobs more efficiently. Reno-Weber, who earned degrees at the Coast Guard and Harvard and also worked at a consulting firm, brings an amazing amount of experience to Louisville. She’s been on Greg Fischer’s staff for four years.
The next Breakfast of Champions will be March 8. The event is organized by Dick Wilson, Katie Gaughan, Ken Grossman, Jeff Peden, Bill Rothballer and Rick Redding.
