The disagreement between Lexington’s city council and the city’s daily newspaper over the distribution of unsolicited publications could end up in court. 

 

Representatives of the Lexington Herald-Leader went before a council committee Tuesday looking for an exemption from a pending ordinance.

Fifteen jobs at the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper will be cut. Four of the positions are currently vacant, and the paper reports that the cuts are necessary to overcome year after year of negative revenue. The jobs cuts will be in various departments, including advertising, news and operations. Some of the employees were offered voluntary severance options. Others were not.
