Times have been tough lately, for EVERYONE. A new non-profit organization has formed just for the Lexington Community. The Lexington Relief Foundation was formed to help alleviate financial stress for those down on their luck. Our mission statement is: "to give relief to as many Lexingotn residents in need, as possible, especially elderly, children, veterans, and families in despair; and to maintain a high standard of ethics, credibility, stability, and reliability as an organization."

Late in summer there will start to be designed locations throughout our city where you will be able to grab an application for yourself or a family you know of. Applications will be received and reviewed. Applicants may be eligiable to receive up to $200 (based on the situation and the availability of funds a higher donation may be given) to help with overdue bills, to buy food, put toward a medical bill, etc.  There will be an initial limit of 2 approved applications per year per resident. You are welcome to fill out an application for those who you know will struggle asking for help. It may not take care of all of your worries, but we hope it will relieve a little bit of stress in your lives. Applications initially will be available at the Lexington Schools, the Lexington Food Bank, or you can email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Look for an upcoming article on informatin about our very first fundraiser.  We will be having a charity walk to raise funds. It will be held at the Keller Park trail on June 16th. It's an event where you can help your very own community. All money donated will stay in Lexington for our residents in need.

Feel free to email the Lexington Relief Foundation at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   if you have any questions or would like to make a donation. The Lexington Relief Foundation is in the process of receiving its 501C (3) status.  All donations will be tax deductible. We will also be looking for volunteers for this and other upcoming fundraisers, so please email if you are interested in helping out your community.

Lexington's New Population!. . . PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Tuesday, 16 November 2010 15:24

You may have read in the Pantagraph that the recent census indicates that the City of Lexington has grown 7.7% since the year 2000.  In preliminary data, the City is reported as having a population of 2,060, which is an increase of 148 people.
This has a positive impact on City revenue. State Income Tax, State Use Tax and Motor Fuel Tax revenue is shared with the City on a per-person basis.  The addition of 148 people will result in more than $17,000 of new revenue.
To put this in perspective, the City's entire property tax levy is about $158,000.  The new funds, which should begin arriving within the next few months, will represent almost 11% of our entire property tax levy.  The increased revenue is like a $20.00 property tax increase on a $100,000.00 house.  It would seem obvious that modest residential growth is important in helping the City keep taxes in check.  This is why it is so important for every resident to take the time to complete these surveys every ten years - thanks for your participation!

DOOR-TO-DOOR SALES PDF Print E-mail
Written by City of Lexington   
Tuesday, 13 March 2012 13:35

With good weather, door-to-door sales people come to town more frequently. The City has policies and procedures which regulate this activity for the safety and peace-of-mind of residents.

The full policy can be found on the City’s website under Local Government. Search for Chapter 140 – Peddling and Soliciting.

A brief description of that policy is included here.

 

City policy on door-to-door solicitors:

 

The City of Lexington requires registration of ANYONE/GROUP going door-to-door to sell goods of any kind or services, insurance, subscriptions, or seeking monetary or other valuable contributions, etc. Registration must be completed at City Hall prior to solicitation. Notice of this requirement is posted on signs at all the entrances to the City. Solicitors MAY NOT solicit before 9am or after sundown Monday through Saturday, or at any time on Sunday or a State or National holiday.

Registration by the City does not endorse any service or product. Solicitors are given a fluorescent green registration label that has been given an expiration date. Residents should always ask to see this registration. If none can be produced, or if the solicitor fails to leave when asked, notify the City (365-3331) during business hours, or call 309-888-5030 to report the solicitor to the Lexington Police Dept.

Residents may also call at any time that a solicitor makes them uneasy or behaves questionably.

Lexington Municipal Code Now Online! PDF Print E-mail

On June 14th the Lexington City Council passed Ordinance 2010-4 adopting the recodified City code.  To "codify" means to arrange and systematize.  Codification is the collection and organization of all our ordinances of general and permanent nature into a numbered and stylized document that is easy-to-read and easy-to-access.  Codifying also includes legal review and revision of City ordinances to correct conflicts and inconsistencies.  We have effectively arranged general and administration codes, zoning and building codes and subdivision construction codes into one file.  Special thanks to the all City Council members who spent several hours reviewing the City code and to Hank Brill for serving as Chairman of the project.

Our completed code will be a useful resource for everyone in the community as well as for prospective residents and prospective commercial and residential developers.  It is now published in an easy-to-use, expandable format designed to accommodate future legislation.  The Lexington Code can be found on the Local Government page of our web site and is accessed by clicking on the "Lexington Code" navigation button.  A printed copy will be placed at the Lexington Public Library and is available for viewing at City Hall.

John Mohr
Mayor
