Lexington's New Population!. . . PDF Print E-mail

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!

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
