SafetyTown/Registration

 


Safety Town is a safety education program designed to teach safety to kindergarten age children, through the use of tricycles, street signs, and automatic traffic lights.  This program includes activities such as stories, safety songs, games, and art projects.  At the conclusion of the program, the children will receive certificates of completion. 

Every child attending Safety Town should be well prepared to care for themselves as a pedestrian during the first exciting year of school.  A special program will be presented to the parents at the end of the program.  Otherwise, the parents are requested not to stay at Safety Town with their children. Only children who have not had previous Safety Town training and are in the Lexington School system are eligible to attend.  Each parent must provide transportation for their child.

The Safety Town Program will be held from June 13, 2016 through June 23, 2016 at Western Elementary in Lexington.  Class times run Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 11:00am. Safety Town is headed by Ptl. Andy Little, in his 5th year as Director, and Jennifer Brant as Coordinator. Due to scheduling conflicts, this year's class days will be handled by Captain Troy Weaver, the former director.  Questions and comments can be directed to alittle@lexingtonohio.us, tweaver@lexingtonohio.us, or jbrant829@gmail.com

Mosquito Control (Zika)

 


 

2018 MOSQUITO SPRAYING 

June 5th & 26th

 

July 10th & 24th           

 

August 14th & 27th

 

September 11th & 25th

 

These dates are dependent upon the need to spray if the threshold of the mosquito population warrants it.

Wednesdays and Thursdays are backup days to the dates above in the event of inclement weather.


Mosquito Control as a Community

 

In the last few years we have been subject to many new diseases spread by mosquitoes, such as West Nile, Chickungunya, and now the Zika virus. As a part of this wonderful community, we all need to step up and do our part.  Our spraying program kills most adult mosquitoes, but is there is no guarantee that all will be eliminated.  The greatest measure we can utilize is not giving them places to breed.  Most of the mosquitoes that spread these diseases lay their eggs in dirty standing water in places like tires, bird baths, buckets, puddles and gutters.  Keeping gutters clean, dumping any buckets, and filling in those areas where water accumulates for long periods of time is key to our success at stopping the spread of mosquitoes and disease.  Stay informed and inform your neighbors as well.  The Village also treats additional areas such as catch basins, retention ponds, and as much of the low lying swamp areas that we can access. If there are locations with standing water that you believe we have not treated, please contact Village Hall and provide that information.  Those areas will be addressed as needed.

Mission

 


The mission of the Lexington Street Department is to maintain the Village’s highways, streets, alleys and storm drainage systems so that they are consistently safe and continue to function to meet the transportation needs of Village residents and visitors.

The Street Department utilizes a pavement management system to monitor current pavement conditions, project future maintenance and resurfacing needs, and to prepare cost estimates for this work.  Most of the pavements in the Village’s street system are less than ten years old and the overall rating of our street system is very good.

Duties of the Street Department also include many non-pavement related tasks such as pavement markings and sign maintenance, roadside mowing, yard waste collection in the spring and leaf collection in the fall.  During winter months, a great deal of time is devoted to snow and ice removal operations.

Maintenance of an extensive system of storm drains and catch basins, open drainage channels and stormwater detention facilities also require considerable time and effort.  The Street Department is in the early stages of developing an accurate system map of our storm sewer system to comply with future EPA requirements for storm water discharge permits.

The Street Department is also responsible for maintenance of all public sidewalks and also provides sidewalk replacement for individual property owners on an assessment basis when orders have been issued by the Village for repair of those walks.

The Street Department is considerate of environmental impacts in all of their projects.  Brush collected from Spring Clean Up is used for mulch for use by the Village departments and also for sale to the public at a very reasonable charge.  Leaves that are collected in the fall are applied to local farmland to be plowed under to enhance the soil or piled and composted by local farmers.

The use of salt and other de-icing materials is monitored closely so that the minimal amount of material needed to accomplish the task is applied.  Stockpiles of salt are stored under roof at the Village garage so that the salt is not allowed to leak into the soil or run-off to cause stream degradation.  Streets are swept several times each year to minimize the amount of solids and other debris that are washed off our streets and find their way to local streams and rivers via our storm sewer system.

2018 Leaf Collection

 


The Village of Lexington will begin our annual leaf collection on October 8, 2018 and continue through November 21, 2018. Please keep all leaves on the tree lawn and not in the roadway. Just a reminder, grass, limbs, and other debris will not be removed.

Mission

 


Our mission is to provide all residents of the Village and the greater Lexington community with a wide range of recreational opportunities at facilities that are well maintained and safe for all users.

The Village of Lexington is very proud of the extensive park and recreation facilities available to our residents.  Lexington currently has over 60 acres of parkland including the Lexington Community Park on Plymouth Street, Patriot Park also located on Plymouth Street,  Bicentennial Park on Lex-Ontario Road and Davidson Park on Cedarwood Drive.  These parks include facilities for baseball and softball for both youth and adults, soccer fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, playground structures, picnic facilities including shelters and pavilions, sand volleyball courts, a fitness trail and an ice skating rink for winter use.  All of these facilities are well maintained and all receive extensive use.  In 2000, the Village purchased another 47 acres of land that is now being planned for development as a new park.  This park will include athletic fields for soccer as well as picnic facilities, a walking trail and possibly a skate park.  The Parks Department has a staff of three full-time employees and is supplemented with 2-3 seasonal employees during the summer months.  The department is well equipped and well trained in building and facilities maintenance, turf management and athletic field maintenance.

In addition to maintaining our park facilities, the Parks, Building and Grounds Department is also responsible for maintenance of other public buildings and properties including the Lexington Municipal Building, the Depot Senior/Civic Center and the East Main Street streetscape project in the business district at the eastern entrance to the Village.  The Parks, Buildings and Grounds Department also provides technical assistance to the Lexington Tree Commission and assists with many tree planting and maintenance activities.
