  • Bike Path

    Jessamine County Middle School Cheerleaders say:

    Whether you are East or West, Keeping storm drains clean is always best!
    In cities, rain and snow fall on streets, sidewalks and parking lots where it can't be absorbed. Storm drains along streets and in parking areas give the runoff a place to flow, which helps prevent flooding. But the water picks up contaminates from trash, motor oil and other debris and carries it into our local streams. That's why it's important to properly dispose of yard waste, trash, oil and grease and why storm drains are just for rain. For more information, Click here.

  • Hydrant Flushing

    Spring Water Main Flushing

    The City of Nicholasville's Water Department will be conducting a routine water main flushing program April 5th thru April 9th 2021. The main flushing program is conducted in the Spring and Fall to clean the distribution system of any sedimentation, which may have built up in the mains. Some residents may experience a slight discoloration of water and/or a short period of low water pressure. The Water Department reassures customers that the water is safe to drink. Customers should allow their water to run a few minutes to clear up any discoloration, which may occur. It is not advisable to wash clothes while the water is discolored because of the possibility of staining. The water main flushing is part of the City of Nicholasville's program to provide its customers with the best possible water service. If you have any questions, please call (859) 885-1121.

Mayor Pete SutherlandMessage from the Mayor

As mayor, I have the privilege of being involved in community developments from the time they are just a seed of an idea all the way to the finish line. This has been such an exciting and positive year that it is hard to capture it in words.
Our downtown is really starting to bustle again. New businesses have opened on Main Street and existing ones are seeing increased activity. Events such as the upcoming St. Nich Christmas Fest on Saturday, Dec. 12, and art walks are drawing large crowds.
