  • 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.

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.
