This morning a Bell Court Neighborhood Association Board Member contacted Streets & Roads, and they’re putting in a work order to plow our neighborhoods. To facilitate adequate snow removal and street clearing please move vehicles into driveways when possible.

Sewer rehabilitation is scheduled to begin on East Bell Court this Tuesday, March 3, 2015. Street parking is not permitted while work is underway. Neighbors should move any cars that are parked on the street before work commences on Tuesday morning. If there are any questions about this work please contact LEX-CALL at 859-425-2255.

Utility Work Updates

Electrical Line Removal

This work is weather dependent. Hopefully it will be completed by the end of this week. Utility workers are making a real effort to notify residents of any outages and minimize yard damage from the utility trucks. Workers report that the lines are quite charred from the fire last year.




Sewer Line Replacement

Electrical updates are under way on the second block of East Bell Court. A new transformer has been installed in front of the Smith home at 212 E Bell. Once the transformer is operational, old electrical lines will be taken down close to the intersection of East Bell Court and Russell Avenue. Removing these old lines with the damaged insulation should prevent the electrical problems incurred last year when the lines caught on fire.
