Bexley Offering Assistance for Federal Employees Impacted by the Government Shutdown

The City of Bexley is providing assistance to Bexley resident employees of the federal government impacted by the current government shutdown.  We will provide deferred payment options on Bexley utility bills, including water, sewer, and refuse bills.  Please call Janet Mercurio at the Bexley Water Department at (614) 559-4270 to arrange assistance.  If there is any other way we can help, please let us know by calling the Mayor's office at (614) 559-4210.


Post Office Survey

The City of Bexley, in participation with Bexley's rep for the USPS Advisory Council, has put together a post office survey intended to provide residents living in the 43209 zip code with an opportunity to evaluate their experience with postal service delivery. The results of this baseline survey will be shared with management of the US Postal Service (USPS) and posted on the City of Bexley website. Our aim is to work with the USPS in continuously improving their services to the residents of Bexley and our neighboring communities. Follow-up surveys may be conducted periodically to evaluate USPS’s progress. We anticipate an opportunity to bring Bexley residents together in 2019 to discuss these postal delivery issues with the USPS and other stakeholders as a part of the consumer advisory council's efforts.

Leaf Collection Update

Update for December 28th:

The third and final round is wrapping up today, and the City will continue to offer spot leaf pickup for the next week or two, provided the weather doesn't result in frozen leaf piles.  Residents who have piles that need pickup should call the Service Department at (614) 559-4220.  

Leaf Collection Guidelines:

  • Rake leaves to the back of the curb but not in the street.
  • Please keep leaves out of storm sewers and stream banks. Leaves can cause bacteria that depletes the oxygen and can kill fish and other stream organisms.
  • Leaves can also be collected during scheduled yard waste collection dates if they are placed in paper bags and marked “yard waste”.
