"Green Bexley" with Mayor Kessler & the ESAC

November 15 - 7:00 pm at Bexley Public Library

Did you know that we are one of two communities in Ohio to adopt a zero waste plan and the first in Ohio to tackle community-wide food waste recycling? Solar power, a food waste compost plan, electric vehicle infrastructure, and lowering use of plastics are just a few of the tools and incentives Bexley is developing in its robust vision for a sustainable community. You can also participate on a household level! Join Mayor Ben Kessler and members of the Environmental Sustainability Council to learn more about our plan and how you can be involved in the next phases of Sustainable Bexley.


Trick or Treat - Rain or Shine!

Wednesday, October 31 - 5:30 - 7:00 pm

We have received numerous calls asking if we can move Trick-or-Treat to a different night of the week. Unfortunately, Bexley’s Trick or Treat relies on special duty police officers and hundreds of Halloween patrol volunteers. We will only change the date if we are faced with dangerous weather conditions. For now, Trick or Treat will go on as scheduled, rain or shine!

Whether your costume is spooky, funny, or somewhere in-between - put those finishing details together! Trick or Treat in Bexley will be on Wednesday, October 31 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm. If you'd like to volunteer for Halloween Patrol, please send an email to Kevin Smith in the Recreation Department for more information on how to get involved.

Jeffrey Mansion Update

Jeffrey Mansion was gifted to the City of Bexley in 1941, and has functioned in many different ways over the 70+ preceding years during which it has served as a community facility.  Did you know that at one time the basement of the mansion was used by the Bexley Police Department as a practice firing range?  In its early years Jeffrey Mansion functioned much like an informal community clubhouse, where residents would meet casually to play games, gather, and build community.
