Tree Branches and Power Lines are Down in Bexley


Please Use Caution When Treating a Fallen Tree or Power Line!

City crews will be out all day and into the evening removing and disposing of fallen City trees and branches. We have representatives coming to Bexley from the National Weather Service to assess the situation and figure out what kind of storm passed through this morning - whether it be a tornado or a straight-line windstorm. If you need assistance determining if a fallen tree is a private or City tree, please call our Service Department - (614) 559-4220. 

If you know it's a private tree that fell, we recommend calling a professional arborist to help remove the tree. Please be aware of any fallen power lines that may be hidden by leaves! If you find a power line down near your property, please contact AEP immediately. Their Customer Solutions Center ‭number is (800) 672-2231‬.

Notice: Mosquito Spraying Scheduled for Tonight, Sept. 20th

Scheduled to Start at 8:30 pm Tonight

We apologize for the short notice, but we received word yesterday morning that a mosquito trap in Bexley tested positive for the mosquito species which is a carrier of the West Nile Virus. We want to be proactive in our efforts to protect our community and get the spraying completed before this weekend, which will happen tonight at 8:30 pm. 

The Franklin County Public Health Department will be honoring the same households and properties which opted out of the last spraying for tonight's spraying, too. This treatment is scheduled for the evening, after bee and other insect populations are no longer active or vulnerable, and when the mosquitoes that are West Nile Virus carriers are most active. Note that this treatment will not impact all mosquito species which are active in Bexley, so residents should continue to be vigilant about removing sources of standing water, etc. to discourage mosquito population growth.

Please Note: The chemicals used in this spraying are Permethrin and Piperonyl Butoxide. When sprayed correctly at the recommended pounds per acre, it is not toxic. The FCPHD will be spraying at .0035 lbs/acre - which is incredibly low.
