Thank You, Bexley Community Foundation!

In 5 short years, the Bexley Community Foundation has awarded over $615,000 worth of grants to benefit the Bexley community by supporting community events, economic development, recreational activities, beautification, lifelong learning, and more.  This week, in celebration of their fifth anniversary, the Foundation has placed signs at projects they have helped fund throughout the City.  Keep an eye out for the blue signs - a tangible reminder of how much the Community Foundation has done to make Bexley "simply the best"! Thank you Bexley Community Foundation!

Recap from the City Hall "Thank You" Event

This past Tuesday, we held a "thank you" event to acknowledge and thank all of those who helped us create and get settled into our new City Hall space.  Thanks to Andrew Rosenthal and GRA+D architecture and design, Palmetto Construction, Continental Development, the Bexley Community Improvement Corporation, Dupler Office, Columbus Sign and Designpath, MKSK, E.P. Ferris, Kegler Brown Hill + Ritter, Kayne Law Group, Vorys, and the Bexley Community Foundation for the phenomenal support and expertise throughout this process.  And a special huge "thank you" to the Bexley City employees who sorted through 60 years of accumulation at our former City Hall, who prepped the former Bexley Monk space for our contractors, and who endured a complex and drawn out relocation process - you all are simply the best and we could not have done this without you!  At our event we also dedicated and named the Community Foundation supported David H. Madison Community Conference Room - the "Madison Room" - right in the same corner of space that was formerly occupied by the "Madison Room" at the Bexley Monk.  Thank you Bexley!

Announcing BexALERT Active Notification System

The City of Bexley is pleased to announce the launch of the City’s BexALERT Active Notification System, which is being launched in partnership with a county-wide mass notification and warning system, ALERT Franklin County.

Bexley residents are now able to opt-in to receive critical information in real time via text message, phone (home, cell or business) and email. Residents can opt in to receive timely alerts from Franklin County Emergency Management System, as well as messages targeted from the City of Bexley for Bexley residents.

“We’ve been exploring mass notification systems for several years, and about a year or two ago became active with Franklin County’s effort to create a County-wide system that would also allow individual cities such as Bexley to provide information specific to our resident base,” said Bexley Mayor and Safety Director Ben Kessler. “The BexALERT/ALERT Franklin County partnership allows us to tailor messages to residents based upon what they want to be notified about, and by cooperating with a regional product like this we see substantial cost savings and ultimately end up with a better product.”
