         Burn Ban        

Just a reminder that Open Burning is banned during the months of May, June, July, August, and September.  Open burning will be allowed starting October 1st, with a permit issued in advance by the Fire Department.  Permits are available from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm.  There is no charge for the permit.  No treated woods, plastics, household garbage, tires, or chemical products are allowed.  Burning must be more than 50 feet from any structure and attended continuously.

The City of Taylor Mill is excited to announce that the Kenton County School District began renovations to Scott High School recently in an effort to expand, modernize, and make the school more functional to the many students enrolled now and who will be enrolled within the future.  We appreciate their interest in continuing to make Scott a great place to education our future generations.
As school renovations begin and KY 16 Reconstruction continues please expect traffic delays at various times along Old Taylor Mill Road, portions of existing Taylor Mill Road, and various side streets.  We also ask that you exercise caution while traveling throughout the community and be on the look out for lane changes, detours, dips in the roadways, etc as construction continues to take place over the next 18 to 24 months.  I know many of you are anxious to see the completion of the new KY 16 (Pride Parkway) as the various phases of the project near completion we will keep you posted.  Right now, we anticipate Phase 1 of the new roadway, aka 1-275 to Blackstone Court, will be nearing completion by mid July 2013.  Right now the entire project should be completed by early Spring 2015.  Hang in there!
Anyone who is looking to relocate to Taylor Mill can look at new construction opportunities in the Sunrise Meadows Subdivision on Morning Glory Court.  Brookstone Builders of Cincinnati has acquired several lots and are in the process of building a new model home.  The homes will start in the range of $180,000.00.  It's a great time to relocate to Taylor Mill!    
For more information about upcoming news and events keep reading our newsletter, connect with us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter @taylormill_city.  Please also feel free to contact your locally elected officials or our City Administrator Jill Bailey at 859.581.3234.  Thank you.

Police Department News
Taylor Mill Police Department Awarded Grant
The Taylor Mill Police Department through the efforts of Officer Mills has successfully authored another traffic enforcement grant.  As a result of his work the TMPD will be awarded $10,500 to be utilized for traffic patrols.  Specifically, this grant will place more Officers out on the street thereby notching up TMPD visibility, allowing us to increase seat belt enforcement, and the identification of aggressive/impaired driving.  This grant will also provide our staff the ability to provide extra street patrols at no extra expense to tax payers.  These grants are a true win-win for Taylor Mill residents and business owners.  We would like to thank Officer Mills for his work and a job well done! 
In other police related news:
The Taylor Mill Police Department will be co-hosting the June 14th Friday Night Flick at Pride Park.  In addition to the featured presentation, The Lorax, families can enjoy interacting with officers and see up close our equipment and vehicles.  Join us for this great opportunity to see the Kenton County SWAT Van and their equipment, as well as, have your child's photo made in either our Police Hummer or one of our Police Cruisers.  Members of our Explorer's Program and our Neighborhood Assistance Team (NEAT) will also be on hand to help manage traffic, assist with security, and promote their various volunteer activities.  The staff of the PD will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have about police services or the police department.  The event, along with grilled concessions, will begin at 7:00 pm.  Movie starts at dusk!
