From the Desk of Mayor Daniel L. Bell
April/May 2015
City of Taylor Mill
I hope everyone is enjoying the nicer weather that we have been blessed with over the past few weeks.  It has been a great time to get out and enjoy all of Pride Park's amenities, in addition to, the completed portions of the new sidewalks and bike paths along Pride Parkway.  We are already seeing residents using the sidewalks as a means of traveling to and from the Districts of Taylor Mill and Pride Park and we couldn't be happier about that.  The City Commission as a whole is excited about the opportunities sidewalks and bike paths will bring to our citizens, business owners, and community overall.
As you may know, we have been overhauling the City's website and it is already a significant improvement over our previous site.  However, we still have lots of work to do on it.  We are continually adding additional information and applicable updates to the site in an effort to provide you with more and more information about the operations of your local government.  In the future you'll see annual audit reports, ordinances, property tax information and much much more.  In the meantime though we want to provide you with all the information and assistance you need.  If you visit our website at and don't find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact our Administration Department for assistance at 859.581.3234.  Our staff is happy to help you.
This Spring and Summer brings back the very popular Tasty Tuesday and Sweet Treats Events at Pride Park.  Join us for delicious menu items from Marco's Pizza, East Coast Eatz, Marty's Waffles, Kona Ice, Texas Joe's Tex Mex, Cold Stone Creamery, Mr. Softee, the Moose Lodge, Sugar Snap, Skyline Chili, and Renegade Street Eats.  All these fun times will lead to Fall and Park Fest, which will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015.  Mark your calendars and join us on that day for lots of family fun and lively music from the Rusty Griswolds!  You can get updates about  all of these events and more by following us on Facebook, Twitter and subscribing to our electronic News & Event email service by clicking here.
I look forward to seeing each of you at our upcoming events.  In the meantime though please contact us if we can be of further assistance to you by emailing to or contacting us directly at 859.581.3234.  


Daniel L. Bell, Mayor
City of Taylor Mill
Taylor Mill Police Department

Governor Steve Beshear signed Kentucky's new "Heroin Bill" into law on March 25, 2015.  The bill contained "Emergency Clause" language meaning it became law immediately upon the bill's signing.  The Heroin Bill is forty one pages long and addresses numerous heroin related issues.  The following information about the bill only attempts to address that portion of the bill that effects law enforcement officers engaged in the regular course of police business.  If you would like to read more about the bill in it's entirety and it's passage please click here.
An important component of the bill provides for Law Enforcement Officers, Paramedics, EMT's, Firefighters, Jailers, and School Employees who have complied with the necessary training requirements be allowed to now carry Naloxene (Narcan) in an effort to assist in life saving efforts for Heroin overdoses.  The KY Board of Pharmacy has been tasked with developing regulations, procedures, and training to govern the issuance of Naloxone to First Responders.  The KY Department of Health is tasked to do the same for school employees.  When this section of the bill will actually be implemented will be determined by the Board of Pharmacy.
Once the training program is available members of the Taylor Mill Police Department will be trained to administer this life saving drug.  In addition to training each Taylor Mill Police Cruiser will be equipped with Naloxone/Narcon Kits.  This is beneficial as more often than not, the first responder to arrive on scene of reported incidents of overdoses is a Police Officer.  Please note - Taylor Mill Paramedics are already using Narcan when necessary.   

Safety Tips from our Fire Dept

Smoke Alarms are a key part of a home fire escape plan.  When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast.  Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.
Here are a few fire safety tips -
*Install Smoke Alarms inside and outside each bedroom and sleeping area.  Install alarms on every level of the home, including the basement.
*Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.  It is best to use interconnected smoke alarms so that when one smoke alarm sounds, they all sound.
*Test all Smoke Alarms at least once a month by pressing the button to be sure the alarm is working.
*There are 2 types of smoke detectors.  Ionization Smoke Alarms are quicker to warn about flaming fires.  Photoelectric alarms are quicker to warn about smoldering fires.  It is best to use both types of alarms in your home.
*Smoke Alarms should be on the ceiling or high on a wall.
*Keep Smoke Alarms away from the kitchen to reduce false alarms.  Generally, at least 10 feet from a stove.
*Individuals who are hard of hearing or deaf can use special alarms that have strobe lights and bed shaker activations.
*Replace all Smoke Alarms that are 10 years of age or older.
