Council Corner with President Lampke

Categories: ,

Hello Bexley!  I’m Monique Lampke, President of your Bexley City Council.  I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself to you if we’ve not met before, and to share some helpful information with you about Bexley City Council.  I am the proud mom of two amazing daughters and have lived in Bexley since 2000.  I am a former litigation attorney and legal educator and love legal writing, including drafting legislation.  I also enjoy volleyball, walking my rescue dog, and am Duran Duran’s biggest fan.  

2024 Council Calendar:

Did you know that Bexley City Council generally meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month (excluding July) at 6:00 pm at City Hall?  Our meetings are listed on the Bexley Community Calendar. During each Friday prior to a Council Meeting, we list the proposed legislation that Council is considering for each upcoming meeting in the City’s Bexley Blast.  If you are not already subscribed to the Bexley Blast, please sign up here.  You can also visit bexley.org for meeting agendas.  

How To Contact City Councilmembers:

Residents are always welcome to attend any council meetings in person (or virtually by visiting the City of Bexley’s channel on You Tube).  Public comments are also welcome at each council meeting and you can fill out a speaker’s slip at City Hall at the beginning of each meeting,if required.  If there is an issue that is important to you and you’d like to share your input with council, you are free to email councilmembers or chat with us when you see us out and about in the community.  Here is a list of email addresses for your councilmembers:

Lori Ann Feibel – lfeibel@bexley.org

Danny Hurley – dhurley@bexley.org

Monique Lampke- mlampke@bexley.org

Sam Marcellino – smarcellino@bexley.org

Troy  Markham – tmarkham@bexley.org

At varied times during the year, Council also hosts Office Hours throughout Bexley so please keep an eye out for Council Office Hours as listed in the Bexley Blast.

How Many Readings of Legislation Does Council Typically Do?

Bexley City Council is unique in the sense that we typically read and consider a single piece of legislation during at least 3 separate meetings (each time is considered one reading) with the occasional exception.    This allows City Council to thoughtfully consider the wording and ramifications of each piece of legislation over the course of usually at least 6 weeks, in addition to considering resident input.  Many other local governments do only 1 or 2 readings of proposed legislation but doing 3 readings on average gives us a greater amount of time to carefully weigh proposed legislation.

Please keep an eye out for future Council Corner spotlights.  It is an honor to serve you!

Monique Lampke
