information for new residents
Hello! Mayor Ben Kessler here. Welcome to Bexley! I am glad you have chosen to make Bexley your new home, and while I’m obviously biased, I don’t think you could have chosen a better community in which to work, live, and play. On this page and throughout our website, you’ll find useful information to get you up and running and informed about the City of Bexley.
You will quickly learn that Bexley is a close-knit and accessible community. Your elected officials all work hard to be responsive and accessible, so if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (614) 559-4210.
To stay connected to what is going on in the community, sign up for the Bexley Blast at the bottom of this page, and don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook! Again, an enthusiastic and warm welcome to Bexley!

Each year approximately one-third of the city sidewalks are inspected running north to south. This allows the entire city to be inspected on a three-year rotation. Inspection involves walking each street and visually inspecting the sidewalk for damage.
Panels are marked either with an "X" denoting the deficiency is the responsibility of the property owner to repair or replace, or with a “C” denoting the deficiency is the responsibility of the city and will be replaced or repaired at the city's expense.

Bexley is full of animal lovers and has an active population of pet owners. However, Bexley law requires (Chapter 618 of Bexley City Code) that dog owners keep their dogs on leash at all times while walking. Also, dog owners are prohibited from allowing their dogs to run at large upon public property or on others' property. Please pick up after your dog while walking.

Note: No dogs, leashed or unleashed, are permitted at Bexley parks, including Jeffrey Mansion.
