From the Desk of Mayor Daniel L. Bell
November  2016
City of Taylor Mill

As we move into the month of November, I can't help but think of the Thanksgiving holiday we share with family and friends.  It is a beautiful time of year to make new memories, and to especially reflect upon family and give thanks for all that has been given to us.

As Mayor of Taylor Mill, I feel very thankful that I live in such a great community with such special people.  We have such a remarkable citizenry and it is filled with many who are always willing to help. We greatly appreciate their assistance and the dedication of their time and talents.  

As Mayor, I wanted to share with you just a few of the following things I am thankful in terms of the community in which we live:

  *I am thankful that our City is debt free and not burdened with short or long term debt.
*The creation and funding of our Advance Life Support Services by hiring and retaining professional paramedics on a 24/7 basis.
*That our police department is known as one of the best in Kentucky and that it is state and nationally accredited.
*The institution of the Senior Services Group "Taylored with Time", which provides a place for our seniors to meet and socialize.
*That the City was a recipient of State Funding for our new highway which provides better and safer travel for all.
*For residents and elected officials who had a vision for Pride Parkway, and that they met with highway officials relentlessly to create grassy mediums on the parkway giving it a greener and more rural community feel.
*That we successfully were able to work with the KY Transportation Cabinet to install and continue to plan for the installation of traffic signals on Pride Parkway, making safer intersections.
*The ability to provide pedestrian and vehicular lighting for Pride Parkway (coming soon) via budgeted and earmarking of funds that don't require the use of long term debt.
*A grant in the amount of $300,000 to provide additional sidewalks for Taylor Mill Road (to be completed in 2017) to connect more residents to our local businesses and community park.
*For all the businesses and individuals who choose to invest in our community making Taylor Mill a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
*For engaged citizens who willing participated in focus groups to assist planners in establishing the vision for the Districts of Taylor Mill Development Area.
*For social media such as Facebook &  Twitter, and technology such as our website, government cable programming and streaming which allows residents the opportunity to stay connected and provides us further opportunities for transparency in your local government.
*For the Vision to create a gateway plan for our business district in order to provide individuals utilizing a sense of place.
*For a master plan to re-develop and re-imagine Pride Park to include new amenities such as an amphitheater and new playground equipment.
These are just a few of the many things I'm thankful for as Mayor of this great community. 
In closing, I'd like to thank our many volunteers and dedicated citizens for all that you do.  We are truly blessed to be able to work with so many incredibly talented folks.
On behalf of myself, the staff and Commissioner Debby Kreimborg, Commissioner Ed Kuehn, Commissioner Dan Murray, and Commissioner Roger Reis we would like to wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday.
In the event you need any assistance please contact any of your local elected officials or City Administrator Jill Cain  Bailey at 859.581.3234 or
Warmest Regards, 

Daniel L. Bell, Mayor
City of Taylor Mill


For those of you who had an opportunity to visit the Vietnam Veterans Moving Wall when it was in Taylor Mill this summer I am confident you found the experience to be truly moving. 


Residents rallied to support this project and our desire to honor our veterans.  The number of volunteers for the project exceeded 180 individuals over the course of the 5 days the Wall was stationed at Pride Park.  We were truly honored to host this historic event and show our respect and allegiance to those who fought to protect our freedoms.   


A heartfelt thank you to all that were involved from far and near.


Also, a special thank you to Resident and Photographer Johnny Allf.  Please click here to see his photo gallery of many moving moments.
