Spring has finally arrived in Taylor Mill, city projects are moving forward, and we are gearing up for some exciting events.
I would first like to take a moment to thank our CAO Jill Cain Bailey for 23 years of service to the City of Taylor Mill. Jill has accepted a new position as CAO of the City of Ft. Wright. Jill's work ethic, integrity, and dedication have played an essential role in the progress of our city. She is an outstanding person and city administrator, and she will be missed. We wish Jill the best of luck in her new position.
The city held a special meeting on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the appointment of an Interim CAO and the process of hiring a permanent replacement.
2018 Legislative Session Update:
Assembly voted to override
Governor Bevin's veto of House Bill 362 and the city's contributions to the CERS pension system will be capped at 12 percent a year. The phase-in saves the city around $271,322.00 in 2018. Many thanks to Taylor Mill Sen. Chris McDaniel for introducing the bill, and Sen. Damon Thayer, Rep. Kim Moser and the Kentucky League of Cities for working to help our cities, school districts, and local agencies manage the impact of the increase. The phase-in will help the City of Taylor Mill maintain our high-quality city services and keep a balanced budget.
Some relief at the gas pump is coming to Northern Kentucky with
the removal of the Reformulated Gasoline Provision by the EPA
. According to local legislators, we could see local gas prices decrease as much as 15 cents per gallon. And with the the passage of SB 88, the state is now prohibited from placing unfunded mandates on Kentucky cities.
