Environmental Quality & Public Works
To preserve, protect and enhance our Bluegrass environment; to provide public infrastructure systems that are safe, efficient and economical; and to promote a healthy and sustainable quality of life for our citizens.
Our division engages the public about environmental issues in our community. We work closely with Waste Management and Water Quality to support recycling and stormwater efforts in Lexington. We also manage sustainability initiatives and handle the beautification and maintenance of the city's green spaces and corridors.
Streets & Roads
Streets & Roads maintains all city and county roads, except those on the state and federal highway system.
Traffic Engineering is responsible for the maintenance and daily operation of the city's computerized traffic control system, including first-line response for emergency signal repair.
The Division of Waste Management is not just about getting rid of things, it's about Lexington's quality of life, its health, and the look of our community.
The Division of Water Quality provides citizens of Lexington-Fayette County with wastewater treatment and stormwater management services.
