Lexington Police Report
The Lexington Police Department reminds everyone the water restrictions are still in effect. Due to the overload on our water pumps and low water pressure, the City is asking all water customers to continue with the schedule as follows:
The South side of town will be allowed to water outdoors on odd numbered days (1-31). The North side of town will be allowed to water outdoors only on even days (2-30).
Fifth Street will be the dividing line, which defines the south and the north sides of town. Car washing should be completed in accordance with the same guidelines.
This schedule has been in practice since May 10, 2008 and will be in effect until further notice. The Police Department will be monitoring the guidelines. Please water between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
