Lexington Village Council held a meeting Monday night to discuss a handful of important issues. Most notably, Personnel of the Year awards were given to Christina Martin for Auxiliary Officer of the Year, Debra

Robinson for Dispatcher of the Year and Mike Beasley for Officer of the Year.

Council also read and adopted several ordinances; an ordinance prohibiting outdoor wood furnaces within the village of Lexington is in the planning stages. Mayor Parkison says there is not enough circulation in the area, the smoke would lay at a low and hazardous level. The ordinance should be adopted at the next meeting.

An ordinance prohibiting the use of E-Cigarettes within the village, including public places where the use of tobacco is not allowed was adopted and is currently in effect.

E-Cigarettes are not regulated by the FDA, and long-term effects of their use have not been reported.
