Mayor Diane E. Whalen
As the Mayor of the second largest city in Northern Kentucky and one of the fastest-growing communities in the state, I am proud of all we have to offer our residents! As a residential community we have much to offer to our citizens. We can partake of the fast-paced excitement offered by our big city neighbor, while enjoying the relaxed lifestyle of the Kentucky countryside. City services including water and sewer, street lighting, snow removal and fully staffed police and Fire/EMS departments are there to make your home safe and comfortable, or your visits relaxed.
