Dallas Taylor and Charles Martin, from the LFUCG Division of Water Quality holding a map showing the route our sewage goes until it reaches the treatment plant. The Division of Water Quality provides citizens of Lexington-Fayette County with wastewater treatment and stormwater management services. The city’s sanitary sewer system includes 81 pump stations, over 1400 miles of sewer pipe, and two large wastewater treatment plants (Town Branch and West Hickman).
Effluent flows from pump station number two at the intersection of Bahama and Winchester Road all the way to the highest point of the subdivision in front of the club. At that point gravity takes over and effluent flows through several neighborhoods until it reaches the Town Branch Treatment Plant. The plant is off Old Frankfort Pike inside the circle.

First out of lingering concern for the safety of our residents, the April GB Business meeting will be cancelled. Instead, included with the new Directory that will be distributed to every homeowner this month, will be our quarterly newsletter. The newsletter will contain information normally announced at the meeting – including details of our budget, upcoming projects, and result of our annual Dues appeal.
Second, if you or someone you know is having trouble obtaining an appointment for the Covid vaccine, please let a Board member know. We can put you in touch with a neighbor who is able to connect any resident having trouble getting the vaccine with the right agency.

GRI Members! Due to Covid-19, the approval of next year’s budget and election of GRI Officers will not be held at an in-person Business meeting. A ballot will be taped to every home in Greenbrier; however:

2) only a GRI member in good standing ($100 annual dues paid) for vote to be recorded
3) offer “yes” or write-in a candidate for your voting choice
4) fill in your name and address and sign
A ballot box will be placed at 2018 Bahama Road (The Urschels) from 9am to dark on Oct. 25 & 26 for your ballot to be dropped off.
According to our Bylaws, the response of one tenth (1/10) of GRI members in person or by proxy is necessary for action. All current Board Members are up for re-election; a space is provided for write-in candidates.
