Lexington mayor wants to use $2 million from surplus for Jobs Fund program

Lexington is coming out of the recession faster than many cities, but its unemployment rate of 6.1 percent in August is still too high for Mayor Jim Gray. "It's still double what it was six years ago," Gray told the Urban County Council last week during a council meeting on economic development. In October 2007, Lexington's unemployment rate was 3.7 percent.
