Lebanon City Council Meets

On Monday night, Lebanon City Council approved a resolution accepting the results of last week’s election approving the parks and stormwater management sales tax. The tax passed with 70 percent of the vote, and Lebanon Mayor Jared Carr stated once again that he appreciates the citizen’s support…


The new tax, which will replace the park levy on personal property and real estate, will take effect in January. In other business, Council considered a bill which will allow the Electric Department to replenish stock. Electric Department Supervisor Travis Long recommended Harry Cooper supply at the cost of $78-hundred-dollars.

While Harry Cooper was not the lowest bid, they did have the best lead time to get the stock to the city. Council also considered approving the necessary paperwork for the mill and overlay of Commercial from Jefferson to Jackson. The work also includes colored thermoplastic at crosswalks at Madison, Monroe, and Jackson. The bill was approved at a cost not to exceed $250-thousand-dollars. Council also approved a traffic impact study at certain intersections at a cost not to exceed $29-hundred-dollars by CJW Transportation Consultants. Council also approved materials for water line improvements on Nelson Court at the cost of $10-thousand-243, which was the bid of Ferguson Waterworks, and they approved a change order in the amount of $25-thousand at the wastewater treatment plant project.
