Lebanon City Council Meets

During Monday night’s Lebanon City Council meeting, a public hearing was held on multiple requests for replating property. Code Administrator Joe Berkich addressed the Council on the requests. The first was for the replat of property in Lexington Square to correct stormwater easements. Another request was in the Oakhills Addition on a lot located on Adams behind Breaktime and Dollar General.


The lot is City-owned property, and according to City Administrator Mike Schumacher, in the future, there will be an ordinance coming to the City Council transferring ownership to the school district for a building trades house. Council also approved the final plat of Showme Plaza; Berkich reported that the property owner has three lots and would like to turn it into one lot to build four plexs. They also approved the replat of a lot in the Dogwood Hills subdivision, where the owner wants to cut the lot in half to create an accessory structure. Council heard a request on the final plat of a portion of the Railroad Subdivision at 4th and Jefferson, which Infuze Credit Union is developing.

Council approved the request made by Infuze Credit Union. In other business, the Council approved the purchase of 2 cardiac monitors for the Fire Department; the monitors and ancillary products was a total of just over $45-thousand-dollars, which is about 50 percent off the total price. Fire Chief Sam Schneider said the company is giving the City a 50 percent discount for the old monitors. In other business, Lebanon City Council approved the purchase of 6 handheld radios for the Fire Department, which will ensure that the incoming firefighters will be outfitted with a radio. The approved cost was just over $30-thousand-dollars.

Council approved the first reading amending the Subdivision ordinance, which currently contains set work hours for contractors from 7 am to 7 pm. The requested change to the ordinance will allow that if there is a heat advisory they can begin work at 6am.
