City Council


The City Council stands as the elected governing body of the City of Lebanon, entrusted with enacting legislation and establishing citywide policies to ensure the effective administration of our community.

Representing the diverse interests and perspectives of our city, each of the four wards elects two aldermen to serve staggered two-year terms. These dedicated individuals work diligently to address the needs and concerns of their respective wards, advocating for the well-being and progress of their constituents. In addition, the Mayor, who is elected at large, serves a four-year term and provides leadership and guidance to the City Council.

If you are unsure about the specific Ward in which you reside, we encourage you to consult the current ward map available for reference. Alternatively, you can reach out to the Office of the City Clerk at (417) 991-2360 for personalized assistance.

The City Council, composed of elected representatives, aims to foster an inclusive and participatory governance structure that reflects the voice of our community. We invite all residents to engage with their elected officials, express their concerns, and contribute to the shaping of our city's future. Together, we can work towards building a prosperous and harmonious community for all.


Transparency and public participation lie at the core of the City Council's operations. We strive to maintain an open and inclusive environment, ensuring that all meetings or special sessions of the City Council are posted and accessible to the public, unless otherwise specified by law.

Council business meetings, where important matters are deliberated and decisions are made, take place on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. These meetings commence at 6 p.m. and are held in the Stanley H. Allen Council Chambers. We encourage community members to attend these meetings, as they provide valuable opportunities to witness and engage in the democratic process.

To facilitate in-depth discussions and collaborative planning, Council work sessions are held on the 1st Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Stanley H. Allen Council Chambers. These sessions offer a platform for the Council to delve into various topics, exchange ideas, and explore potential strategies for the city's development.

By adhering to a regular schedule and conducting meetings in a dedicated space, we prioritize accessibility and invite the public to actively participate in shaping the future of our community. 

We encourage all residents to mark these important dates in their calendars and join us in the Stanley H. Allen Council Chambers for Council business meetings and work sessions. Together, we can foster a collaborative and engaged community that embraces the principles of transparency, accountability, and citizen involvement.
