City Council Recap - April 26 Meeting

Here is a brief recap of highlights of the April 26 meeting of the Lebanon City Council:

✔️ Mayor Jared Carr officially recognized the recipients of the 2021 Mayor Lyle Anderson Gold Leaf Award for Volunteer Service. Laura Angst Gartin received the adult award and Dezaray Ward received the youth award. Learn more about these deserving recipients at

✔️ Council passed Bill 6063 authorizing the construction of a second restroom facility at The Market. 

What does this mean for the community?

The original plans for the Lebanon Farmers’ Market Pavilion included plans for a second restroom facility. The second restroom was cut from the plan to keep the project on budget. Last year’s renovation of the Cowan Civic Center came in under budget, so cost savings from the project made it possible to move forward with the second restroom at The Market. The project will make a great facility and even better one. Not only does the pavilion serve as home to the Lebanon Farmers’ Market but it also serves as a location for Food Truck Fridays, food at Christmas on Commercial and it is available for other community events. 

✔️ Council approved Bill No. 6066 which renews an agreement with Laclede Industries for Weed and Nuisance Abatement Services. 

What does this mean for the community?

This will allow Laclede Industries to take care of mowing, weed eating and the removal of solid waste debris from any private property that has been ordered for maintenance by Codes Administration officials. This will help keep properties maintained where the owners refuse to meet standards. 

✔️ Council approved Bill 6070 allowing the City to enter into a cooperative agreement with the already-approved Elm Street Corridor Community Improvement District. 

What does this mean?

A community development district is a defined area where business owners choose to implement a small tax to improve the area. This agreement will allow the city to hold and distribute funds for improvements in the district. This means that as funds are available, they will be distributed to make improvements to the Elm Street Corridor Improvement District. Tentative plans include removal of old structures, added business and office space, as well as increased and improved lodging options.  

✔️ Council approved Bill No. 6071 authorizing Lebanon to join the Show Me Pace Program.

What does this mean?

By passing this ordinance, developers of the coming Allen Building Lofts will have the option of taking advantage of state funding for clean-energy resources for the 51 loft apartments and 5,000 square feet of commercial space set to be added to the historic Allen Building. The project will bring new life to Downtown Lebanon Missouri with people able to live Downtown and take advantage of new business. 

✔️ In addition to the approved business, Mayor Jared Carr signed a proclamation recognizing May 2-8 as Local Government Week in the City of Lebanon and council appointed Curtis Mather and Fred Mayes to 3-year terms on the Airport Advisory Board and Marvin Stow II, Randy Haefner, Simon Westerfield, Marvin Basnett, Donna Mason and Andrew Barnett to positions of the Veterans Memorial Board.
