City Council Recap - June 28 Meeting

Here is a brief recap of highlights from the June 28 regular City Council meeting:
☑️ Council approved Bill No. 6093 authorizing the Tourism department to accept an award of nearly $70,000 from the Missouri Division of Tourism for Fiscal Year 22 for promoting Lebanon to outside areas. The grant award is a 75/25-match grant.
What does this mean for our community?
Lebanon and Laclede County will be promoted to outside areas an in effort to bring tourism-related dollars back to Laclede County and essentially boost investment into our local economy. 
☑️ Council approved Bill 6094 authorizing the purchase of new tables and chairs for community buildings.
What does this mean to the community?
Community buildings, including the Cowan Civic Center, Wallace Building, and Mills Center, will have new tables and chairs for community members to use while making use of these facilities. Many of the current chairs and tables are more than 30 years old and many are in disrepair. This purchase came in more than $25,000 under budget. 
☑️ Council approved Bill No. 6098 authorizing the purchase of two cardiac monitors for the Lebanon Fire Department.
What does this mean for the community?
When responding to medical calls, the fire department will be better equipped to assist in these emergencies and provide needed care for our residents. 
☑️ Council approved Bill No. 6102 authorizing a Change Order for construction at the Skatepark at Gasconade Park.
What does this mean?
Basically, the current state of the economy has caused the cost of materials to rise. The contractor that was awarded the bid for the skate park has had a large rise in material cost and had to raise the cost of the project to begin construction. Despite the increase in cost, the project still comes in under budget and construction is still scheduled. 
☑️ In other business, council approved first and second reads on several re-zoning projects, and first reads on the rezoning of the 1500 Block of Beck Lane and property adjacent to the Floyd Jones Airport on Jefferson.
