Here is a brief recap of major actions taken at the Feb. 28, 2022, regular Lebanon City Council Meeting:
Council approved bills 6241 through 6244 accepting the replats of 254 Polk, 468 Polk, 711 Main, 791 Main, 786 Green and 2825 Charlton.
This process is used to clean up the zoning maps and make it possible for owners to construct new housing and in some cases add on accessory structures on standing lots. This type of action is routine, but it is also important to help address the need for affordable housing in the community. Every little bit helps in improving our housing stock.
Council approved bills 6245 and 6246 authorizing the purchase of hardware for the electric department?
Improving and maintaining the electric grid is an ongoing process. This is just part of the city’s regular purchases to make sure our electric department can improve the grid and have the supplies needed when repairs are necessary.
Council approved Bill 6248 authorizing Ozark Applicators LLC to complete water tower cleaning and inspection services for the next year.
Our water towers are vital to providing clean and safe water in our community. Inspecting and cleaning will help ensure that our towers are attractive and in good condition.
In other business, former fire captain John Hunter was awarded the Mayor’s Silver Leaf Award for Achievement in recognition of his service to the city. Hunter recently retired from the Lebanon Fire Department. Mayor Jared Carr also presented a check in the amount of $813 to Judy Kile, COPE executive director, for victims of domestic violence. The donation is raised annually through municipal court fees.
