[ARCHIVED] City Council Recap - Aug. 22nd Regular Meeting

Graphic for City Council Recap

Here is a brief recap of major actions taken by the Lebanon City Council at the Aug. 22 regular meeting: 

✅ Council passed Bill No. 6347 authorizing the purchase of LED lights for Ball Fields No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 at Atchley Park.

How will this improve the park: Currently Atchley Park is equipped with lights that are well past their years of service. These new LED lights will be more energy efficient, and provide better and more direct lighting for the ball fields. The current lights will be repurposed for Lebanon soccer fields. 

✅ Council passed Bill No. 6348 authorizing the purchase of snowplows for the street department.

How will this benefit the community?

Snowplows will help improve snow removal during the winter season. Snow removal was listed as a high priority for residents in the last citizen satisfaction survey. 

✅ Council approved Bill No. 6356 authorizing a lease agreement between Ice Cream Factory and the City of Lebanon for Lots 2, 3 and 5 adjacent to Ice Cream Factory on Ice Cream Way.

How does this benefit the community?

When Ice Cream Factory opens in 2023, it is expected to become a large attraction for locals as well as visitors. This lease will allow the City to create a greenspace with a shelter near the factory for residents and guests to enjoy. 

✅ Council approved bills No. 6448 and 6349 authorizing the purchase of materials for stormwater improvements, curbs, and sidewalks on Ice Cream Way (formerly Kansas Street).

How will this benefit the community?

As officials expect increased traffic in the Ice Cream Factory area, these improvements will help mitigate storm water issues and create an environment more conducive to the increased traffic and visitors. 

✅ Council approved Bill No. 6351 authorizing the asphalt and concrete improvements at the Lebanon Wastewater Treatment Plant.

How does this benefit the community?

The Wastewater Treatment Plant recently underwent and upgrade to increase efficiency and capacity. This improvement is part of the last stages of the project and will improve paved areas at the plant. 

As stated above, this is just a summary of major actions taken at the Lebanon City Council meeting. The complete agenda is available at:
