City welcomes Community Services coordinator

The citizens of Lebanon will now see court-ordered community service workers at work in the community picking up trash, pulling weeds, and other functions which will help make Lebanon look its best.

The City has hired J.T. Taylor as the City's first Community Services coordinator. Taylor is tasked with supervising individuals ordered to complete community service in the City of Lebanon and organizing their work.

"Community services workers can perform a variety of needed tasks in our community," Taylor said.

"For the City of Lebanon, they may clean up City parks, the Cowan Civic Center and other city facilities, as well as facilitate neighborhood clean-ups," Taylor said.

Through this program, Taylor is also able to help assist area service-oriented agencies such, area shelters and other not-for-profit organizations.

"This program will benefit the City in many ways," Taylor said.

The Community Services Program works in conjunction with Outreach Consulting and Counseling Services to support the City municipal court system with providing community service opportunities for offenders.

Taylor has spent most of his adult life working in public service; from military service and law enforcement; from fire service to code enforcement and animal control. He is also a training instructor, who teaches several public safety, code enforcement and animal-control related training programs throughout the country.

"I enjoy the challenges of developing municipal government programs and serving the communities in which I work and live," he added.
