City Council Recap - Oct. 5 meeting

Here are some highlights from the Oct. 5 Lebanon City Council meeting:

  • Mayor Jared Carr proclaimed now through Oct. 16 as a “Season of Caring” in the City of Lebanon as the Lebanon Area Foundation conducts their annual Community Cares Fundraiser.  This annual fundraiser provides an opportunity for residents to donate to several nonprofit organizations in Lebanon and Laclede County. Donations can be dropped off at the Lebanon City Hall Drive-Thru or at most area banks. 

  • Council approved Resolution 460 supporting a development project of the O’Reilly Company of Springfield to construct affordable senior housing at the corner of Tower Road and Glencastle Lane.

What does this mean for you? 

This means council stands in full support of a development that will contain 32 units and help provide seniors 55 and older with affordable housing. Council also approved the rezoning of the property to make construction possible. Construction is expected to begin soon. 


  • Council approved Bill No. 5052 authorizing the Electric Department to purchase a 2020 Forestry Truck from Altec Electric.

What does this mean for you?

 The Electric Department will be able to provide more reliable service by having needed equipment to support the city tree trimming operations. A 2002 forestry truck currently in operation will be surplused.


  • Council passed Bill 5053 authorizing the city to utilize purchasing card and electronic payment services from Arvest Bank.

What does this mean for you?

The city recently sought proposals from local banks to find the most beneficial financial services to be the best stewards of public dollars. Five proposals were received, and Arvest Bank was the selected choice. The City will receive a 1% rebate on every transaction, including payments, which will help maximize tax payer dollars.


  • Council Passed Bill 5054 and 5055 authorizing maintenance service agreement for the bleacher in the Cowan Civic Center Exhibition Hall and an agreement with City and Mid America Concrete Surfacing for the grinding, polishing and sealing of concrete at the Mills Center and CCC.

What does this mean for you?

Following Civic Center and Mills Center renovations, facility customers can expect fully operational bleachers and refurbished, easier to maintain flooring. These upgrades are necessary to keep our facilities in tip-top shape.

  • Council passed Bill No. 5056 authorizing a land lease agreement between the city and BNSF Railway Company for a parking area behind the Allen Building.

What does this mean for you?

This lease agreement is a necessary step to clear the way for redevelopment of the Allen Building. Developers plan on converting the Allen Building (old H.D. Lee Plant) into high-quality housing in downtown Lebanon. Acquiring the land adjacent to the railroad and developing a parking area are necessary steps in making development a reality.

  • Council approved Bill 5057 authorizing the purchase of sewer line camera software for the Wastewater Department.

What does this mean for you?

 The Wastewater Department crew members will have the needed updated, software to better care for and maintain our sewer lines and help provide quality sanitation services to our customers.
