City Council Recap - Oct. 13 meeting

Here some highlights from the Oct. 13 regular Lebanon City Council Meeting:


• Council held a public hearing about the establishment of the Elm Street Corridor Community Improvement District.


What does this mean?
The public had the opportunity to weigh in on the creation of a Community Improvement District comprised of 31.68 acres on the west end of Elm. The developers have plans to renovate the area around the Historic Route 66 Inn, develop a strip mall similar to Lexington Square and more. Council is expected to consider the creation of the CID at an upcoming meeting.


• Council approved Bill No. 5058 authorizing the electric department to purchase a 4-Drum Cable Puller Trailer.


What does this mean for you?
Better electric service. This new equipment will help utility workers perform cable-pulling work four times faster, increasing efficiency and helping make repairs and improvements in a more timely manner. 


• Council approved Bill No. 5060 surplusing a 2010 Skid Steer Loader and authorizing the purchase of a 2021 Skid Steer Loader from Bobcat Company for the street department. 


What does this mean for our community?
The 2010 Skid Steer Loader has met the end of its useful working life. This new Skid Steer Loader will provide our street department team with the equipment they need to continue maintaining and improving our streets. 


• Council approved Bill No. 5061 authorizing the replacement of HVAC Units for City Hall and the EMS facility Mercy leases from the city. 


What does this mean for the community?
As indicated in our 2018 Citizen Survey, customers want the maintenance and improvement of city facilities to be a priority. This purchase will provide for the replacement of current HVAC units that are more than 20 years old. The units were damaged during the May 4 storm and an insurance settlement will cover the city hall units. 


• Council approved Bill No. 5062 authorizing city staff to surplus property, supplies, material, and equipment no longer in use. These items can be auctioned, scrapped, or donated. 


What does this mean for you?
The city will be disposing of items taking up unnecessary space. Many of the items will be auctioned off online in the coming weeks. The public will be able to participate in this auction at purplewave.com. 


• Council approved Bill No. 5063 continuing a mutual aid agreement between the Lebanon Fire Department and the Fort Leonard Wood Fire Department.


What does this mean to the community?
When Lebanon Fire Department is facing an emergency and needs additional assistance, the Fort Leonard Wood Fire Department will be willing to help and the Lebanon Fire Department will also aid Fort Leonard Wood if needed. 


• Council approved Bill No. 5056 providing for the lease purchase of a Biosolids Application Truck, Dump Truck, Combination Cleaning Truck, and Excavator for the wastewater department and a Dump Truck for the street department.


What does this mean to the community? 
Public Works will be replacing equipment that has reached the end of life with excessive usage or it needs costly repairs. This will provide the street and wastewater department team members with the needed equipment to provide our customers with quality service.
