City Council Recap - Jan. 11 Meeting

Here is a short recap of from the Jan. 11 Lebanon City Council meeting:
• Mayor Jared Carr opened the meeting with a moment of silence in honor of Lebanon Police Officer Kendle Blackburn.
• City Administrator Michael Schumacher presented council with a plan to begin a coordinated effort to make improvements in a focus area of Ward 4. The 2020 Customer Satisfaction Survey identified this area as one receiving a lower satisfaction rating among citizens. The focus area includes the following streets: Brice, Weaver, Sloan, Lee, Cornelison, South Krudwig, Walser, Crestline, Donnalee, Laclede, Benage, South King, McGinnis, Allen, Adams, Curry, Bennett, Miller, Hood, Sweet and portions of North Madison and Seventh.
What does this mean for you?
If you live in this area you can soon expect city staff to begin reaching out to you to see how we can assist in improving your neighborhood. The police department will begin extra patrols in this neighborhood, the fire department will make sure homes have installed smoke detectors, the street department will make repairs, dangerous structures will be demolished, and code enforcement will be increased. We expect to hold community cleanup days soon and dumpsters will be provided on designated days for resident’s use.  More information will be provided as the plans for the focus area solidifies. 
• Council approved the final plats of Martins Subdivision, Harvest Subdivision and Lots 1-3, Block 5 of Lewis Subdivision. 
• Council approved Bills 6012 and 6013 for the purchase of 15 kV reclosers and wire for the electric department which will help improve the electric system. 
• Council approved Council Bill 6014 accepting a grant from the State of Missouri Division of Tourism for promotion of tourism related activities in the community. 
What does this mean for you?
This will provide tourism with more than $8,663 to invest in marking and promotion for Lebanon and Laclede County. Increased marketing will help bring visitors to Lebanon and indirectly bring investment into our community.
