Milburn steps down from board after nearly 3 decades

Boone County — A new seat opened up this year on the Lebanon Utilities board after 28 years of being occupied by one man.

Allen Milburn came onto the board in 1984 as an appointment by then-mayor Ann Garaffolo, and he was reappointed every four years by the three following mayors from both sides of the political fence — Jim Acton, John Lasley and current Lebanon Mayor Huck Lewis.

“I felt good about that,” he said. “I feel grateful the leaders of the community had confidence in me, but 28 years is an incredible amount of time. It’s time for others to have the opportunity I had.”

Milburn left his seat on Nov. 30. Lewis asked him to stay on again, but Milburn turned him down.
