County council changes time of meeting

Lebanon — One of  two evening meetings planned this year by the Boone County Council will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“It’s just an effort to allow people to see what business we do,” Council President Steve Jacob said. “We want to have two, but we only set one date.”

The session will be in the Connie Lamar Meeting Room in the Boone County Annex, 116 W. Washington St., Lebanon.

Traditionally, the council meets at 8:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. For many, however, that time conflicts with work.

A new procedure, allowing public comment on what are called “additionals” — requests from elected officials and department heads to spend more than was budgeted — will be launched at Tuesday’s meeting, Jacob said.

The council had discussed options for comment during their April meeting, when consideration of additionals was deferred because of a legal issue.

Jacob said the public will be heard after an official or department head presents the request, and explains the reasoning for it, before the council votes. “I believe that meets the letter of the law and the intent of the law,” he said.
