Commissioners decline Relay For Life request

Concerned they would set a precedent, the Boone County Commissioners Monday opted to not vote on a request from the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Lebanon to advertise its June 21-22 event by painting windows of the county office annex in downtown Lebanon.

“It’s a great cause,” Commissioner Marc Applegate said. “I just wonder, if you do this, are you going to have to start painting windows for other things?”

The commissioners, who are responsible for the maintenance and operation of all county-owned property, have allowed what County Attorney Bob Clutter called “limited access” to county buildings by not-for-profit groups.

“I just have a problem with them painting our window,” Applegate said, a stance echoed by Commissioner Donnie Lawson.
