City reaffirms funds for street projects


Also Monday, at the Lebanon Board of Works meeting, Lebanon Police Asst. Chief Dave Scott said the department mailed out 21 letters last week to new applicants. The applicants will have to take a written test and go through a physical agility test, and then LPD will have a new applicant pool. The department’s two newest hires, Justin Knox and Austin Scott, were sworn in July 3.

Lebanon Fire Chief Jason Lee said the Fourth of July was not as busy as last year — thankfully — due to the cooler weather. The department made just a few rescue runs throughout the week, he said. LFD’s newest hire, Matt Young, completed his first shift on July 4. Lewis thanked Lee for how the department handled the parade accident where 14-year-old Cameron Wilson was run over by a float.

Lebanon Parks Director John Messenger also thanked the department heads for all their help during the Fourth festivities. Three LPD officers were on duty at Lebanon Memorial Park at all times, he said, and that helped out a lot. No incidents were reported. Messenger also asked residents interested in a perennial flower swap to take photos of their perennials now, while they are in bloom. In the fall, he plans to hold a swap where people can exchange flowers.

“Hopefully that will work out, and the parks could even get a few extra perennials for our beds,” he said.
