City approves Hot Pond dredging

Lebanon — Lebanon’s Hot Pond will soon be dredged and cleaned out after the Lebanon City Council approved funds not to exceed $70,000 Monday to hire an excavator to come in and take care of the pond’s problems.

The council had been discussing the pond’s issues for the last month. Parks Director John Messenger brought up the problem in early June, telling the council that an average of 10 feet of silt had developed and settled on the bottom of the pond, making the water depth only one or two feet in places. A quote for dredging came in at more than $100,000, so Messenger presented an option where the city would do the work itself for roughly $50,000. The option was discussed in length, but the council was uneasy about asking city department heads to go above and beyond their regular duties and take this on.
