Lebanon — The city of Lebanon is in great shape and ready to move forward into 2013, Lebanon Mayor Huck Lewis shared at the joint Kiwanis-Rotary meeting Friday at Boone County Senior Services in the annual state of the city address.

Last year was a very busy one, Lewis revealed as he shared about many of the projects and plans that took place in 2012. The abandoned former Quality Inn was demolished, which, Lewis joked, he was sad to see go.

“We are so happy to have this eyesore finally gone,” he said. “We now have a viable piece of ground for development.”

Development was a very popular word in Lewis’ speech as he shared about several other potential and in-progress residential and commercial developments. Economic development, Lewis said, is his favorite subject.
