Lebanon City Council voted to change the name of Duke Court in the industrial subdivision near Gladeville to Leviton Drive, at the request of developer Duke Realty at Tuesday night’s regular meeting.
Leviton Manufacturing will occupy the building on the street. Officials from the company asked for the change to honor their now-deceased founder, Harold Leviton.
Councilors deferred action on a resolution to update the city’s travel policy. Ward 6 Councilor Kathy Warmath requested additional changes in the city’s travel policy to be made before city council votes on it.
Specifically, she asked that a statement be added that the city would not pay for any alcoholic beverages or for limousine transportation from airports to hotels. The new policy also sets specific amounts allowed for meals and sets limits for other travel expenses as well as requiring receipts for all money spent.
They approved on second reading an agreement that would allow Carroll Homes to complete the lighting and landscaping at Kensington Subdivision.
Council approved the new five-year lease agreement with Rediair for the Lebanon Municipal Airport. Rediair actually took over management of the airport about a month ago.
Kyle Busch will attempt to race in all three NASCAR divisions this weekend, including a stop at the Nashville Superspeedway Saturday night for the Federated Auto Parts 300 presented by Dollar General.
