Concerns about school-building ability
The new Lebanon High School would not have been built without a major tax hike, if a law recently passed by the Tennessee legislature had been in force at the time, according to County Finance Officer Aaron Maynard.

The effect of the law was a topic of serious concern at Monday night's (Oct. 20) Wilson County Commission meeting, since it requires "level debt payments" for all funds that Tennessee counties borrow, Maynard told the commissioners.
