Lebanon City Council took the first step at Tuesday night’s regular meeting to allow utility customers to make payments with credit cards.

An ordinance presented by Commissioner of Finance Robert Springer to approve bids for credit card payments services was passed on its first reading. Current City of Lebanon Gas and Water customers only have the option of paying by check or cash.

Councilors also approved a series of ordinances including:

  • Bids for electrical material for the garage at Public Works.

  • Authorize the acceptance of partial payments for property taxes on second reading (three readings are required).

  • Bids for surveying equipment for the Stormwater Department.

  • Appropriate funds for the repair of the railroad crossing on West Main Street.

  • Change a portion of unaddressed property at the corner of South Hartmann Drive and Hickory Ridge Road from agricultural to B-4/highway business.

  • Authorize a line item transfer for the Sewer Plant.

  • Purchase tow CNG 2WD Ford pickup trucks for the Gas Department.

  • Authorize a line item transfer for the Sanitation and Street Departments.

Council will have a special called meeting at 5 p.m., Thursday, April 17, in the Town Meeting Hall, to approve a number of ordinances on second reading.

Council will also have a special called meeting to discuss the 2014-2015 Fiscal Year Budget at 5 p.m., Thursday, May 1, at City Hall. This meeting will include employee compensation actions, finance department budget, update on back mixed drink taxes and a final quote and selection on health insurance.
