Fred Anthony Burton Sr. has announced his candidacy for re-election to the Lebanon City Council for Ward 2.
Aug. 18 at noon was the deadline for candidates to file their petitions for the Nov. 8 General Election.
Ward 2 City Council Member Fred Burton said he was quite pleased with council's vote on an ordinance to reduce utility costs in the city of Lebanon.
Despite severe winter weather which kept two councilors from attending the Lebanon City Council meeting Tuesday evening, the remaining four who were present voted unanimously to approve all the items on the agenda, including the first reading of an ordinance "dropped in" to the agenda to approve sidewalk repairs on the northwest corner of the square.
Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead said he felt like he had been "ambushed" at City Council Tuesday night.
Ward 1 Councilor Lanny Jewell and Ward 6 Councilor Kathy Warmath questioned the mayor's handling of the purchase of approximately 38.5 acres on Carver Lane and the acquisition of an added .4 acres that the landowners wanted to donate to the city.
A Lebanon City councilor wants to explain the action he took at the Feb. 18 meeting regarding an ordinance that would establish a community development fund to capture the city’s portion of sales and property taxes generated within the 257-acre Cumberland Development District and keep it in a savings fund.
