City sells park


The Lebanon City Council approved the sale of Nelson Park to White River Marine Group for $2.5 million at a special meeting Tuesday night.
The company plans to expand its tracker Marine operations in Lebanon.
In a separate, but related contract, the company has agreed to purchase 20 acres located directly adjacent to the middle school for $600,000. The City of Lebanon and the Lebanon R-III School District have reached a tentative agreement for a shared-use park facility which will occupy the purchased land as well as land owned by the school district, according to an announcement from the city.
The vote was 7-0 with Councllman Bob Garner not present.
“This will be a shared-use facility between the Lebanon R-III School District and our residents,” said Lebanon Mayor Jared Carr in a city press release.
