Route 66 or Elm Street?

A Laclede County man has hired an attorney as part of his continuing attempt to change the name of Elm Street back to Route 66.
Howard Fuller, who has repeatedly appeared at many Lebanon City Council meetings over the past year to state his case,  says the change is required by a state law passed by the legislature in 1999. The city’s attorney has said he disagreed with Fuller’s interpretation and the city was not breaking the law.
A press release from the city said it had been notified “of the intent to take legal action” on the issue.
Lebanon Communication Manager Derek Gean said a lawsuit has not been filed, but, “We received notice from Kirksey law firm that the client had instructed them to file a lawsuit.”
Fuller’s attorney, Jay Kirksey of Bolivar, said Monday that no notification of any specific legal action had been made.
