Council considers utilities board

City says talks with Laclede Electric over a proposed utilities sale ‘did not prove to be a feasible option’


The Lebanon City Council will consider forming a board to operate the city’s utilities.

The Board of Public Works is allowed under state statutes and would be made up of four members serving four-year terms. The proposal is set for a first reading at Monday’s City Council meeting.

Speaking at Thursday night’s Lebanon City Council work session, Attorney Terry Jarrett of Healy Law Office said his firm had been retained to write the city’s public works board ordinance.

Jarrett said the Board of Public Works would handle ongoing utilities issues, freeing up the City Council to handle other issues.
