The Lebanon City Council approved the second reading of three property annexations Monday evening.
The properties are located at 985 Bradfordsville Highway, 915 Bradfordsville Highway, and in the right of way on Hwy. 49 on the city's northern boundary.
The annexations will take effect upon official publication.
In other business:
- The council authorized Mayor Gary Crenshaw to sign an application for a community development block grant to assist Plastic Products Company regarding possible expansion and equipment leasing.
- The council discussed language in a lease agreement with the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission regarding property recently acquired near Maker's Mark Distillery.
The city owns the property, but the tourist commission provided $24,000 of the $34,500 to buy the land.
The commission wanted to revise the lease agreement to read that it could promote events in Lebanon and the surrounding areas. The commissioners pointed out during their own meeting Monday that this would allow them from promoting events like Kentucky Jets or attractions like the Gorley Trail.
The city council was concerned this would allow too many things to be promoted at the site. After some discussion, the council voted in favor of language suggested by City Attorney Kandice Engle-Gray to allow promotion of activities inside the city limits, on property owned by the city and tourism-approved events in surrounding areas. The proposal will now go back to the commission for consideration.
