City council meeting Wednesday to fill vacancy

By Stephen Lega

Kenny Marrett said that he has resigned from his seat on the Lebanon City Council effective noon Tuesday, July 26.

"I've got other passions that I want to pursue, and sometimes they don't coincide with my responsibilities as a council member," Marrett said.

He added he planned to continue his work on those other passions, including his work with the Lebanon Main Street Committee and the Marion County Jobs Consortium.

Lebanon Mayor Gary Crenshaw said he received an email from Marrett Monday evening announcing his intent to resign.

Marrett submitted a signed copy of his resignation letter Tuesday morning at city hall. To read the letter, see this week's copy of The Lebanon Enterprise, which will hit newsstands tonight, Tuesday, July 26.

Marrett has served on the city council twice. He was first elected in 1998 and served until December of 2002. He returned to the city council after being elected in 2008. He won re-election in 2010.

Council meeting Wednesday

The Lebanon City Council is scheduled to hold a special-called meeting at 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, at city hall to fill the vacancy created by Marrett's resignation.
