LEBANON, Pa. — The Lebanon City Council met Monday to review a virtually empty agenda before the Mayor presented a free version of the State of the City Address.
During the Pre-council meeting on Thursday, Mayor Sherry Capello gave a general update on projects to the City Council.
The Mayor’s update included:
The City had a Pre-Construction meeting for the streetscape project with the engineers (Steckbeck Engineering) and the contractor. Mayor Capello said that this project is estimated to cost $4.4 Million and that the project is slated to start in May.
Mayor Capello said that the City has also awarded the Lehman Street paving bid to New Enterprise.
The City will also be awarding bids for upcoming street paving on 12th Street between Cumberland north to the bridge, which is north of gilbert street, Maple Street from 9th Street east to the city line, 7th Street line south to Elm Street, Washington Street between 11th and 12th Streets, Oak Street from 12th Street west to the city line, 16th Street from Federal street South to oak, Chestnut street between 16th Street to the Trico Building, the parking lanes on Oak and South 8th Street at the court house, and south Lincoln Ave between walnut and Cumberland Street.
