City council approves workers contract
The Lebanon City Council approved a three-year contract with the AFSCME Ohio Council 8, Local 363 at Tuesday’s meeting.
The contract shifts 12 full-time staffers in the streets, parks and cemetery and fleet maintenance divisions. The contract shifts the workers to a six-step grid like those used for police and electric department employees in the city. To equalize pay rates, six of 12 employees are to receive one-time pay hikes beyond the 2.5 percent raises granted in 2015. The contract replaces one that expired at the end of 2014.
Also Tuesday, the council amended the zoning code to include a public institutional zone and approved application to the Ohio Public Works Commission for funding for resurfacing the section of the Ohi0 48 Bypass from Turtlecreek-Union Road to Main Street in 2017.
The council also approved a series of agreements with JT Packaging Inc. TO assist the company in obtaining financing for its facilities at 1550 Kingsview Ave. in the city’s commerce park.
Also at the meeting, City Manager Pat Clements said the city hall parking lot would be closed for repaving from today through May 30.
