Editions of Monthly City Manager Report
Our City’s motto, “It’s Easier from Here” means that the City of Lebanon staff will serve the public with a level of professionalism, responsiveness and efficiency that will truly make our citizen’s life easier and more rewarding.
The City of Lebanon has the Council-Manager form of government. The City Manager is the Chief Executive Officer of the City and is responsible for carrying out the policies and priorities of the elected Mayor and City Councilors. The City Manager is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the Council. The Manager is responsible for the supervision of all city departments including appointment and removal of all personnel, enforcement of ordinances, and preparation of the annual budget and capital improvements program.
The City of Lebanon has a long history of welcoming new businesses and citizens. We actively promote quality, economic development and provide incentives to new or expanding manufacturing businesses.
In recent years the City has seen the opening of a 1.5 million square foot Lowe’s Regional Distribution Center, Pace American (cargo trailer manufacturer), and Laticrete (tile and grout manufacturer). These businesses have added nearly a thousand jobs to the local community. More recently, construction has begun on Oregon’s first medical college in over 100 years. The College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific will begin classes in the fall of 2010 and hopes ultimately to serve over 800 students.
While we are proud of our accomplishments to date, there is always room for improvement. We welcome your suggestions on how we can do things better and to alert us to problems or concerns that need the attention of the Lebanon City Government. Please feel free to contact me or any member of the City staff with any questions or comments.
