Lebanon city council postpones decision on Patrick's job status

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        LEBANON — City Council will take up embattled City Manager James Patrick's job status at next Tuesday's regular meeting, Councilman James Reinhard promised Tuesday.

        Mr. Reinhard said he has asked that tabled legislation to fire Mr. Patrick be placed on next week's agenda.

        Council did not discuss Mr. Patrick, who is under indictment on four felony charges related to retirement payouts, at an open session of Tuesday's special meeting.

        They also did not reach a decision on appropriating money to buy a historic house at 27 N. Mechanic St., after two council members excused themselves from the vote.

        Councilwoman Amy Brewer attacked Councilwoman Jane Davenport for avoiding “making the tough decisions.”

        But Mrs. Davenport said her husband's ownership of another property on the street gave her a conflict of interest.

        The rest of council voted 4-1 to buy the historic building, but it must be voted on a second time.
