Lebanon to extend sewer to subdivision

LEBANON - City Council has approved extending sanitary sewer service to the Las Colinas de Lebanon development in Turtlecreek Township.

The subdivision comprises about 85 homes, Councilman Ben Cole said. When it was built a few years ago, the development wanted to be annexed into the city, but it was decided it would have been too difficult to provided police and fire service, Cole said. The property is near the city's utility service area, making it accessible for a connection. A proposed trunk line will be installed along Ohio 123 at a cost of about $300,000 to the developer and $14,000 to the city.

"It's proactive for the community and fiscally it's a good move," said Councilman Norm Dreyer.

The legislation was passed Tuesday evening with emergency language to allow construction to begin as soon as possible, Vice Mayor James Reinhard said.
