With the Lebanon City Council on the brink of receiving updated plans to present a resolution to the state legislature to allow an arena to be built and managed by largely government-managed board, Wilson County’s legislative delegation isn’t too fond of the plan as they understand it.

Mayor Philip Craighead said last week he plans to recommend the council approve a resolution Tuesday that would create a series of proposed law changes to allow the Cumberland Center arena be built and overseen by a board of directors made up largely of city and county government officials or their appointments.

On Monday, the three members of Wilson County’s legislative delegation each expressed concerns about the proposed plan.
