The Lebanon City Council met in a special session Wednesday, just a day following its regular meeting.

With councilors Kathy Warmath and Joe Hayes absent, the council voted unanimously to approve all nine items up for discussion.

All ordinances were in second and final reading.

Items passed at the meeting included:

• line-item transfers for the Street Department.

• a line-item transfer of $20,000 for the state street aid fund to buy street lights.

• a line-item transfer of $21,731 to cover the remainder of Johnson Control’s work to make the Jimmy Floyd Center more energy efficient.

• line-item transfer of $17,280 to cover the remainder of Johnson Control’s work for other areas in the city.

• buying Fisher Brand regulators, valves and reliefs on an as-needed basis for the Gas Department.

• line-item transfers from the Police Department to the Building Maintenance Department regarding an employee who formerly split time between the two departments and now works solely at City Hall.

• bids for a state industrial access roadway to serve the new Starbucks distribution center. The contract was awarded to Hoover, Inc., which was the low bidder, at $861,770.

• engineering services for the civil engineering inspection required by the Tennessee Department of Transportation on the state industrial access roadway to Starbucks. The service costs were $72,125. 

• buying an updated security system for the Police Department at a cost of $14,818, which was paid out of the department’s drug fund.

The council will meet Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
