The City of Lebanon expands its corporate boundaries to include areas by annexing property. In most cases, annexations are initiated by the property owner. The property owner submits their request to the Planning Commission and Mayor requesting annexation in order to receive city services.
The Planning Commission considers the request and makes a recommendation to the City Council regarding the annexation. Annexations are done by ordinance, requiring two readings. In conjunction with the second reading by the City Council, a public hearing is held. A Plan of Services for the area considered for annexation is considered, as a resolution, in conjunction with the second reading of the annexation ordinance.
