Bell joins planning commission

Lebanon City Council recognized this appointment at their Tuesday night meeting. Mayor Philip Craighead told Bell, who was in attendance, that the council was glad to have you aboard.

Bell joked that gearing up for this new role may take a good deal of studying.

As a professor, my students complain when I assign them a lengthy book. The other night Paul Corder (city planning director) gave me the thickest book I have ever seen, he said.
