What will the opinion on Heard be? Anderson says the information he presents in a closed session tonight will 'put to rest' discussion about the city administrator

From LDR Staff

Lebanon’s mayor remains mum about what the legal opinion is on a motion not to renew the contract of City Administrator Chris Heard, but that silence is expected to be broken tonight.

In a response to an email sent by The Daily Record late last week to inquire about the legal opinion of Springfield attorney Ransom Ellis, Lebanon Mayor Lyle Anderson said the Heard’s contract would be discussed in a closed session, which is set for 6 p.m. tonight, prior to the 7 p.m. start of the council’s regular meeting.

“I have nothing further to report, but will report in full Monday night when the ramifications of (Ward 1 Councilman Randy) Sutter’s motion and the legal assessment of it are discussed further,” Anderson wrote. “We will be in closed session Monday evening when we will discuss a legal matter and (Heard’s) contract. It is my full intention that the Chris matter will be put to rest for many months following Monday’s meeting.”
