Lexington held a City Council meeting Tuesday evening and the main topic of discussion was the Heartland Museum of Military vehicles. The city passed a motion to move the military museum into city limits. Among the reasons behind the decision is to transition their utilities from Dawson Public Power to city’s services. City Manager Joe Pepplitsch says another reason is because it belongs in the community.
Another decision was made at the meeting, the purchase of property north of Lexington. There are no plans for 104 acres of land right now, but Pepplitsch said the city likes to keep their options open. The agreed upon purchase was $530,000 and it will be financed through Home Federal Bank of Lexington at 2.89% interest rate for 10 years.
The City Council voted to recommend approval of a manager’s application for a liquor license at the Wal-Mart Supercenter.
