I wish to commend Carmela Hennessy for her commitment to excellence in code and zoning administration for the City of Lebanon and to congratulate her on her last day at work as she retires.
For more than 36 years, Carmela has been an outstanding employee of the City of Lebanon, and has provided its citizens with unfailingly fair and equitable administration of its codes and zoning ordinances. Her dedication to excellence has helped Lebanon retain its integrity throughout the development of significant projects involving land use.
Over the decades, Carmela has reviewed literally tens of thousands of building permits and applications, and could be counted on to give each one her full commitment to balancing the needs of the applicant with the best interests of the City. Since 1988, when she took on the role of zoning administrator, she has helped guide homeowners through the Zoning Board process, while also shepherding the development of major projects that will live on in Lebanon for many years to come. She is, in short, irreplaceable, and her direct contributions to the City will be felt for generations.
It is my honor to recognize Carmela and thank her for her unparalleled work for the City of Lebanon this twenty-eighth day of February, in the year two-thousand and fourteen.

Lebanon City Manager
