LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – Recent growth in Lebanon has city leaders calling for a special census five years earlier than planned.

Typically, a federal census is done every ten years. Due to the rise in residents and permits, Mayor Philip Craighead said it’s needed to help with state money and to help recruit businesses.

Figures in 2010 show a population of 26,190. Leaders think a recent spike could put the city over 30,000.

Complete details about the special campaign will be released in coming weeks.
