Important Announcements

  • Clean City Initiative - The Cleanest City in Indiana, a local group working to stop litter in Lebanon, is planning a new program to help eliminate trash in the city. The committee would like input on determining which areas in Lebanon have the most litter. The feedback will help the group prioritize clean up efforts. Visit http://svy.mk/1igdnHi by February 15, 2014 to complete the short survey and tell what areas of town need the most attention.
