Keep Lebanon clean and green by taking part in our Earth Day clean up and Adopt-A-Road programs from now through April 27.
Our mild winter finally gave us some action in March, but we hope spring is finally around the corner. Thank you to our Public Works crew for their work keeping our roads clear and safe.
This month, Lebanon will celebrate Earth Day (or perhaps we should call it “Earth Month”) with our annual town-wide cleanup program. Residents can pick up special Earth Day trash bags which can be left on the roadside and set for pick up by Public Works by calling the Town Hall. They can also be brought directly to the Transfer Station at no charge. Lebanon will celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 27. Please contact the Selectmen’s Office for more details.
It’s hard to believe but April means that Memorial Day is just one month away. This year’s Memorial Day parade will be held on Saturday, May 25 at 10:00 AM. Following the parade, we will also present the award for Citizen of the Year. Nominations are currently open. Please download the nomination form on the Town website or pick one up in the Selectmen’s Office.
Lebanon’s Charter Commission is continuing to hold meetings as they develop a new charter proposal. These commission meetings are open to the public and are held in Town Hall at 7:00 PM on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Your participation is needed and encouraged!
This month the Board of Finance will be reviewing budgets as recommended by Town departments for the next fiscal year. Budget meetings are open to the public and residents are encouraged to attend. The annual Town Meeting on the budget will be held Monday, May 6 at 7:30 PM in the auditorium of Lyman Memorial High School.
On Friday, March 15, 2019 the Honorable Judge Calmar awarded the Town ownership of the three municipal properties on the Lebanon Green. This is the news we have been waiting on for some time. The Library Building Committee will begin their work in earnest to bring to fruition the project that the residents approved in May 2015. On behalf of the Board of Selectman, who spent hundreds of hours on this project, we thank you for your patience.
