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.
  • Boone County Community Clinic Open for Extended Hours - The clinic is now open for extended hours from 5pm until 8pm Monday thru Thursday, and from 8am until noon on Saturdays. These after-hours times are reserved for first-come, first-serve walk-in appointments, and are open to all Boone County residents, insured and uninsured alike. The Clinic is able to bill with several local insurances, and if you are uninsured, appointments start at only $50.
