Effective immediately, the City of Lebanon will temporarily suspend utility shut-offs for non-payment as our community and nation work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Mayor Jared Carr made the directive Sunday after consultation with City staff. Quoting the mayor: “Our residents and businesses are facing a unique and unknown challenge,” Carr said. “Your city government is working hard to understand the possible impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and we want our customers to know we understand the potential hardship. We want to do our part to remove one possible area of concern for our customers.” The City of Lebanon offers payment plans for customers facing challenges. Call Lebanon City Hall at (417) 532-2156 for more information and give them a chance to help.
