The Downtown Business District has received a commitment from the City of Lebanon of $15-thousand dollars and asked the County to put in some money as well.

The District is funded in part through a business fee which is paid by the businesses who operate in the district. The District also announced to the Commissioners that they have received an anonymous donation of $675-thousand over the next three years, but that can’t be used to pay salaries.
