|Street Sweeping and Parking Meter Enforcement Begin on June 3|
Street sweeping will resume on June 3, 2020. The accumulation of litter and debris is washing into the storm water system which can pollute our rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. Litter also attracts feral cats and vermin. For these reason, the decision was made to resume street sweeping. Lebanon City partnered with local churches, schools and owners of privately-owned parking lots to give residents a convenient place in their neighborhood to move their vehicle for street sweeping. Please click on the below link to read the Update on City Services which includes a list of the available parking lots.
Enforcement of parking meters and all parking regulations will resume on June 3, 2020. The 15-minute reserved parking at meters in front of restaurants for customers picking up food will continue during the yellow phase. Signs are hung on parking meters designating the spaces for the 15-minute parking.

|The Spotted Lanternfly|
With the onset of warmer weather, we are beginning to see the spotted lanternfly in this area. The spotted lanternfly is an invasive planthopper that was first discovered in Pennsylvania in Berks County and has spread to other counties in the southeast portion of the Commonwealth. This insect has the potential to greatly impact agricultural crops such as grapes, hops, and hardwoods. It is also reducing the quality of life for people living in heavily infested areas.
For more information about the spotted lanternfly and to report sightings, visit the Pa. Department of Agriculture website.
