To the residents of the Village of South Lebanon:
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine declared a State of Emergency in response to worldwide outbreak of the corona virus known as COVID-19 for the State of Ohio. The Governor has and is continuing to take actions to reduce the spread of this disease.
On Friday, March 13, 2020, I, as Mayor, declared a State of Emergency for the Village of South Lebanon in an effort to address the COVID-19 public health emergency.
To address this emergency, effective immediately, the following measures will be taken by the Village:
- The South Lebanon Municipal Building, 10 N. High Street, will not be open to the public. Village staff can be reached by calling (513) 494-2296 or by email. The list of Village staff email can be found by following this link: https://southlebanonohio.org/contact-information/
- Utility payments can be made by paying over the phone, mailing in your payment or by using the drop box on the south side of the Municipal Building along Broadway Street. No late fees will be assessed for the March utility bill. If you are having difficulty paying the utility bill as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, please contact the Village Utility Department.
- The Village Tax office will be available by phone or email only. The Village Tax Department information may also be submitted via the Village drop box on Broadway St.
- The Village Mayor’s Court and the regularly scheduled Village Council meeting will be canceled for the remainder of March.
In addition, these measures are necessary to protect not only the general public, but the health of the Village staff who will need to continue to provide public services during these difficult times.
As your Mayor, I urge all residents to follow the directions of our Federal, State, and local health officials in procedures to reduce the spread of this dangerous virus. As warranted, additional measures may be taken until the threat from this virus has subsided. Please continue to visit our website at www.southlebanonohio.org for updates.
