A ribbon-cutting ceremony, hosted by Lebanon Mayor Sherry Capello, took place at 11:30 a.m. on May 23. Lebanon will now have all city departments, including police, fire and public safety, in the same building.

“Being in the urban core, a lot of people walk and don’t have means of transportation, a vehicle. So we’re closer to them to make it more convenient. And additionally, and I think one of the most important things is, just being able to increase the foot traffic and also for public safety purposes. The police presence in the downtown as well,” said Mayor Capello.

Lebanon’s previous city hall was located at 400 South 8th Street. The new office location is in the Downtown Lebanon area.
