Lebanon officials are in contact with State of New Hampshire Fish and Game Officers and Wildlife Experts to monitor the bear activity and implement strategies to lessen the likelihood of encounters with people.

Healthy Lawns...
Not Perfect Lawns!

An attractive lawn, park, or playing field is an important part of summer recreation for many of us. However, lawn care practices can have unintended consequences, impacting the health of our waterways and wildlife, not to mention children and pets. The good news is that we don’t need to use chemicals to have healthier, more attractive lawns, parks, and fields. The Lebanon Conservation Commission shares the following steps homeowners or businesses can take, now and through the growing season, to improve overall lawn health.

Dog License Reminder

As a reminder, dog licenses were due as of April 30, 2018. If you received a courtesy reminder notice in May, this indicates that your dog was not licensed in April. As long as your dog is licensed by May 31, 2018, you will not pay additional fines and late fees. Please remember, the Clerk's office cannot issue licenses for dogs with expired rabies vaccinations. It is important to know that beginning on June 1st, each dog which remains unlicensed will be assessed additional fees, in addition to the standard licensing fees.
