StoryLocal government impacts so much of our lives. Who’s there to cover it?
LebTown needs your help to ensure that local municipality meetings don’t go uncovered in Lebanon County. Donate today to unlock additional coverage for the community.
Become a donor and you’ll be able to provide your vote on which municipalities we prioritize first. We expect that for every $3,000 raised, LebTown will be able to cover an additional municipality for an entire year. If we reach our initial goal, that will mean that five municipalities in Lebanon County will receive ongoing coverage that simply doesn’t exist today.

Why is coverage of local municipal meetings important? Local news outlets are something of a wonder drug. They bring communities together and reduce polarization, increase political engagement by citizens, reduce corruption, and even decrease the cost of government. In most cases though, the watchdog function of journalism isn’t even the most important role we serve! Our primary mission is simply keeping readers up to date on the happenings of their local government. All of these benefits are within reach for Lebanon County, but LebTown will need your help to realize them.
Help us restore local news to Lebanon County by donating to the LebTown Civic Impact Reporting Project today.
