How do I find out about taxes specific to Mt. Lebanon?
See the Tax Department page in this website.
Why is it necessary to reduce the size of Mt. Lebanon's deer herd?
Wildlife experts have determined that there are more deer per square mile than the community can accommodate. An overabundance of deer in a highly developed area such as Mt. Lebanon leads to property damage and an increase in vehicular collisions. Too many deer per square mile also means that there is not enough food to support the deer population.
Who made the decision to cull the herd, and was the public consulted?
The decision to control the size of the deer herd was made by Mt. Lebanon’s elected officials after extensive study by the Public Works Department, which will oversee deer management. There were many public meetings that provided an opportunity for the public to comment, as well as a public hearing on the subject. The deer management issue also has been featured prominently in Mt. Lebanon magazine. Questions and answers and the proposed plan have been posted on the municipal website for many months. The daily newspapers also have followed the issue closely.
Why is the dye test program in effect?
In order to control loading in the sanitary sewer, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requires each local government to adopt a corrective action plan. One of the requirements of the plan is to reduce overloads to the sanitary sewer by removing rain, or storm water, from the lines.
What's the problem if my conductors or area drains are connected to the sanitary sewer?
Sanitary sewers are designed to accept a rather constant flow of sewage from household water. The sudden, rapid flow of rainwater from roofs, patios, driveways, etc., can overload these sanitary sewer causing them to overflow and pollute adjacent streams.

Yes. The Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance, also known as Chapter XVI, of the Mt. Lebanon code regulates development in the municipality.
