Cleanest City team seeing results, planning for future

Sherry Regnier has lived in 30 different homes around the country, including the U.S. Virgin Islands, over the last 20 years. But when her husband got a new job in Indianapolis, she needed to find a place to call home, hopefully a place they would stay for a while.

She looked in Indianapolis, but everything seemed so dirty, she said. She spent months staying in hotels in communities in central Indiana. While looking online, she saw information about Lebanon: The Cleanest City in Indiana program, and she decided to check the city out.

“I was driving around and thought, you know, it is clean,” she said Friday, July 12, at a joint meeting of the Lebanon Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions clubs. “I felt comfortable here. It’s a very friendly city, and extremely clean.”

And Regnier ended up buying a house here, thanks to that first article she saw about the clean city program.

Regnier shared this story at the joint meeting Friday at Ulen Country Club. The meeting was an update on the cleanest city program, which has been active for three years. Many city officials and other speakers addressed the changes they have seen since the program began. All attendees were given a bright orange shirt with the clean city logo on it as they entered.

“I gotta say, the last time I spoke to this many people wearing orange, I was down on Indianapolis Avenue,” joked Lebanon Police Lt. Brent Wheat, referring to the Boone County Jail.
