As you are aware, it is almost Thanksgiving, COVID-19 cases are spiking in Allegheny County and the Allegheny County Health Department issued a “Stay-at-Home to Stop Social Gathering Advisory” on November 18.  

We understand that many Mt. Lebanon residents consider exercise important to health and well-being. But in deference to the County advisory, we are temporarily suspending the majority of recreation programs and closing most recreation facilities, effective Tuesday, November 24. Programs and facilities will remain closed until Tuesday, December 8. We will re-evaluate COVID-19 cases and other details on Friday, December 4 and provide an update to the community.

If you were registered for any programs, we will contact you with details concerning our plans to resume programming.

Municipal fields, parks and outdoor sport courts are open for individual and “same household” use only. The Golf Course also remains open with modified rules.

Additionally, the Mt. Lebanon Public Library is suspending in-person services for two weeks beginning Tuesday, November 24. Contact-free pickup, live reference and virtual services will still be available, as will 24-hour contact-free materials return via the library’s book drop. (Note: There will be no library services available after 2 pm on Wednesday, November 25 and all day Thursday, November 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday.)

The Municipal Building, 710 Washington Road, is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for tasks that cannot be handled online. Most questions you have or paperwork you need to file can be done online at www.mtlebanon.org. We ask that you check there first before coming in. Tax bills and other payments can be made in the boxes on the outside of the building.

If you do need to come inside, masks are required (unless you have a health condition that prohibits it) and will be provided to you if you do not have one. Physical distancing of at least six feet between other building guests and staff is also required. The lobby is open with an information kiosk and phone list so you can complete your tasks with the least amount of contact with others, to protect the safety of our visitors and staff.  Please observe all posted signs and warnings. We do reserve the right to re-close facilities if we find public behavior to be detrimental to health and safety. We appreciate all your contributions to keeping Mt. Lebanon safe.

Earned Income and Net Profits Tax

The new due date for 2019 Final Returns and 1st quarter 2020 Estimated Payments for individuals is JULY 15, 2020.

In line with the Commonwealth’s and Federal Government’s decision to extend the due date for the filing of 2019 year-end returns, the Municipality and School District have affirmed our tax collection committee’s decision to extend the due date to July 15, 2020 in the best interest of our taxpayers and tax professionals.

2020 Real Estate Taxes

The Municipality has decided to extend the real estate tax face collection period to December 31, 2020. This three (3) month extension means our taxpayers will not accrue any penalty if they pay the face amount by 12/31/20. Pending School Board approval on May 18, 2020, the School District’s installment plan will change from three (3) to four (4) payments. The new payment dates are as follows.

Municipal Due Dates

2% Discount Period: June 1, 2020 - July 31, 2020
Face Period: August 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020
Penalty Period: After December 31, 2020

School District Due Dates
2% Discount Period: June 1, 2020 - July 31, 2020
Face Period: August 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020
Penalty Period: After September 30, 2020

School District Only - Installment Plan

1/4 Face Due September 30, 2020
1/4 Face Due October 31, 2020
1/4 Face Due November 30, 2020
1/4 Face Due February 28, 2021

eCheck Payment Option
In order to mitigate check processing and other mail contact for our staff, the Municipality and School District are encouraging all taxpayers who wish to pay by check to use our payment portal to pay by eCheck. Both taxing bodies are waiving any eCheck fees. An eCheck drafts directly from your check or savings account in 1-2 business days. Please visit https://mylebo.mtlebanon.org/ for more this payment option.

You may pay your Mt. Lebanon tax bills and fees (storm water, property tax and sewerage, etc.) in the labeled box outside the municipal building.

A call to 412-253-4104, weekdays from 9 to 5, or a visit to neighborhoodaid.org will connect residents with a customer service representative versed in the vast array of available services, including help with obtaining food and medication, financial assistance, business resources and general information. Volunteers also are available for errands for those who cannot or should not leave their homes to get urgently needed supplies.

In a meeting with Mt. Lebanon emergency medical services professionals today, we learned that medics are seeing patients who are waiting too long to call an ambulance for critical medical issues because they are concerned with catching COVID-19 at the hospital. Kaitlin Shotsberger, St. Clair Hospital’s executive director of quality care and management, says patients should absolutely call 9-1-1 if they are having a medical emergency and that the hospital is taking steps to ensure COVID-19 patients are separated from others having medical issues.

She also noted the hospital’s triage line, 412-942-2600, is available weekdays, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., to help and direct patients who feel they might have the disease. People who suspect they have COVID-19 should not report to the hospital without calling their personal physician, hospital triage or 9-1-1 first.

Updated - 1:45 p.m.

The Mt. Lebanon police and fire departments shared detailed information about current practice and some changes to usual procedures during the COVID-19 outbreak. In order to keep the community and our first responders safe, please follow these directions until further notice:

1. For emergency calls, where a person’s personal safety or property are immediately endangered, call 9-1-1 right away. Officers will continue to promptly respond to the scene in a manner appropriate to the emergency. Always call 9-1-1 to report emergency situations.

2. For reports of previous crimes, suspicious behavior (not currently occurring), information requests, general complaints and similar needs, please call 9-1-1. The dispatcher will provide the details to an officer who will screen the call to determine the appropriate response. For circumstances that may not require a face-to-face interaction, an officer will call the complainant by phone to see if the request for police assistance or information can be handled by phone.

3. We strongly discourage walk-in complaints at the Public Safety Center. As a precaution, the Public Safety Center has been locked down to exclude visitors and other non-essential personnel. If it is necessary to visit the Public Safety Center to meet with a police officer or firefighter, please follow the instructions posted at the rear entrance to the facility.

4. To request a copy of a police report, please call our records department at 412-343-4143, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

5. To request a copy of a Pennsylvania State Reportable Crash Report, please visit: http://www.crashdocs.org/. All reports for Mt. Lebanon reportable crashes, which involve an injury or vehicle that requires a tow, are available for download at this website.

6. Fingerprinting services, child safety seat installations and public safety center tours are suspended indefinitely. If you need to be fingerprinted, find an authorized "IdentoGO" location at https://www.identogo.com/

7. For drivers who were previously issued a warning notice by an MLPD officer and need to show proof that the item was corrected, please respond to the rear parking lot of the Public Safety Center and call 9-1-1. Remain in the parking lot, in your car and an officer will respond to assist you.

8. If you need to speak with a firefighter for a non-emergency reason, call 412-343-3402.
