City dedicates opioid settlement funds to Treatment Court

The Laclede County Treatment Court will receive some additional funds from Lebanon’s share of the national opioid settlement. At Monday’s Lebanon City Council meeting, the Council voted to dedicate an amount not to exceed $137,806 from the settlement to the Treatment Court. City Administrator Mike Schumacher said the funds must be used to address opioid abuse, addiction and rehabilitation and the Treatment Court is an allowable use of the funds.
