Earlier today, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-59. It extends the Stay at Home Order to May 15, 2020, but loosens up a few things like lawn care and landscaping services as provided for in the Order. Based on the data, Michigan is doing well in changing the trajectory of those impacted by the virus. Far less people are being hospitalized and far less people are dying from the virus. In addition, large numbers of people who tested positive for the virus are considered recovered.
Personally, I am looking forward to just seeing some people out working around our community, taking care of yards. We encourage everyone to follow the Governor’s Executive Order and know that we are headed down the backstretch.
Remember that we remain available to our residents and businesses. All of the citizens of the community can count on us to be here. While our offices remain closed at City Hall, the Community Center, and the Department of Public Works, you may still contact us at our main building phone numbers during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. / Monday – Friday). For City Hall, that number is 248.370.9400; for the Community Center/Senior Services, that number is 248.370.9353; and for the Department of Public Works, that number is 248.391.3777. The DPW can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org which is monitored regularly. And as previously mentioned, an after-hours emergency requires that you dial 9-1-1. With this new order extending to May 15, 2020, our offices will continue to remain closed.
BE PATIENT • BE KIND • BE UNITED • BE WELL
And most of all, TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.
Tom Tanghe, City Manager
