Beginning tomorrow morning (Thursday, May 30), one lane of Main Street near Broad (in front of TCF Bank and Joe & Rosie's) will be closed for a repair of the concrete crosswalk. Two way traffic will be maintained. The closure will be necessary until the concrete cures, which is estimated to take until the end of the day Saturday, June 1. The crosswalk will not be available for use during this time. Please proceed with caution through this area.
The Village would like to remind residents and property owners that the Village Public Nuisance Ordinance requires that lawns be maintained to a height of 8 inches or less. Weeds and long grass provide a breeding place for mosquitoes and contribute to unsightly property. Please also note that per the Village’s Nuisance Ordinance the accumulation of junk or rubbish, including unlicensed or inoperable motor vehicles, household and other equipment in disrepair and inoperable boats and trailers (except in a completely enclosed building), are considered public nuisances. If you should ever have any complaints, concerns or questions regarding Village ordinances or requirements please contact the Village Office at 734-426-8303.

In an effort to protect our aquifers, conserve water resources, and help ease our peak hour water demand, the Village of Dexter has implemented mandatory outdoor water restrictions effective May 15, 2013.
Outdoor water usage is restricted to odd/even days. Residents and businesses with odd numbered addresses (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) may do outdoor watering only on odd numbered dates. Likewise, those with even numbered addresses (2, 4, 6, 8, 0) may do outdoor watering only on even numbered dates. In addition, outdoor watering is prohibited between 6 am and 10 am. A simple adjustment of the start time of your irrigation system control can achieve this.
Thank you for your cooperation as we work to protect and conserve our water resources.
A hawker/peddler permit has been issued to Protection One Alarm Monitoring to go door to door in the Village between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The permit is good until November 20, 2013.

Roadways and parking lots throughout the Village will be striped starting after the evening rush hour on May 13 and May 14 (weather permitting).
Results from Tuesday's election can be viewed here. The Cityhood process will be continuing with the election of a Charter Commission. We will be working with the State Boundary Commission and Washtenaw County Clerk to determine the election date and filing deadline and will publicize them as soon as possible.
The Village would like to thank the Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) students who helped us beautify the Village by cleaning up the flower bed on the east side of Monument Park. We would also like to thank the Dexter Garden Club for maintaining the area around the downtown clock and flagpole. If you are involved with a group that would like to work on a landscaping project please reply to this e-mail or contact the Village Offices at 734-426-8303.
Thank you also to American Legion Post 557 for donating new American Flags for downtown.
