In preparation for the roundabouts project, a DTE contractor will be relocating a gas main along Baker between Shield and Dan Hoey.

In an effort to protect our aquifers, conserve water resources, and control our peak hour water demand, the City of Dexter will be continuing the water restrictions that were in place last summer.

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.

Please be reminded that before any work is done or materials are temporarily stored in a City right of way, a right of way permit is needed. The width of the right of way varies throughout the City. In the original village area it is a total of 99 feet wide, including the roadway. In the newer neighborhoods, it is generally a total of 60 feet wide including the roadway. In areas with sidewalks, the right of way includes the area between the sidewalk and the curb. In areas without sidewalks, it includes the area from the property line to the road. The permit is required to make sure that the work conforms with the City Engineering Standards and to make sure that the area is properly restored to the condition it was in before the work. For more information on obtaining a permit, please call the City Office at 734-426-8303. The form can be accessed online at http://dextermi.gov/node/144
