Recently the City has seen an increase in the amount of door to door vendors in our neighborhoods. A permit for this activity is required. When a permit is issued, it is posted on the City website, Facebook page, and is sent out via the e-mail update. Permits are currently active for Clean Water Action, Groundcover News and Healthy Smiles Dental Care of Dexter. If you have any concerns about a vendor in your neighborhood, please contact the Washtenaw County Sheriff at 734-994-2911.
As the weather gets warmer please be careful when crossing the street and watch for increased pedestrian/bicycle traffic while driving.
Hydrant flushing for Spring 2015 is complete.
