Have a street light outage to report?

Street lights are actually maintained by DTE, not the City. Report an outage quickly and easily through DTE's online Street Light Problem form. Outages or issues with the shorter decorative light poles throughout the downtown district can be reported directly to DPW.

Does the City use anticoagulants?

In October of 2020, City Council signed a resolution against the use anticoagulant rodenticides as part of maintenance programs for City-owned parks and facilities and recognized that the use of anticoagulant pesticides are harmful to our community environment. The City’s DPW discourages the use of anticoagulants and serve as a model in promoting alternative means of pest control on public property. The full resolution can be found here.
