Welcome to City News! Through City News, I’m hoping to connect with each of you, to bring you closer to your community and maybe even tempt you to try something new.
Supporting local businesses is so important to a thriving community. Often, it’s the small business owners who support school functions, civic clubs and sponsor city events.
These entrepreneurs are critical to the health and wellbeing of our communities. It’s wonderful to support these folks and I hope you’ll join me in celebrating them through City News.
I’d like to know what bits of info interest you the most: Upcoming events? New businesses? A little of everything?

Exercise Your Rights While Avoiding the Polls
With the passage of Proposal 18-3 in 2018, Michigan voters can now vote by absentee ballot for any election without a reason.
To make this process even easier, the city clerk’s office maintains a permanent absentee voter list for those voters who would like to vote by absentee ballot regularly.
Watch for a mailing coming soon with detailed information about voting by mail and being added to the permanent absentee voter list.
