Coronavirus Prevention and Info
Governor has created a new taskforce regarding the Coronavirus.
Michigan currently has no known cases of the disease. For the general American public, who are unlikely to be exposed to this virus at this time, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low. People in communities where ongoing community spread with the virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported are at elevated though still relatively low risk of exposure.
Patients with confirmed infection have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:
- Shortness of breath
The best prevention for viruses, such as influenza, the common cold or COVID-19 is to:
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others.

SANTA BARBARA WATER MAIN PROJECTALERT: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2019 WORK IS BEING DONE ON WILTSHIRE BETWEEN SANTA BARBARA AND SUNET.
The City began construction on a new water main along Santa Barbara from 11 Mile north to Roseland, east on Roseland to Bloomfield & north on Bloomfield to 12 Mile. As part of this project there will be times when your water might be turned off. We apologize but we do not know when you could be affected, but on that day our DPS employees will knock on your door to inform you. It will be out aproximately a few hours. When the water is turned back on you may encounter brown water and/or air in your lines. To address this issue go to the lowest point in your home and run the COLD water until it appears clear and the air pockets disappear. Please do this BEFORE turning on your water in the rest of your home. If you experience low water pressure you will need to remove and clear your faucet aerators.
The City appreciates your patience during this process.
If you have any questions please call the City office at (248)557-2600.

2. Shortly after, DTE planners will assess your neighborhood and create a trimming plan.
3. If trimming is needed on your property, DTE will knock on your door and leave a door hanger describing the necessary trimming. Your planner will leave his/her contact information to answer any questions you may have regarding the work planned for your property.
4. If a tree possess a hazard to the power lines, and/or trimming will damage the tree's health, it may be removed. These trees will be marked with two white dots. In this instance, DTE planners will make every effort to contact you to discuss the removal. After your tree removal permit is signed, planners will mark the tree with a white "X" indicating it is ready for removal.
