IMPORTANT INFORMATION about IDENTITY THEFT
Identity Theft is real and affects many residents in our city. Precautions that should be taken involve the use of your credit and debit cards. Many card companies will call you if they see suspicious activity on your account. First and foremost, the companies do not ask for your account numbers or personal information when they call you. Questions will be asked about the suspicious activity such as; on-line charges from out of state or large item purchases. When shopping and using ‘plastic’, keep receipts with you and not with the merchandise. Do not throw out receipts in trash containers outside the businesses - there is enough information on the receipts allowing access to your accounts. Review your accounts frequently for unauthorized activity.
When traveling or leaving your residence for a period of time; place holds on mail and newspapers, contact neighbors or family to keep an eye on your property, use timing devices on lights and contact police for vacation checks. No matter if leaving for the evening or extended periods of time, always secure the doors and windows. If you observe suspicious activity, contact 911 immediately as you are more familiar with the activities in your neighborhood.
If you see something that makes you feel uneasy, call 911!

Charity Street Vendor Information:
We have heard a few concerns about the charitable organization (Veteran Village USA) that was collecting donations at the intersection of Saginaw and Grand Blanc over the weekend of June 7th – June 9th, 2019. In 2017 Governor Snyder signed into law P.A. 112 which granted charitable organizations the opportunity to solicit donations while standing in the roadway. Under this state law, municipalities cannot deny organizations this opportunity, but can enact an ordinance to restrict some of the activities. Because of this state law, our city ordinance had to change to comply.
This state law can be found in the link below:
The City Ordinance information can be found in the following three links:

CHILD SAFETY SEAT TECHNICIAN
Officer Josh Edwards has been certified as a Child Safety Seat Technician. If you are a City resident and have questions regarding your child's car seat installations or usage, feel free to contact Officer Edwards at email@example.com. He will be more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have and will even stop by your house for a one on one demonstration on how to properly install your child's seat. For the residents who will be first time parent's, this would be great to take advantage of before you bring your child home for the first time.
Michigan's Child Passenger Safety Law requires:
Children younger than age 4 to ride in a car seat in the rear seat, if the vehicle has a rear seat. If all available rear seats are occupied by children under 4, then a child under 4 may ride in a car seat in the front seat. A child in a rear-facing car seat may only ride in the front seat if the airbag is turned off.
Children must be properly buckled in a car seat or booster seat until they are 8 years old or 4-feet-9-inches tall. Children must ride in a seat until they reach the age requirement or the height requirement, whichever comes first.
For your child's safety, the seat must be the right size for your child and must be properly buckled/attached to the vehicle.
If you are a parent, please utilize this service, it is free and should only take 10 to 15 minutes to ensure the safety of your child.
