City Services Update Following Last Week's Flood Event

June 26, 2017 – As last week’s flooding event begins to recede, the City wishes to update residents on a number of City services that have been impacted.

The City’s Public Services crews are currently conducting special heavy item collection to dispose of flood-damaged items. Crews will be focusing first on the hardest-hit areas, including the neighborhoods bounded by Dublin Avenue, Wackerly Street, Eastman Avenue, and Saginaw Road, before proceeding on to other areas of the city. Repeat special collection trips will be made as demand and schedules allow. Regular refuse and recycling collection will continue as scheduled during this time.  

To assist City residents and DPS crews with clean-up, the Sanitary Landfill has extended its hours of operation until 9 p.m. through Saturday, July 1 to receive debris from DPS trucks. The landfill will accept flood-related refuse free of charge from city and county residents during regular operating hours. 

The main level and mezzanine of the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library are currently open to the public during the library’s regular hours; however, due to flood damage to the lower level, Youth Services, the Community Room, and MCTV are not accessible to the public at this time. All summer reading programs will continue as normal. For an update on youth services programs, call the library at 837-3430 or visit the reference desk. MCTV access users and producers can contact MCTV at 837-3474. Programming on MCTV and MGTV will continue as scheduled; however, temporary outages may occur over the next several weeks.

Residents and businesses who have incurred damage as a result of the flood should report their information to the City and Midland County via an online form at This data collection process is important to assist local government in applying for state and/or federal emergency aid. Residents without computer access can visit the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library to use a computer or visit City Hall from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to fill out a paper form.

Citizens are reminded not to call 911 with non-emergency related questions or requests. For road closure information, please visit
