About the Calendar

The City of Midland publishes the annual City Calendar and Services Guides to provide citizens with information related to:

  • Public meeting schedules for Midland City Council and our boards and commissions
  • Due dates for taxes, utilities payments, and more
  • City and community events
  • General information about our departments' day-to-day operations, contact information, and ordinances
  • Beautiful photos of our community at work and play!

All residents within the City limits receive a City Calendar & Services Guide every year in their mailbox in early December. New residents in the community receive one in their "welcome packet" mailed by Public Services.

If you live outside of the City limits and would like a calendar, please visit City Hall, the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library, or the Municipal Service Center to pick up a copy!
