Hey everyone! We hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend! We would like to take this time to issue a few reminders: First, with regards to fireworks in the City of Mt Morris. Each year we receive lots of complaints for fireworks and we would like to make sure everyone is aware of when you are allowed to participate in the fun. -Consumer fireworks are allowed on the day preceding, day of, and day following a national holiday. Use of fireworks is not allowed between the hours of 1am and 8am during that time. Please keep in mind that you are also required to be safe in the lighting of those fireworks and are responsible for damage done to private and/or public property by any fireworks that you light off. As for the Memorial Day Parade, the parade begins at 10am. The parade will be coming out onto Saginaw St from the Jr High and proceeding southbound through the city to St Mary’s. All Saginaw St traffic will be shut down from Alexandrine to Collins at approximately 9:50 until the conclusion of the parade. No traffic will be allowed onto Saginaw St once it is shut down until the parade is over so please plan accordingly if you must travel anywhere! As always contact us if you have questions. Be safe and, while you enjoy your Memorial Day, please keep in mind all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us free and allowed us to be here today.

The Mt Morris Police Department would like to issue a statement regarding the incident at the Mt Morris High School this past week. This incident was taken very seriously by both our police department and the Mt Morris School District, and after thorough investigation, we have concluded the following: -There was no gun actually witnessed at the school at any time whatsoever. -While threats were heard by several people, the threats that were heard were vague and unspecific. -Despite several stories floating around, there has been no indication or evidence of any type of "hit-list" or specific threats made against specific students or staff. -Although it was a very serious threat and we take it very seriously when these types of threats are made, specifically during times when similar incidents around the country led to and ended in such tragedy, there is no reason to believe that anyone was in any danger at any time based on the statements and evidence collected thus far. -As always, the Mt Morris Police Department will continue to have a presence in Mt Morris Schools in the form of a school resource officer, and he should be made immediately aware of any future threats to the safety and well-being of the students and staff of the Mt Morris School District. While we understand the frustration that some parents may be feeling regarding this incident, we can assure you that these types of things are not only handled swiftly and seriously but extremely thoroughly. Based on all of the information and evidence collected at this time, we do not believe that there is any immediate danger to the schools themselves or any of the students or staff in attendance. We would encourage all students to return to school as normal, and please report any and all suspicious or concerning behavior to the resource officer as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and have a great week!

Many commonly violated local ordinance (local law) violations can be viewed in the attached picture. Please know this list is NOT all inclusive and is only a quick snap shot of the most common ones we run across. Please visit the city’s website for a complete view of local ordinances.

Did you know... City ordinance requires you to take your trash and recycling bins in from the curb within 24 hours from pickup? During tonight's city council meeting it was brought up that many residents are unaware of this local ordinance. It should also be noted that your bins can only be placed out to the curb 24 hours in advance without authorization from the City Manager. Thank you for your help!!!!

Hello everyone, With the extreme temperatures in the area, we would like to remind you of some important tips to help you and your loved ones stay safe: -First, with the extreme cold and wind chills dropping temperatures to well below zero, keep in mind that the salt being dropped on the roads is not effective in removing ice. Even with a salt/sand mix, icy patches are forming and making travel very hazardous. We recommend allowing yourself plenty of time to reach your destination and please be very mindful that cars approaching stop signs and lights may not be able to stop. Allow approaching traffic to stop completely before proceeding through intersections. -It is recommended that you stay indoors, however if you must venture out, hats coats gloves and scarves are extremely important as hypothermia and frostbite can easily set in very quickly in the cold temps. If you are shoveling or doing any labor outside, take frequent breaks to warm up and do not over exert yourself. -The use of space heaters and other similar warming devices is always dangerous in nature. Be mindful that if broken or otherwise altered, they pose a fire risk as well as the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning depending on the type of heater. Never operate any heaters without close supervision of the device. Gas powered heaters are not recommended for indoor use due to poor ventilation and the extreme risk for harmful gases to be released. Remember that carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, but can be very deadly. -With the extreme cold, remember that pets are also susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia and it can set it very quickly. Do not leave pets outdoors for more than a few minutes at a time. -Also, please check on loved ones who live on their own. Especially with the elderly, the extreme cold poses an even more significant risk to them. Encourage them to stay inside whenever possible and follow the same precautions. -And finally, it is recommended that you periodically turn on faucets and let water run through them to prevent pipes freezing. If possible, allow them to stay on at a "slow drip." Frozen pipes can wreak havoc on your home if one were to burst. As always, dial 911 if any type of emergency exists. In these temperatures, time is even more crucial to getting help to an emergency situation. Be safe and have a happy New Year!

Merry Christmas from the Mt Morris Police Department!! Have a safe and happy holiday!

ROADS ARE ICING QUICKLY THIS MORNING IN THE FORM OF BLACK ICE. USE EXTREME CAUTION!

Our deepest condolences go out to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office and to the Deputy’s family. God bless the Thin Blue Line.

City Hall, DPW, and Police Department Headquarters will be closed from November 22nd - November 26th in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Hello everyone, We would just like to take a quick minute to offer a reminder of some safety tips to help keep you and your family safe this Halloween. As you may be aware, Trick-or-Treating will be from 6pm to 8pm within the city limits on Tuesday October 31st. -Due to the time of year, it starts getting dark much earlier than we are all still used to. Therefore we highly recommend everyone take a flashlight with them. Also, as an added precaution, you are encouraged to use small blinking lights that can be bought at several nearby stores and clip them onto your children's costumes to help them be more visible to traffic. If you are planning to use your vehicle to assist children in getting around, be mindful of all traffic laws, especially with regards to parking and vehicle positioning. Traffic needs to be able to move unhindered and in the event of an emergency, there needs to be plenty of room for responders to reach their destination. -For motorists, please please please use extra caution traveling around the city, especially during this time. Understandably, children get very excited during this event and are prone to running around with little to no regard for cars and traffic. Please keep your eyes on the road and your focus on what is going on around you so we can make this safe for everyone. We realize that the road construction on Saginaw St is extremely frustrating and inconvenient, however we ask that you please avoid taking back streets to avoid it due to the expected added traffic from trick-or-treaters. -As always parents, check your children's candy before letting them eat any of it. If any suspicious or harmful items are located, please dial 911 and have an officer come by to check it. -And finally for the children, if you see an officer driving around and not on the way to a call, don't forget to stop and say Trick-or-Treat! They will be handing out candy too!! Have fun and please enjoy this years Halloween. And as always if there is anything we can do to help please contact us at 810-686-4400!!

Good afternoon everyone! We have finally reached October, which means Christmas is creeping up in just a few short months. We are happy to announce that the Mt Morris Police Department will be participating in No Shave November this year again! Except with a little catch, we are starting a month early!! From October 1st to December 1st, officers can donate money in lieu of shaving and sport their beards in an effort to raise money for a worthy cause. This year, the money will be going to those affected by the hurricanes that have plagued the southern states. Many of those people lost everything and they need our help. If you would like to join us in helping, please stop by either the police department or city hall and let them know that you would like to help, or if you see a city officer out and about, feel free to stop them (if they aren't on a call or traffic stop of course) and let them know you want to help! As always, be safe!

*** UPDATE *** September 28, 2017 - 3:21pm ----------------------------- The boil water advisory has been lifted. We would like to express our gratitude to the residents for their patience and understanding. Thank you

Residents: We have received numerous inquiries lately regarding the house on Washington Ave that is dilapidated due to the fire that occurred there some time ago. Unfortunately, just like many things in the public sector this too has taken a long time to properly handle. Without getting into the legal jargon there has been numerous steps the city administration has taken to resolve this issue. Thankfully, the process is almost complete. Demolition funding has been secured and bids obtained. Now all we are waiting on is Consumers Energy to properly cut and plug the site so demolition can take place. Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this matter. Hopefully, it won't be much longer before progress is visible. As always if there is anything we can do to assist you please feel free to contact us! - City of Mt Morris Fire Department - City of Mt Morris Police Department

The Mt Morris Police Department would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Office of the Genesee County Sheriff. One of their own, Sgt Mark Holland lost his courageous battle with cancer. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Rest easy brother.
