Flood Emergency Declaration
As a result of high-water conditions posing an immediate/imminent threat to persons or property, the city of Algonac is declaring a local flood emergency effective immediately per city ordinance 10-281. Owners of waterfront property are being notified to immediately provide adequate barriers to protect their property against the rising water, the overflow of waters and or floods.
If you fail to immediately provide adequate barriers, the city may proceed to provide such barriers by or under the direction of the city, at your cost. More than 500 Algonac waterfront owners are being notified by letter. There is far too much work to be done and far too many resources needed for any one organization to handle it all. If the whole community comes together, if neighbors work cooperatively, we can successfully prepare for these exceptionally high-water conditions. If you have questions, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
City is Hiring!
DPW is looking for a seasonal worker to help out for the next few months. Interested individuals fill out an employment application and submit to city email@example.com.
