Downtown News
Water Survey
For the health and safety of our residents, the City of Lathrup Village is required to determine your water service line material. This aids in identifying if there is possible lead exposure in drinking water which may cause health risks. That is why the City of Lathrup Village is tracking where lead water service lines exist within our community.

There is a simple online tool created by the National Public Radio (NPR) that will guide you in determining if your water service line that connects to your water meter is lead, copper, or galvanized steel. Scan the QR Code to access the Water Service Line Inquiry Form and please complete this by the end of the month.
Michigan SBDC No-Cost Business Consulting
The Michigan Small Business Development Center is excited to make webinar recordings available to businesses at no cost. Webinars include Fundamentals of Small Business Success videos: Starting a Business, Writing a Business Plan, Marketing, Financial Management, and more!
Business Licenses
REMINDER: Business Licenses are required for all businesses operating in the City. Business License renewals will be mailed soon.
Sidewalk Program
the Sidewalk Replacement Program is expected to span over 3 years. The property owner remains responsible for the costs of the repair/replacement. Owners can repair the sidewalk themselves or participate with the city contractor. Under the city program, permit fees are waived and the payments may be spread over 2 years. A letter with more detailed information will be sent this week.
