City of Lathrup Village
Governor's Executive Order 2020-42
Extends Stay Home, Stay Safe
to April 30, 2020

The City of Lathrup Village Administration Offices will remain closed to the public until April 30, 2020, in compliance with the Governor's Executive Order.

Under the Governor's new order 2020-42 , ALL public and private gatherings among persons outside a single household remain TEMPORARILY PROHIBITED through April 30, 2020, AND are subject to a fine of up to $1,000.

Though Michiganders may leave the house to get groceries or needed supplies, the new order encourages people to limit the number of household members running errands to the maximum extent possible.

As before, people may engage in outdoor activities like walking, hiking, running, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, or any other recreational activity, consistent with remaining at least six feet from people from outside a person’s household. Playgrounds remain closed.
POLICE UPDATES
Lathrup Village Police Dept.

We want our residents and business owners to be reassured that the LVPD continues to be vigilant in our patrol of the residential and business district of the City. Especially, since many businesses are temporarily closed, officers are actively patrolling all areas.

We take great pride in providing professional services for our community at all times.  

This is also a good time for all residents and businesses to be reminded to submit their Alarm registration forms and confirm that your contact information is current. This will greatly assist us in contacting you, should there be an emergency.

The Lathrup Village Police Department is requesting all residents and business owners that have a burglary or fire alarm not currently registered with the City, to turn in a registration form. 

It is important that all residents and business owners are aware of that this is a requirement under Article II, Chapter 26 of the Municipal Code. 

The cost of registering your alarm is only $20 for three (3) years. The information you provide could be vitally important in an emergency situation, if you aren’t at your home or business, and we need to reach you or your emergency contact.

Financial Assistance
Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner's office has a Financial Empowerment Center that offers free counseling for small businesses who are having trouble during these tough times, including assistance with SBA Disaster Relief Loans and the Payroll Protection Program applications.

They also offer financial counseling for individuals having challenges with budgeting, housing and credit repair.

From applying for grants, loans and government support programs to getting help with business plans, financials and strategy, Lathrup Village residents and businesses are encouraged to reach out to lead counselor Reda Nafso at 248-807-5287 or nafsor@oakgov.com .
