Highlighting economic development in Novi
March 2019
The history of Public Safety in Novi
The City of Novi is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and each month we are releasing a new video highlighting a part of Novi's history. This third video in the series highlights the history of Public Safety and the man who was there from the beginning, Chief Lee BeGole.

We still are looking for businesses to be featured on Business Avenue. If you want to be featured on an upcoming episode that airs on Novi Television, YouTube and cityofnovi.org . Shoot us an email at novibusiness@cityofnovi.org to set up a time that works for you and our Studio No.VI team will do the rest.
