Winter is Coming!
The City wants to remind residents about the following snow related items.

Fort St, Dix Hwy, Southfield Rd, and Outer Dr are under the jurisdiction of Wayne County or MDOT. We are not responsible for salting or removal of snow on those roads.

The Department of Public Service is responsible for plowing 230 lane miles of road during snow events. DPS prioritizes main routes so emergency vehicles can get to schools, hospitals, and homes quickly.

When necessary, the City may declare a snow emergency to better allow DPS to plow our roads in a significant snow event. Please remember to move your vehicle out of the street when the City declares a snow emergency as to not receive a parking infraction.

Reminder! Lincoln Park municipal code requires the responsible party of each property to remove snow within their sidewalk within 24hrs and within 12hrs for ice accumulation

Report Pot Holes
Michigan's seasonal freeze-thaw cycles create the perfect conditions for potholes to form after snow and ice has melted. Moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and thaws, creating a gap in the pavement. As vehicles drive over the gap, the pavement weakens leading to a pothole. 

We want to make reporting them easy for you, but there are two things to remember. 

  1. Wayne County maintained roads are Outer Drive, Fort St, Southfield Rd, and Dix Hwy. Please report potholes on those roads to Wayne County or via the County Hotline at 1-888-762-3273
  2. For state roads (I-75), potholes can be reported online on the Michigan Department of Transportation website.
  3. For City maintained roads, please report local potholes here or call DPS at 313-386-9000 ext.2704
Automatic Withdrawal Now Available
The City of Lincoln Park is happy to offer residents automatic withdrawal of their water payments, right from your checking or savings account.

Be Ready for Tax Scams in 2019
As the state of Michigan begins a new year and the state income tax filing season approaches, the Michigan Department of Treasury is asking taxpayers to resolve to be ready for tax scams in 2019.
 
Cybercriminals typically increase their activity in the first part of the year through phone scams and email phishing schemes. These scammers try to obtain personal information using different tricks and tactics so they can file income tax returns and claim refunds on behalf of unsuspecting taxpayers.
 
Some scammers may also allege a taxpayer owes taxes and aggressively demand payment for a quick payout.
 
Treasury will never:  
  • Initiate a phone call or email to ask for personal information.
  • Call or email to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method, such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, Treasury will first send a bill through the U.S. mail to any taxpayer who owes taxes.
  • Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have the taxpayer arrested for not paying.
  • Demand that taxes be paid without giving the taxpayer the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed.
  • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
 
Cybercriminals often alter caller ID numbers and emails to make it look like the state Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service or another official agency is contacting a taxpayer. Scammers may use employee titles, a person's name, address and other personal information to sound official.
 
Taxpayers who are contacted by a scammer should immediately cease the call or delete the email.
 
Since 2016, the state Treasury Department's increased security measures protected more than 4,500 taxpayers who confirmed their identity was stolen and used to request state of Michigan income tax refunds. This prevented more than $19 million from being distributed to scammers.
 
Taxpayers who have received a call or email from a scammer should report the case to the IRS through the web or by calling 800-366-4484. To learn more about tax-related identity theft, go to www.michigan.gov/identitytheft

2019 State of the City/Schools
'Oak Wilt' is a fungal disease affecting oak trees caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fagacearum. Symptoms vary by tree species, but generally consist of leaf discoloration, wilt, defoliation, and death.
 
Oak Wilt is spread by insects (mainly sap beetles) and through root grafts between healthy and infected trees. One of the most common methods of introducing oak wilt into healthy trees is by pruning during the warm season. A good way to control Oak Wilt is by pruning Oak trees in the winter or early spring months, December through the end of March.  It is imperative that infected trees be removed. Do not use for firewood.  
 
 Consult an arboristif you're unsure if your Oak Trees may have oak wilt.
