LPHS Green Team Update City Hall
This Saturday, June 15th starting at noon, the Lincoln Park Green Team and other volunteers will be adding some much needed updates to the front of City Hall.

The existing flowers will be kept, but drought resistant flowers will be added in addition to mulch and decorative stone along the edges.

Snacks and light refreshments will be provided. We welcome all volunteers who are interested in helping!




Summer Tax Bills Coming Soon
Summer taxes will be mailed June 30th and are due August 20th. If you are paying by installments, the first installment is due by August 20th or you must pay the entire tax bill in full with interest.

Avoid the lines and pay by mail, internet or by using the City's drop box. The Treasurer's Office accepts postmarks for taxes and water bills. 

Your tax and water bills are also accepted at Lincoln Park Community Credit Union, 1400 Emmons, Lincoln Park. You do not have to be a member to pay. You must have your tax or water bill with you and they do not accept credit cards.
Reporting Potholes
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

Curbside Etiquette:
Why Was My Trash Missed?
One of the most common reasons why our rubbish collection contractor misses pickups is because they simply did not see it!

It is important to place your cart so that the opening faces the street with the lid completely closed to avoid rubbish from falling in to the street. Be mindful to make sure the cart is not blocked by a vehicle or other curbside items.

Yard waste must be placed in designated paper yard waste bags or properly marked containers. Yard waste stickers are available at City Hall.

The yard waste truck will not stop to look in unmarked containers. All branches and twigs need to be cut in 3 foot lengths and bundled with twine. Filled bags must be less than 50 lbs. Please remember, dirt is not considered yard waste and will not be accepted.
July 4th Holiday
The City of Lincoln Park will be closed in observance of the July 4th Holiday.

Your garbage collection will be delayed one day for the remainder of the week.
