Good morning Eaton Rapids.  I’m sitting at my desk in City Hall to offer you a brief update.

I want to let you know that we will keep your lights on and your water flowing. There may be some changes in hours and we will strive to keep you abreast of anything like that that may occur.

I have proposed to the City Council that we suspend the fees associated with utility shut offs and perform no shutoffs until July 1st. That is the start of our new Fiscal year. Likewise, I have proposed to the City Council that the recently enacted Rental Inspection Ordinance be suspended until July 1st . This will give our landlords the opportunity to reset their plans and tend to their business as well.

The City Council will meet this Monday, the 23rd, at 5 pm (work session) and 7 pm (council meeting).

I recognize that all of you face extraordinary challenges. Depending on which channel or paper you read you get mixed information.  Common sense must prevail.

My personal cell phone number is (517) 490-5005.  My City Email address is

I will be at City Hall today (Sunday, March 22, 2020) and have the doors open to the second floor from 12 until 3:00.
