Michigan Attorney General Issues Urgent Consumer Alert


Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued an urgent consumer alert urging Michiganders to be on high alert for bad actors aiming to coerce them out of their personal information in a new federal stimulus payment scam.    

Scammers are using the news that the federal government will send one-time payments to millions of people across the country as part of the federal economic relief response to COVID-19 to steal personal information. 

The Michigan Department of Attorney General has already received reports that residents are getting emails from websites appearing to be official demanding that they provide PayPal, bank account or other financial information to receive the $1200 federal stimulus payment immediately.

Building Department Update 


With the closure of City Hall, the Building Department is closed. All building permits and construction are suspended with the exception of those essential services defined in Executive Order 2020-21. For those essential services, permits must be applied for as required by Building, Mechanical, Electrical  or Plumbing codes as regulated by the state and local ordinance.  Permit applications may be accessed online and mailed, dropped off or emailed to the City.  Anyone proceeding with construction that is non-essential is doing so at their own risk, and may be required to later remove or replace construction that has occurred without permits or inspections.  A violation of Executive Order 2020-21 is a misdemeanor. Questions and completed permit applications can be emailed to hberry@hwmi.org. 

Fee for Online Water Bill Payment Waived


To encourage online payment of water bills, the credit card fee will be waived while City Hall is closed.  It will come in the form of a credit on your next water bill.  Water bill payments can also be placed in the secure drop box between City Hall and the Public Safety building.


To make an online water bill payment:


Click on the link to pay your water bill online.

Search for your water bill with either your name or your address.

Click on your address if it is correct.

Click on Make Payment.

The fee for making an online payment will be a credit on your next water bill.


The special City Commission meeting to declare a State of Emergency has been set for Wednesday, March 25th at 7:30 p.m. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the City Commission will not be convening in open session but will conduct their meeting remotely.  Please see below on how the public can participate in the meeting. 

A State of Emergency declaration will allow the City Manager to make immediate decisions in the interest of the City's health, safety and welfare.  This also positions the City to receive emergency funding if it becomes available and is necessary to deal with the outbreak.
