Community Information

Seasonal Parking Limitations: To ensure that city streets can be plowed and salted after heavy snowfalls, the city enforces the following citywide parking ordinance: Between the dates of November 1 and April 1, parking is prohibited on all city streets between the hours of 2:00am and 6:00am.

Please make arrangements to move your vehicle off the street during these hours or a Civil Infraction Notice (ticket) will be issued to the owner of the vehicle. Please help keep our streets safe this winter by complying with our Seasonal Parking Limitations.

Purchase Permit for a Hand Gun

An individual may apply for a License to Purchase a Pistol (LTP) at any police agency in the state that issues LTP forms. The purchaser must send the Michigan State Police (MSP) copy of the LTP to the agency that issued it.

Present a valid picture ID (such as a driver’s license) at the Sheriff's Office. A criminal records check will be conducted. Once the record check is completed, a permit will be issued and it MUST be used within 30 days or it is void. Once you have purchased your hand gun you MUST return the MSP Copy of the Application and License to Purchase a Pistol form to the Sheriff’s Office within 10 days.

If an individual purchases a pistol from a Federal Firearm Licensed (FFL) dealer, a LTP is not required. However, a Purchase Sales Record (PSR) must be completed and the seller’s FFL number must be recorded on that form. If you buy without the LTP you must return the MSP copy to the police agency where your residency is. The purchaser must send the MSP copy of the PSR to the law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where he/she resides.

Medication/Drug Disposal

In conjunction with the Ottawa County Health Department, there is a pharmaceutical collection box located in the lobby at City Hall for residents to dispose of unwanted drugs/medications.
