FIRE PREVENTION WEEK October 6 - 12, 2019


In recognition of this annual event, Bay City Department of Public Safety will inform citizens of fire prevention and fire safety tips. The Bay City Department of Public Safety also visits every elementary school in the city for fire prevention.
 
The Fire Prevention Week commemorates the Great Chicago Fire. In 1911 on the 40th anniversary, the Fire Marshals Association of North America (FMANA); the oldest membership section of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), sponsored the first National Fire Prevention Day, to observe the anniversary as a way to keep the public informed about the importance of fire prevention. Each year the NFPA, has sponsored Fire Prevention Week and they select its annual theme.

Business Crime Watch


The Bay City Department of Public Safety has been working with area businesses for years helping to deal with crime problems before they occur. The Business Crime Watch Program is designed to form a partnership between the business community and the Bay City Department of Public Safety. Working together to reduce the likelihood of crime is our ultimate goal. To achieve this goal, Community Policing Officers are focused on three major areas: communication, training, and security surveys.

Members of the Business Crime Watch Program will receive a monthly newsletter about crime trends affecting our business community. Business burglaries, vehicle larcenies, counterfeit currency, or various frauds would be examples of some of the information members might receive. Officers email the newsletters to the member business so they are aware of the potential problem and can take whatever measures needed to prevent from being a victim of the same or similar crime.

The Bay City Business Crime Watch Program is meant to be an open communication between law enforcement and business communities. Crime Prevention only works if you get involved to assist law enforcement with making our community safer.

To become a member of our Business Crime Watch Program, please contact the Community Policing Unit at (989) 892-5900.

Look for something new Coming Soon!


We’re excited to announce that later this fall, the City will implement a recycling drop-off site at the Transfer Station.

We can’t provide all the details yet, but there will be an opportunity for residents to recycle some of those “hard-to-recycle” items on a regular basis. This project is possible in part with funding with a Recycling Infrastructure Grant from Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE).

Drinking Water Revolving Fund 
Watermain Project


The Water Division obtained a low-interest Drinking Water Revolving Fund loan through Michigan EGLE (formerly MDEQ). The loan is for $5 million; in which $1 million does not have to be paid back. With new legislation, the City is now responsible for replacing private watermain services if they are made from lead or galvanized lead. This funding allows the City to perform a construction project that focuses on lead lines.

There are three sections of the project:

  1. Replacement of Lead or Galvanized Private Water Services
  2. Replacement of Lead Watermain
  3. Hydro excavation to Determine Type of Water Services

The overall project includes approximately 1,000 water service replacements, 7 blocks of watermain replacement, and 5,000 hydro excavation locations.  

Construction will continue through 2020.
