Notice of Hydrant Flushing
Monday - Friday from 7:30 am until 3:30 pm
starting Monday, October 10, 2016
As part of the City of Auburn's maintenance program, the Department of Public Works is preparing to perform a comprehensive flushing of the water system using the fire hydrants. The Hydrant Flushing Program is necessary to maintain adequate water quality and to ensure the proper functioning of the distribution system.
You may experience lower quality water pressure and discolored water during this maintenance work. It is recommended that Residents let their water run for a few minutes, until it clears up, prior to drinking or doing laundry. If the water does not clear or water pressure does not return to normal after one hour, call the Dept. of Public Works at (989) 662-7275 and a City representative shall be dispatched to your location. In addition, if you see water department personnel in your area, please refrain from using excessive amounts of water for a one hour period.

New Blight Ordinance and Brush Chipping Policy
| The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the request for consideration in the State's Attorney General's straight-ticket voting case, meaning the straight-ticket voting option will appear on Michigan's November 8, 2016 general election ballot.
You will be able to check a single box on the ballot to cast your vote for a particular party (straight-ticket voting) or you may select individual candidates regardless of party affiliation.

Festival of Banners
Auburn DDA with the help of Mayor Kilbourn and City Personnel have made the final choices on the banners that will be displayed on the light poles along Midland Road from May to November. This festival is designed to help beautify our city and to showcase the art talent in our community. The theme is: What we love about Michigan.
Check back soon for highlights of some of the banners that were chosen.
It would not be possible to put on the Festival of Banners without the support of the Auburn DDA.
