Covid-19 City Update

imp info

Updated May 26, 2020

Due to the extended emergency orders that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has enacted, in response to the health risks posed by Coronavirus (COVID-19) and for the protection of our residents and staff, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and through at least June 12, 2020, the City of Keego Harbor will be restricting access to City Hall/Police offices.  We are still open to the public but operations are now by appointment only. If you wish to meet with any staff member, please call (248) 682-1930 to schedule an appointment with the proper individual. Employees will be available via email and phone during regular business hours. 

The police department is available 24/7.  If you have an emergency DIAL 9-1-1.  If you need an officer sent to your location (or back to the police station) for a non-emergency please call dispatch at 248-975-9200.  For Police Administration, Investigations, Records, Property or department related questions please call 248-682-3030, Mon – Fri 8am-4pm.  Outside those hours please leave a voicemail message.  If you need non-emergency service at the police department please call to set an appointment with on duty personnel so we can expect you.

Our police, fire and paramedic communications center will be asking callers questions regarding medical symptoms and recent travel. These questions are designed to reduce the risk of exposure to public safety personnel. EMS personnel are equipped with personal protective gear to protect themselves from exposure when treating potentially exposed patients.

There is a section on the Keego Harbor website with coronavirus information. We are following Federal and State guidelines, and we ask that you do as well. We intend to update the city website with relevant information.  Our Keego Harbor Police Department Facebook page will be updated with info as it becomes available....

We are requesting that individuals refrain from entering city buildings if they are feeling ill.

When you do enter city hall for an appointment you will see that we have created markings on the floor in front of reception desks identifying how far you are from the desk, to aid with social distancing.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause but feel these measures are necessary to protect the health of our staff and our visitors in light of the Coronavirus situation.

In addition, as the CDC has issued guidelines preventing gatherings of more than 10 people, unfortunately several events were cancelled, including our Easter Egg Hunt and Memorial Day parade. We hope and expect that these events will return in 2021.

As Governor Whitmer has also issued an executive order limiting the size of group gatherings, non-essential city events will be postponed until at least June 12, 2020. We will be making announcements about future city events as needed.

We do have a City Council meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 18 @ 7pm.   We are planning to host a virtual meeting. It will be broadcast live on Civic Center TV.  You will be able to call in with questions and comments. Virtual connection details will be included with our posted public agenda.

We have had updates at our April and May council meetings from our State Representative, Brenda Carter, and our Oakland County Executive, Dave Coulter. They have kept us informed about important State of Michigan and Oakland County initiatives and how they impact us in Keego Harbor. We also receive monthly updates from our fire and police chiefs at our meetings, as they inform us of activity with their/our public safety departments. We are grateful for their support during this uncertain time.

Non-essential Keego Harbor public meetings will not be held until after June 12, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation.

City parks are open for you to walk through and enjoy, but park equipment is unavailable for use at this time.

We will update you as we have more information.

Things are changing very quickly but you should know that we have a dedicated staff and they are hard at work every day.

I hope this information is helpful.

Please be kind to your neighbors.

Rob Kalman
Mayor, City of Keego Harbor
