Covid-19 City Update

imp info

Due to the emergency orders that our state and county leaders have 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 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 and fire 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 I 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 50 people, our Easter Egg Hunt in early April is cancelled. 

Governor Whitmer has also issued an executive order limiting the size of group gatherings.

Non-essential city events will be postponed for the next 8 weeks.

Non-essential Keego Harbor public meetings will not be held until after April 19, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation. 

We do have a city council meeting scheduled for this Thursday, March 19 @ 7pm.   We are in discussions as to whether to postpone, host a virtual meeting, or conduct a shortened in-person meeting to discuss only critical matters. I will make an announcement very soon about the status of that meeting.

I am partaking in a meeting Tuesday afternoon with other Oakland County Mayors and Twp. Supervisors.  We will be briefed by Oakland County Executive Coulter and his Sr, Health department staff.   I will update you all after that event.   

Our State Rep Brenda Carter has also been in contact and has been providing updates.

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
