Concerned About Radiation?

The recent news about Hawaii's (false alarm) incoming missle warning has generated a good bit of public interest regarding the steps one should take in response to a nuclear explosion and the resulting radioactive contamination.  While the reality is that the chances of an incident such as this actually happening is VERY slim, there are a number of common-sense steps one can take to help improve their chances of survival in case the unthinkable DID occur.

Notice: Medical Marijuana Ordinance Guidance . . .

Several individuals have contacted City officials asking for guidance and assistance in seeking to place a proposed medical marijuana ordinance on the ballot through the initiative process.  Given the City’s roles in the initiative process, it would be inappropriate for City officials to provide the type of guidance and assistance that was requested.  Instead, individuals who are interested in pursuing such an initiative are encouraged to learn about the process on their own and/or with the guidance and assistance of their own attorney.

Beware of Telephone Scams!Recently, several Dearborn Heights residents have received telephone calls from individuals claiming to be IRS agents, informing the residents that they " . . . owe money to the IRS."

The callers try to pressure residents into either providing bank account or credit card, or other personal information to " . . . settle their account." Typically, when residents do not cooperate, the callers get more agressive and threatening. In many instances, the ...residents are threatened with " . . . IRS action" including jail time, foreclosure, bad credit ratings or a host of other threats.

These are scammers who are trying to cheat you out of your money - THEY ARE NOT IRS AGENTS. If you receive one of these calls, SIMPLY HANG UP. The IRS does NOT contact individuals by telephone to collect funds. Giving your credit card or bank account information to any unknown caller who is demanding any type of payment over the phone will almost certainly result in a loss of your money.  JUST HANG UP!

Residents Reminded to "Run Their Water" After Main Breaks
The City of Dearborn Heights experiences water main breaks from time to time throughout the city. As repairs are being made, small amounts of rust coloration are often released into the water supply. If you experience this discoloration in your water, simply run your water for a short period (10-15 minutes) until the discoloration dissipates and your water appears clear again. Although not harmful if consumed, laundering white or light-colored fabrics in discolored water could result in rust-colored stains.
