Welcome to Madison Heights
TRASH PICKUP UPDATE: The City's refuse collector is currently 2 days behind schedule and along with City staff, continue to work diligently to pick up all the flood damage refuse in the City. In addition to these efforts, they will have trucks in the City on Saturday collecting trash as well. Your continued patience is appreciated.
The Michigan Community Services Commission is providing an application for requesting asssistance with flood clean-up - please click here for the application.
Please be advised: Rizzo is moving as fast as they can. They are still working to get all the garbage picked up. We have added another special trash pickup on Saturday, August 23. In addition, the Department of Public Services has begun assisting in the pickup of normal trash (non-bulky items).
On August 11, 2014 Madison Heights and most of southeast Michigan was hit with a major rainstorm. Estimates have the rain totals between 4.5 and 6 inches. Community’s sewer systems are designed to handle what is called a 10 year storm. Estimates have this storm between 100 and 200 years. No system can handle a storm of this magnitude. Please note the following important information:
- Water is safe to drink. You can be assured there is no connection to our potable water and the storm/sanitary sewer issues that have occurred.
- The flooding that occurred was region wide, impacting Madison Heights and all surrounding communities. It was not related to any recent or ongoing construction projects.
- If you have damaged items, please place at curb for pickup by our trash hauler. (Code Enforcement will not ticket you) Trash pickup will occur on your regular day and may take a little longer as the trucks will be filling up fast. Our hauler Rizzo will provide this service to residents with a Monday and Tuesday pickup next week. All others should get their items out to the curb this week. Please keep in mind that Rizzo has to get through over 9,000 homes. They are asking everyone to avoid cardboard boxes and paper bags, remove exposed nails, roll up carpet, and contain all small items in plastic garbage bags. Please put out your garbage as neatly as you possibly can. They will also take furniture and appliances.
- The City is in the process of declaring a State of Emergency and the State and County are actively involved in review of the situation.
- You are welcome to file a claim with the City (forms are available at City Hall or by clicking here) , but please be aware per Public Act 222, the City is only liable only if there are defects in the sewer system. A 100 or 200 year storm does not qualify.
- Like many of you, City Hall and our Court Building experienced major flooding. The City thanks you for your patience and we have witnessed many neighbors working together. This says a lot about the character of our community.
