Just a gentle reminder about fireworks for this weekend; Michigan State law requires that fireworks must be allowed on the Saturday and Sunday before Memorial day (5/29/21 -5/30/21) from 11:00am - 11:45pm, regardless of local ordinances.

We understand that excess noise can be frustrating after hours, especially to pets, veterans, or any others that have problems with loud noises or who would otherwise be bothered. Please bear with us and law enforcement during the holiday seasons in relation to these complaints as there is only so much that can be done.

Also please understand the only enforceable noise and fireworks ordinances in Alpena County are within the City of Alpena. The Michigan Fireworks Safety Act of 2011 (Public Act 256) exists not to restrict the use of fireworks, but to allow them on those specified dates and times in communities with existing ordinances, no matter what. According to the State Fire Marshal in 2019, "If no action is taken at the local government level, the state law allows for fireworks to be used all year long. Simply put, if there is no local ordinance restricting fireworks, then there are no local fireworks restrictions in your municipality."

Again, with that being said, reasonable celebration and good relationships with your neighbors (whom you have to live near and deal with year round) will always make any conflicts more manageable without involving law enforcement. We always encourage citizens to be active in local government, so if you have any concerns with ordinances (or lack thereof), please share your thoughts with your local leaders (Alpena city council or your local township committees and supervisors.) Let's all have a safe and happy weekend!

With the weather getting warmer we wanted to briefly touch upon a few topics that come up frequently this time of year and during the summer in order to keep everyone informed.

Vehicle break ins - A regular issue at night is valuables stolen from vehicles. The easiest way to deter thieves is to not leave keys or valuables in your vehicle and keep them locked with the windows all the way up and alarm systems armed. While most thieves are looking for valuables they can quickly steal and leave, no community is immune from cases of stolen vehicles themselves. Vehicles are usually not stolen to be possessed, but in planning for later use in violent crimes.

Animals left in vehicles - Temperatures can rise rapidly inside cars when the outside temperature starts to reach or exceed 70 degrees, even with the windows down. While there is no law in the State of Michigan SPECIFIC to leaving animals in vehicles in and of itself, we can send officers to check an animal's welfare and try to make contact with the owner as long as they are not needed on other calls. Further investigation and application of other local laws / rules can be applied if needed. If you're going to leave your animal in your vehicle while you go inside a business or somewhere else anyway, it would be best for all parties involved (especially the animals) to just leave them at home.

Fireworks - Michigan State law requires that fireworks must be allowed regardless of local ordinances on the following days after 11:00 am:

December 31 until 1:00 am on January 1
The Saturday and Sunday before Memorial Day, until 11:45 pm
June 29 to July 4, until 11:45 pm
July 5, if it falls on a Friday or Saturday, until 11:45 pm
The Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day, until 11:45 pm

Please take 10 min out of your day to vote YES on Tuesday May 4th to continue the 911 surcharge in Alpena County. The $3 on your monthly phone bill pays for all the equipment, technology and wages for 911 so no money comes out of the county’s budget.

You guys need 3 more fire ground talk grounds. Stop being cheap and get those fireman 3 more. Thanks
When confirmation of infection comes, will there be a tightening of the travel restrictions I Alpena? Will there be a review of the non-essential companies who are claiming to be essential who are continuing to require employees to report to work?
Any updates on road conditions right now?
Not sure to to send this to. There is a antenna tower lights not working at Ant it's next to the State of Michigan tower. The other tower I believe it's the County Tower Is flashing the red light on top and no side lights are working at all.
Any update available on Current secondary road conditions in the county?
