**A Freeze Warning is in effect for tonight and Wednesday night**.

Freeze Warning in effect for both Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Widespread freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing. The upcoming cold nights will be more impactful than usually for late April given the early green up this season. Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above- ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our fellow brothers and sisters of Attica Fire department in Lapeer county.

Good morning. We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Halloween. With the time change that occurred last night, we want to remind everyone to be sure to change your smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries. This should be done every 6 months and the time change is perfect for that. Take a few minutes today to help yourselves and change your batteries.

Also as a reminder, smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years and carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every 7 years.

We have recently fielded several questions as to why our burning ordinance does not allow residents to burn leaves. The reason is because the DEQ prohibits it in a municipality of our size. Below is an excerpt from Act 451 of 1994.

NATURAL RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 451 of 1994

324.11522 Open burning of grass clippings or leaves; open burning of household waste; materials; violation; extension of prohibition to materials not listed in subsection (3); open burning of wooden fruit or vegetable storage bins constructed from untreated lumber; requirements; effect of local ordinance; burning of United States flag.
Sec. 11522.

(1) The open burning of grass clippings or leaves is prohibited in any municipality having a population of 7,500 or more, unless specifically authorized by local ordinance, which ordinance shall be reported to the department of natural resources within 30 days of enactment.
(2) Subsection (1) does not permit a county or municipality to authorize open burning of grass clippings or leaves by an ordinance that would otherwise be prohibited under part 55 or rules promulgated under that part.
