Good Afternoon All,

Today the County of Macomb reported 2,066 COVID-19 cases in Macomb County with 83 reported deaths. Eastpointe has 195 reported cases.

In accordance with Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-21 (COVID-19), our detectives conducted an assessment of every open business. For the most part, several essential businesses remain open. There were several that were questionable and a few that were blatantly violating the order. A report will be completed on those businesses and will be forwarded to the State Attorney General's Office for review. This may result in a severe fine, criminal charges, or the suspension of a business license. We would like to thank all of those non-essential businesses who have complied with the order and taking responsibility. Our advice is to contact the AG office if you are unsure if you are in compliance. Safety is first.

A big shout out to EJH Construction who volunteered their time to make certain that our police and fire department buildings were properly sanitized. Very much appreciated. https://youtu.be/Sd2EA8B0VHM



Our number one priority as first responders is to protect you and your family members. We are now asking that you protect us during the COVID-19 pandemic. All you have to do is follow the simple temporary rules by staying home, continue to sanitize, and limit your contact with others. Every time you leave your home for unnecessary reasons, you increase the risk of being exposed and exposing others including your family members. We need to be smart because this is real. I will assure you that this will pass if everyone works together and does their part. Our first responders have taken every step to protect themselves from exposure. We are hoping for the best because there are no guarantees. For now, both police and fire have changed some of their operational approaches to make certain all of us are safe. We will always provide you with around the clock service to the best of our abilities. Remember, we are no use to you if we get ill.

According to the Macomb County Health Department, Eastpointe is a “hot spot.” We have no idea how many people in Eastpointe have been affected because we are not privy to that information. We also are not aware of where these individuals contracted the virus. One case is too many. The numbers will continue to increase as more people are being tested. You will see that the virus will spread and will continue to spread if we are not accountable for our actions. This has not been easy for anyone; however, we as a community can make a difference one day at a time. For now, take advantage of your family time, movie watching, house cleaning and organizing those closets and drawers. If you know anyone that is struggling, let us know. I want to thank you for your continued support and being part of our Eastpointe family.

PS. As of yesterday, there were 5,486 reported cases in Michigan with 132 reported deaths. In Macomb County, there were 732 cases with 24 reported deaths.

Be Healthy and Safe

Director of Public Safety

Good Afternoon All,
We have a new ambitious code enforcement officer. She can issue a number of violations that are enumerated within the motor vehicle code. Anything on the street, she can write.

Parking violations (fire route-handicapped)
Blocking sidewalks
Vehicles in disrepair parked in the street
Fire hydrant
Abandoned vehicles
Trailers parked in street
Unlicensed vehicles parked in street

If anyone has any issues with any of these, please contact Code Enforcement Officer Briana Curtis at 586-445-5100, Ext 2. She can be emailed at [email protected].
