As many Michiganders are hitting the roads for the upcoming 4th of July weekend, we want to remind everyone of a few safety tips.
1) When it comes to driving; always watch your speed and following distance and NEVER text and drive. Always buckle up and NEVER drink and drive. There will be added patrols, targeting OWI/OUID driving, throughout Michigan.
2) If you plan on setting off fireworks; please do so safely! Remember, alcohol and things that go boom don't mix. Bring home as many digits as you left with! Also, be courteous to those around you and remember 11:45 pm is the cutoff.
3) If you are going to have a campfire, be extra careful. Things are dry and it doesn't take much for one to get out of control.
4) If your weekend plans include spending time on the water; don't mix boating and alcohol. Make sure everyone has a flotation device and pay attention to your surroundings.
Be safe and enjoy your holiday weekend. And remember, as always, we will be here if you need us! 🇺🇸

National Night Out is a yearly community building event that promotes strong police and community partnerships. Over the last few years thousands of community members have joined us for law enforcement demonstrations, family activities, refreshments, and conversations.

Unfortunately, as a result of continued safety concerns involving COVID-19 we have decided to postpone this years event.

We hope to reschedule the event later in the year. Thanks for your understanding and continued support.

Are you looking for an opportunity to serve your community? Grand Blanc Township is looking for new election inspectors.

Election Inspectors are paid for attending mandatory training prior to Election Day and working on Election Day. The Clerk's Office cannot staff 22 precincts on Election Day. We need Election Inspectors to make our elections run smoothly. They truly are the backbone of our democracy and we are very fortunate to have a wonderful group of Inspectors.

• Must be 18 years of age. (A person who is 16 or 17 years of age may be appointed with special conditions.)
• Must be a qualified and registered elector of the State of Michigan.
• Must be able to work be able to work from 6:00 a.m. to approximately 10:00 p.m. on Election Day.
• Must have transportation to and from polling location.
• Must have a good clerical ability to perform duties.
• Must have computer experience.
• Must attend a mandatory training class prior to working their first election.

Election Day Duties
• Assist in opening and closing the precinct.
• Assist voters throughout the voting process by checking their identification, verifying the voter is eligible to vote and in the correct precinct.
• Record the voter in the electronic poll book (laptop computer).
• Assign and issue a ballot to the voter.
• Work with the Chairperson to resolve any issues that arise during the day.

Please contact the Charter Township of Grand Blanc Clerk at (810) 424-2602 or Deputy Clerk at (810) 424-2644 to request an Election Inspector Application and/or to seek additional information. It is a very rewarding community service experience.

Here is the latest from the National Weather Service. We have the potential for strong storms, later in the day! Please pay attention and be prepared.

Numerous severe storms expected this afternoon with all severe hazards including damaging wind gusts around 70 mph or greater, large hail up to one inch, and a few tornadoes.
Thunderstorms will be moving fast today, which means you may have less time than usual to react and seek shelter when a warning is issued. This is especially important to keep in mind for more vulnerable places, like mobile homes, during severe weather. Consider executing your safety plans when a watch is issued and seek more substantial shelter.

*****ROAD CLOSED *****

Construction has begun on Hill Rd., between Saginaw and Center. The widening project is expected to run through October. Some drivers seem to have trouble understanding just what the signs (pictured below) actually mean.
“Road Closed to Through Traffic”- the road is closed to ALL traffic, unless you live in this stretch of road or are going to a business, within the stretch! Those are the only reasons that allow you to enter the construction zone!
“Detour”- The Genesee County Road Commission was kind enough to plan a route to get around the construction zone. They have placed orange signs, pointing the way. Center Rd. to Maple Ave. to Dort Hwy. or vice versa.
“Local Businesses Open”- The few businesses in this stretch are open. Now that doesn’t mean you can enter, from Center Rd., saying you’re going to Walgreens. Or I just stopped at Walgreens and now I’m heading home somewhere east of Center Rd.
Please use common sense. This closure is to keep the workers safe and speed up the project. Our officers will be monitoring the area to ensure the signs are obeyed and the workers go home safe. Thank you for your cooperation.

UPDATE: (June 8, 2020 - 1:45pm)

Due to our water emergency from this morning, residents may be experiencing discolored water as our system pressure builds to normal levels. This is caused by turbulation in water mains from the flow of water changing directions as we switch water districts around to make sure adequate water supply is met community wide. The discolored water is safe and the DPW is working on flushing the system now to clear it up. Flushing your water line at the lowest level of your home in either a bathtub or laundry tub will also help.

***

Please see the below message from the Grand Blanc Township DPW:

Grand Blanc Township is aware of a water system pressure issue in the southeast portion of Grand Blanc Township. This area is east of Holly Rd and south of McCandlish Rd. We are working with Genesee County on restoring water pressure. Please conserve water as much as possible until adequate water pressure is re-established.

We want to thank the entire Grand Blanc community for making this evenings event such a success! Also thanks to our law enforcement partners. This was truly a group effort. It was amazing to see so many people come together for a common cause. After the walk, Chief Wiles listened to the concerns of several residents. There was some great conversation that we hope will continue, as we move forward.

06/05/2020

This afternoon, starting at 5:30pm, a protest/march is taking place in Grand Blanc Township and Grand Blanc City. Both police departments were asked, by the event’s organizers, to play an active role to provide assistance in coordinating this community event. The Grand Blanc Township and City of Grand Blanc Police departments, along with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office and the Michigan State Police will partner with the Grand Blanc community to ensure a safe and peaceful protest. This is an excellent opportunity for everyone to come together for meaningful dialog on an issue that affects all members of our community.

Happy National Donut Day!

Contrary to popular belief, loving donuts isn’t a requirement for being a police officer! Most officers love of donuts can be traced to their early childhoods. It was only after becoming an officer, they had to be careful with the powdered ones!

Over the last week, we've seen a number of demonstrations in mid-Michigan -- marches, protests, rallies and press conferences. Community leaders, everyday people, police officers all said they’re agreement that what happened to George Floyd can never happen again.

We had some excitement yesterday! Thank you to the Grand Blanc Township and city police and Fire department for saving 6 baby ducks that fell through the sewer grate. Mama duck was there all morning and was happy to be reunited with her babies. 🦆
On behalf of the PGR of Michigan I would like to offer our thanks to your department for assisting us yesterday by blocking traffic on Holly Rd at Culver's so we could get to Great Lakes National Cemetery safely and on time. I wish I had taken the officers name but I didnt. Again thanks to your department and the officer sent to assist us. Patches PGR Ride Captain
On behalf of the PGR of Michigan I would like to offer our thanks to your department for assisting us earlier today by blocking traffic on Holly Rd at Culver's so we could get to Great Lakes National Cemetery safely and on time. I wish I had taken the officers name but I didnt. Again thanks to your department and the officer sent to assist us. Patches PGR Ride Captain
I just want to thank all of you for your hard work and dedicated service in keeping our community safe! I pray for you all for your safety and well being.
I am disappointed in the Grand Blanc Township police department. Today while waiting in line at a store in the township another patron asked a uniformed officer in the store why she was not wearing a mask. The officer responded that she simply "did not care anymore". This should not be a choice by the very people that are sworn to protect and serve the community. If you do not care in doing your part to protect the community then perhaps that officer is better suited in a different profession.
I want to take a moment and thank the Grand Blanc Township Police Officers for keeping our township safe and showing up quickly. My husband had to call them for some help this evening in Ottawa Hills and they arrived super fast and was able to give a very happy ending to what could have been a horrible situation. They know what the call was for and why I am not posting that information. 🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼
They totally ran the red light. After stopping of course but still... I only began taking a video because one of them was wearing a sonic the hedgehog helmet LOL At Cook and Holly Rd
This morning my granddaughter lost her dog in the Grand Blanc areas there is a $500.00 reward if you find him and return him plz . Manson /Cook school area. Please anyone see him call 8108750918 or 8105150489 anytime of the day or night . Thank u
Staging for a birthday parade in our neighborhood. Way to go Grand Blanc Twp Police and Fire! Nice to see something special to brighten a child's special day.
Celebrating National Telecommunicator Week. Unit sending, info relaying, people helping, emergency handling or anything that needs to be done... the unsung heroes, the dispatchers. Thank a dispatcher
Out of curiosity since I have been reading a lot of mayors, township supervisors etc stating they will not enforce parts of the governors new order, where does the GBTPD stand? I have neighbors that are old, cripple and have never mowed their lawns and can’t wait till may 1 or especially up to June 15 as the governor has stated she is looking at. So will you be out arresting or fining an individual that will be taking care of their neighbors lawns?
