On September 4, 2021, there was a fire in the historic Genesee County Courthouse located at 900 S Saginaw St.

The origins of the fire are still under investigation. Luckily, the fire was contained to the 2nd Floor Clerk’s Office – Vital Records area. There is significant fire and water damage in that office as well as further water damage on the first floor from the sprinkler system.

To allow for appropriate remediation of all damage, the Genesee County Courthouse will be closed to the public on Tuesday September 7, 2021. The public will not be allowed to enter the Courthouse on that date.

Staff will be notified by their supervisors as to whether they should report on Tuesday.

The Board of Commissioners hosted a meeting today at Flint’s Historic Capitol Theatre with our local
government partners to discuss ways to make the American Rescue Plan funding have the greatest

Why is Genesee county so slow on covid-19 vaccines? Gov. Whitmer is your governor, give her a call and get some Vaccines.
As a small business owner in Genesee County, I ask you to immediately adopt this resolution set forth by our neighboring county, Tuscola County.
Times are very difficult for everyone these days.... Do you know who, where or when to call for resources you might need? Food distributions, medical supplies, school supplies. How about emergency assistance including SNAP or Medicaid or even just someone to talk to? CORE Learning Centers Case Managers from six counties have put together an “All County COVID 19 Community Resource Zoom Presentation.” This presentation is open to the public and is free of charge. Resources for the following counties will be covered: ALLEGANY County CATTARAUGUS County GENESEE/ORLEANS County LIVINGSTON County WYOMING County Covid-19 Community Resource Presentation via ZOOM Friday May 1,2020 2pm Registration is required. Please email [email protected] to register.
So... will Genesee county have an ordinance soon to protect essential workers from retaliation from their employers for being possibly being exposed to Covid-19 like other Michigan counties? Oakland and Wayne counties have them and they are required to be posted upon entry. They also include taking temperatures and procedures for when someone tests positive at the work site. Just asking because some of these employers are trying to retaliate against employees that don’t feel safe in their work environment.
i do not think many want to be on your board.
What is being done about the GCAC hours & why are they so limited!!!? We want answers!
Is it possible to increase the volume or enhance the quality of the sound system used by the Commissioners during meetings?
This was a great day for Genesee County! Thanks GC Board of Commissioners, thanks Culture Club!!! ❤🎶🌞🌮🍦🥤 #WALKINGTACOLUNCHEON
I believe Michigan's law governing special assessments for roads is unfair. Shouldn’t all people included in a Special Assessment have equal say in whether a petition for road improvements passes or fails when they are required to equally share the costs of those improvements? This is the link to my opinion. Please read it and if you agree, please let Governor Whitmer know by signing the petition. Also, please feel free to share this post on social media so other people will consider whether the current law on special assessments for roads is fair. Thank you.
Every one of them need to GO!!!!!!!
Due to no snow removal, I got stuck on my street and couldn't go to work. Why does it take 4 days to plow a subdivision in Davison?
Corruption runs deep within your ranks
