Please be advised. North area power outage. Consumers is in the area

Be advised, there is a power outage in the north end of our Township. We do not know the cause but have seen Consumers Energy crew in the area diagnosing the issue. At this point the estimated restoration time is 4.5 hours, but that is subject to change.

Grand Blanc Township has been informed by Emterra that they continue to suffer a reduced workforce because of ongoing positive COVID-19 tests and forced quarantines of impacted employees to comply with the government mandated CDC and MDHHS guidelines. This will result in only one (1) available truck/crew for recycle pick-up for the Township, which is normally completed by four (4) trucks/crews.
With the volume of recycle last week it took Emterra employees six (6) days to complete the route throughout the Township. With the pandemic impacts continuing to cause the shortage of staffing for Emterra, the single crew will be taking longer to complete the recycling pick-up again this week. Please be patient and know the drivers are doing their best to get through their route as soon as possible.
Grand Blanc Township continues to explore alternatives to this unfortunate situation, and we will provide updates as they become available. Please understand that this situation is beyond the control of the Township and Emterra. Emterra is currently working on providing a recycling drop off facility and the address will be published as soon as available for those not wanting to wait for curbside pickup.
Our website www.twp.grand-blanc.mi.us and page www.facebook.com/gbtwpmi/ will be updated regularly.

A message from Dan Garmin, Emterra Representative

Emterra will be out today trying to finish the recycling in Grand Blanc Township. So sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.
While I am just in sales/customer service, I know management is working to get people back, hire more people and provide a safe work environment for the workers. And doing these things while sticking to the union rules and MDHHS protocols. For those that understand these issues “thank you”. For those who don’t understand the covid issues “I understand” it has been a long 14 months and it makes me very upset with all the things this covid has effected. Have a great weekend and be safe.

05/07/2021

Emterra is working on recycling pick up through tonight and into Saturday. Thanks
