A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR FOUTS:

Great union* employees at Sanitation & DPW makes Warren the best in the Metro area! We are the only city in this area that is still picking up everything including compost. All other surrounding cities are NOT picking up compost. What's next for these cities? Recycling? Garbage? These surrounding cities also have private sanitation services and we do not! In Warren we invested NINE MILLION DOLLARS on new one man mechanized sanitation trucks and garbage cans. These adhere to social distancing and are safer for the workers since they don't have to touch the trash. So while trash pick up in other cities is languishing Warren is completing the job.

My priority is always to serve and protect our citizens and that's why I also will NOT ticket people for lawn cutting and edging. That's an essential service and without that service we would have tall weeds, rats, mice, and mosquitoes. Our neighborhoods would become blighted and blight begets blight**. Warren has one of the largest populations of senior citizens and they depend upon a lawn service as do many people with various special needs due to injury and illness. I admire and commend Governor Whitmer's effort to keep us safe but prohibiting grass cutting is one that I must respectfully disagree with.

However, I urge Warren residents to try to get by without lawn cutting until it is absolutely necessary. At least for the next few weeks. The Governor's office responded to my lawn cutting question by saying: "No, EXCEPT IF THE SERVICE IS NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE THE SAFETY, SANITATION, AND ESSENTIAL OPERATIONS OF A RESIDENCE." My interpretation of this quote is that yes lawn cutting is an essential service! I do strongly support the Governor's efforts to keep us safe by social distancing.
*Only unionized sanitation city in the metro area with the exception of Grosse Pointe.

**That's why we will not be ticketing lawn services for grass cutting and edging. However, this does not mean we will not ticket for other services.

A Message from Mayor Fouts:

PLEASE BE SAFE by staying home this week with safe distancing. The virus is very dangerous and can last 3-4 days on surfaces!

I have requested some clarifications from the Governor's office regarding Warren residents concerns and questions............

1) LANDSCAPING Service ban-Apparently and unfortunately it is still in effect. However, my position is that in Warren if you are merely using a service for lawn cutting and trimming and no more than that, the city will not be issuing tickets. Anything else is not acceptable and we will adhere to the state mandate. I do respectfully disagree and view lawn service as an essential service for seniors and those with special needs.

2) UNEMPLOYMENT checks-They are currently overwhelmed with calls so it is strongly suggested that you log in and do your request over the internet rather than by phone. It will take you about 20 minutes to complete and then your check will be in the mail.

3) FASTEST WAY TO FILE ONLINE is if your last name begins with A-L file Monday, Wednesday or Friday. M-Z File Sun, Tues or Thurs. Anyone unable to do that may file on Saturday.

4) Governor has taken charge of getting needed supplies for Michigan hospitals and is getting Michigan companies to supply what is only supplied by China. Thank you Governor Whitmer!*

ALSO POSTMASTER ANSWERS:
4) I spoke with the Warren Postmaster and he indicated that mail may be delayed a day or two because of coronavirus illness and 14 day isolation. The main supplier for all Post Offices is in Topeka, Kansas. When they have a problem it affects everyone.
5) The Postmaster has assured me that the mail is safe and that there is no known record of anyone getting the virus from their mail.

HOSPITALS:
6) I spoke with some officials at various hospitals in the area and they indicate that they are still in need of PPE (personal protective equipment) and that includes N95 masks, gowns, sanitizing fluids, eye protectors, and other equipment. NOTE: I spoke with a nurse at Warren Ascension Hospital on 12/Hoover and she said they are in great need for N95 masks, gowns, and gloves. I PUT OUT A REQUEST FOR PPE FOR THAT HOSPITAL. *Help is on the way from Michigan suppliers.
7) Don't go to the hospital unless you are very sick as our hospitals are overwhelmed with coronavirus cases. It's somewhat dangerous to go to a hospital at this time. Do work on supporting our medical personnel with any support including masks, lunch catered from a local restaurant, and support for their sacrifice and work that they do! I have arranged for a place in Warren to supply our hospital people in Warren with lunch.

Please support PRESIDENT TRUMP on his strong recommendation that we all follow guidelines indicating that you wear a mask when outside your home. And stay home for the next 2 weeks. We must follow the suggestions of our President, the CDC, and our Governor. *

Thank You!

*On a conference call with the White House today President Trump informed us of the various equipment being received. Such as 100,000 ventilators are on their way. He stressed that the government is working diligently to make sure all hospitals are adequately supplied.

A Message from Mayor Fouts:
"Census Day was April 1 but there is still time to respond by filling out the simple questionnaire to be mailed out in about a week or two if you have not already filled it out*. This is important because each household that responds potentially generates $3,800 per year to Warren. That's a lot of dollars that go toward roads and public safety. It also helps maintain our political power in Lansing and Washington. Warren is the third largest city in the state and with that goes political power and with political power goes recognition for getting extra funding for various projects in the city including our detention basin. It also means that President Trump and other political figures are more likely to visit and help out Warren. This is non-partisan in that both parties support the census as do I. *NOTE: THE CENSUS ANSWERS ARE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL! It's only 10 questions and takes just a few minutes! We are in competition with Sterling Heights and it will be close so every response to the questionnaire helps out. Sterling Heights is favored because they have much more available land ( 20% more ). Thank You for your response!"

Remember, you can fill out your Census questionnaire online by visiting My2020Census.gov. Even if you haven't received your Census ID in the mail yet, you can complete your Census survey online by entering your home address! #CountMeInWarren

A Message from Mayor Fouts:
During this time of great crisis we need to focus on two words: Faith and Facts

I have an EMERGENCY HOTLINE 586-574-4526 for senior Warren residents as well as those with pre-existing conditions who are in need of food. Please for those only who are in great need! This will be coordinated with local food pantries and volunteers from Warren. Those wishing to help out can also call the HOTLINE number 586-574-4526. Indicate that you are able to assist and leave your phone number. THANK YOU!

03/25/2020

From Mayor Fouts:

***Update (3/25/2020): There are now enough volunteers to take care of the Food Bank assistance so there is no longer a need for the Michigan National Guard. Thus, the Michigan National Guard will not be needed in Warren. Thanks for the genuine concern that the Governor has given in making sure those in need get the food they need! At this time the need for the Michigan National Guard has been postponed, according to the Governor's office, until there is a need for food assistance.***

Good news for Warren residents! Governor Whitmer has issued an order that the Michigan National Guard assist Warren and two other cities on Wednesday. Details will be forthcoming but it is to assist people with basic needs due to the coronavirus. I just finished a conference call with two other local leaders and the commander of the Michigan National Guard, about the fact that Warren and two communities were chosen for this assistance. Indeed this is at least a little bit of good news for all of the communities chosen! More details to come!

Home - City of Warren

A Special Message from Warren Mayor Jim Fouts to Our Loyal and Critically Important Employees:

Good afternoon,

In response to the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” message given by Governor Gretchen Whitmer today. I strongly support her message to combat and curtail the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This means that Warren City Hall employees that are not classified as a critical infrastructure worker or essential service worker may with the approval of your department head work at home with agreed upon tasks that you will be able to perform at home.

Most city hall workers will be able to work remotely from home effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020. This will be with the concurrence of your department administrator. Some of you may choose to come to work for a brief time to get work to take home. Some may choose to be part of the limited group that will work at city hall. This will be decided by your departmental administrator.

According to Governor Whitmer’s order exceptions are: “workers who are necessary to conduct minimum basic operations are those whose in-person presence is strictly necessary to allow the business or operation to maintain the value of inventory and equipment, care for animals, ensure security, process transactions (including payroll and employee benefits), or facilitate the ability of other workers to work remotely”. Critical infrastructure workers are “workers who are necessary to sustain or protect life”.

Essential service people include: Police, Fire, Sanitation, Water, Waste Water Treatment, Payroll, election office workers, DPW, and Parks and Recreation workers.

Emphasis is that all of us must stay home unless it is deemed necessary to go to work. We must all keep a safe six feet distance from others. Cover your face and mouth when in a social setting. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Avoid shaking hands or any other close contact.

In my nearly 12 ½ years as Mayor of Warren this is the greatest challenge I have ever had to face. We are now dealing with a pandemic. While there are great challenges to the health of the people in our community, as well as the health of our economy, I am convinced that with great perseverance and a determination to overcome this monumental challenge, we will be on the road to recovery by the end of this summer, PROVIDING we follow the recommendations of the CDC, the Governor, and the President. That means to stay in our homes and also to show respect and consideration for those who may need help with groceries or medical supplies.

Let us all be our “brothers and sisters” keepers. May God Bless all of you in this great period of national adversity! We will prevail and we will overcome.

Sincerely,

Mayor James R. Fouts
City of Warren

A Message from Mayor Fouts:

I will be on WJR 760 AM radio today from 4-5 PM to discuss the city of Warren's preparation and reaction to the coronavirus pandemic. Warren was the first city in the metro area to take action against this virus. We were weeks ahead of other cities. My primary job is to serve and protect the citizens of Warren. This should be the primary job for all executives at the city, state, county, and national level. I'm proud of what our city has done in the past several weeks to prepare and protect both our citizens and our first responders.
We will be doing more in the weeks to come on this important issue.
