Updated Wednesday, April 29 at 3:30 p.m. This page will be updated as soon as possible if the status of any of these programs changes.
Like so many things right now, our operations may have to be modified for the safety of our customers and personnel. To help us keep up on communicating such changes, we are NOT updating every place on this site where a given facility or service may be mentioned. Most pages will continue to reflect our ordinary operations.
Information on this COVID-19 Updates page is UPDATED FIRST when things change, so information here overrides any differing information you might find on
~ other pages of this site
~ our telephone system
~ our social media feeds, and
~ on related webpages and social media feeds.
This COVID-19 Updates page is the most up-to-date and complete source of information on the status of the Emmet County DPW’s facilities and services during this time.
We wish you good health and good spirits.
–The Emmet County Department of Public Works Team
All of our facilities and services are OPEN their usual hours and essentially handling their usual materials!
