Welcome to the Village of Pinckney Website!

Pinckney is located in Putnam Township in southern Livingston County. The area was first settled in 1827 by William Kirkland who moved from New York with his family, including wife Caroline who gained fame (and a bit of notoriety) with her writings about the area. With his brother-in-law, James Stansbury, Kirkland formed the William Kirkland Company, which organized the village. Kirkland named the community after his brother, Charles Pinckney Kirkland, a New York attorney. The village was platted in 1837 and incorporated as a village in 1883.

Water bill concerns

We have received a couple of calls today regarding high water usage. A couple things to consider on your end.
1) The December reads were done between December 9 and 14, 2013 due to the holiday. So there could be up to 2 additional weeks of usage in your quarterly bill for January – March 2014 (as it would have pulled the usage when we read between March 20 and 25).
2) Even what you think is the smallest leak (a drip, a running toilet, a water softener regenerating) pulls a lot more water than you think.
If after these two considerations you still think the usage seems high, then please call the Village Hall.
Thanks for your understanding.

Memorial Day Parade

Request for Proposals – Broker/Realtor

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) voted to request proposals for a broker/realtor to market and sell the Main Street parcel owned by the DDA.  The goal is to have the parcel developed into retail or a combination of retail and residential site.  The southern portion of the parcel, to be retained by the DDA, will be developed into municipal parking.

Water Softener Rebate Program

We’ve revived the water softener rebate program to encourage compliance with our ordinance, which states that water softeners cannot be discharged into the sewer line. If you have moved to the Village since 2008, you might want to check this out! Eligible property owners can receive a 50% rebate, up to $300, for installing a drywell or toward the purchase of a no-discharge water conditioner. See below for details about the program. Still have questions? Call or email us at Village Hall.
