The DDA, through support from our sponsors, has produced bookmarks that will be available, free, at all local merchants.
The bookmarks include a calendar of events being held in the Village beginning with Memorial Day activities. You can also download the bookmark here.
Thank you so much to our sponsors for supporting this program. Our wonderful sponsors include Aunt Betty’s Restaurant, Lonnie’s Barber Shop, Lakeside Looks and Klave’s Marina. Please support their local businesses as they support the local community.
Our trash company is legally not allowed to empty 55 gal drums that are being used to store trash. The drums are a safety issue as they do not have handles. If you are using a drum to collect your trash please be aware that beginning next week, May 15th, they will no longer empty it.
The Village of Pinckney Village Council along with the Pinckney-Lakeland-Hamburg-Hell Chamber of Commerce, the Village Planning Commission and DDA are co-hosting a meeting to help develop a business growth plan for the downtown area. Everyone is very excited!
The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 15th at 6:30PM in the lower level of Village Hall.After brief introductions, the group will work on elaborating on the existing strengths-weaknesses-opportunities-threats (SWOT) analysis. In order to make the most of everyones time, we are asking participants to take a few minutes to review the existing plan and make notes about anything they would like to add. This way we can limit the discussion time and begin some actionable work plans. The SWOT can be downloaded here.
If you are interested in participating in this program but are unable to attend the May 15th meeting, please contact Village Hall with your name and email address and we will make sure you get on the communication distribution list.

Our rubbish company, Mid-Michigan Rubbish, has been bought out by Granger Container. The sale becomes effective November 1st. The only change that you, as a homeowner, should see is that the trucks are different; they are brown. The day of the week and the pick up schedule is exactly the same.. There will still be two trucks per week; one for regular refuse and one for the special pick up (recycling, yard waste, etc.).
Also to be noted, Granger said that they lay trash cans on their sides and place them on the grass on windy days so that they are less likely to roll into the roadway.
As always, contact Granger at 517-372-2800, or the Village Offices.

In 2003, President Bush signed the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act to help ease the economic and legal burdens on military personnel called to active duty. This mostly aids military families with expenses like mortgage payments and property taxes.
The Village of Pinckney wanted to do what they could on a local level and established the Civil Service Relief Policy for the Village of Pinckney Policy 2012-2. This policy will allow military personnel to apply for exemption from quarterly refuse and base fees incurred by property owners in the Village.
