DEPARTMENT OF MUNICIPAL SERVICES 1231 Goldsmith, 734-453-7737
DOG OWNERS City Ordinances require that you pick up after your dog and that your dog is on a leash. When your dog does its “business” please make sure that you clean up after it. It is the neighborly thing and courteous thing to do. Please make sure that you take a “poop bag” with you whenever you are walking your dog.

If you need to order “poop bags” you can order Mutt Mitts, which are the same kind that the City uses in its neighborhood parks. You can order Mutt Mitts for home use on line at: http://www.pickupmitts.com/mm/default.asp?l=32
Just as a reminder; it is also very important for dog owners to make sure that they have a City dog license. This helps insure the proper vaccinations are on file and in the event that your dog gets away and is recovered by the Police, it will help return your dog quickly. If your dog is “chipped” and does not have a City dog license, it most likely will have to be taken to the Humane Society to have the “chip” read and you will have to pay a fee to retrieve your dog. Dog licenses are available at the City Treasurer’s Office at City Hall. Call 734-453-1234 ext. 245 for more information.
COMPOST COLLECTION
Yard Waste Pickup for 2011 continues through November 30th .
The City of Plymouth provides a composting disposal services for all city residents. This is at no additional cost to residents and is used as a way to dispose of grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste.
The recommended way to dispose of your grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste is to mulch the material. When these materials are mulched and left on the lawn, the natural waste recycling system is put to work. Mulching also saves you time, money and energy. The grass clippings also work as a natural fertilizer and they DO NOT CAUSE THATCH.
Composting materials are no longer accepted in landfills and cannot be collected in plastic bags.
The City of Plymouth requires all compost materials be placed in a 32-gallon container marked “COMPOST ONLY” or Kraft-type brown paper bags specifically used for yard waste. Containers or bags must not exceed 50 lbs. and must be manageable by one individual. Dirt is often mistaken for compost. This is not true since dirt is in its primary state.
CONDITIONS WHICH COMPOST IS NOT ACCEPTED: yard waste mixed with solid waste or recyclables, dirt rocks, and/or sod.
Persons with questions regarding the collection of yard waste compostable materials should contact the City of Plymouth Municipal Services Department at 734-453-7737

Call 811 Before Digging – It’s Free
When to call and what to expect - At least 3 business days prior to conducting excavation on your property, call MISS DIG at 1-800-482-7171 or by dialing 8-1-1. MISS DIG will notify the public utilities in your area so that they can locate and mark the approximate location of underground lines within your proposed work area. MISS DIG DOES NOT MARK LINES.

You will be asked several questions when you call the MISS DIG System, including:
¦Your name and phone number.
¦The contractor or person doing the work.
¦The geographical location (county, city, village, or township) of the work area.
¦The address where the work will be done.
¦The type of work being done; for example, installing a fence or building a deck.
¦Information about the project area that identifies the boundaries for the utility representatives; for example, locate underground utility lines 100 feet from the north side of the house; locate underground utility lines in the entire yard; or locate underground utility lines in the front yard.
¦When do you plan to dig.
Utility personnel or their contracted locators will arrive on site and mark the approximate location of underground wires. It is likely that more than one locator will mark lines prior to the dig-start date specified on your MISS DIG ticket.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact MISS DIG at 1-800-482-7171 or by dialing 8-1-1 and refer to the ticket number given to you during your initial call. Please visit www.missdig.org for additional information.

To complete a Vacation Check form; simply go to this link http://ci.plymouth.mi.us/DocumentView.aspx?DID=33 on the City’s web site. You can then complete the form and either scan it and email it back to the Police Department or drop it off 24 hours a day at City Hall.

The City of Plymouth Police Dept. also offers a bicycle registration service.

Dog Licenses/Leashes: For the safety of your dog and our citizens, dogs are required to be on a leash or in a fenced yard and are required to be licensed. Owners can be ticketed for dogs running at large and for not having a license. Dog licenses need to be renewed each year as they expire every December 31st.

Addresses-Residents should check to be sure that their addresses are easily visible in the day and at night. Emergency personnel must be able to easily locate your house at night in the event of an emergency. Reflective house numbers and adequate outside lighting can help improve visibility. Your local hardware or any home improvement store (Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc.) can help with these enhancements.

Street Lights-If a street light is out, residents may call our Municipal Services Department, and they will issue an outage report on the resident’s behalf. When calling, you must provide the address location, the number that is on the pole if there is one, and if the pole is metal, wood or ornamental.

DEPARTMENT OF MUNICIPAL SERVICES 1231 Goldsmith, 734-453-7737
DOG OWNERS City Ordinances require that you pick up after your dog and that your dog is on a leash. When your dog does its “business” please make sure that you clean up after it. It is the neighborly thing and courteous thing to do. Please make sure that you take a “poop bag” with you whenever you are walking your dog.

If you need to order “poop bags” you can order Mutt Mitts, which are the same kind that the City uses in its neighborhood parks. You can order Mutt Mitts for home use on line at: http://www.pickupmitts.com/mm/default.asp?l=32
Just as a reminder; it is also very important for dog owners to make sure that they have a City dog license. This helps insure the proper vaccinations are on file and in the event that your dog gets away and is recovered by the Police, it will help return your dog quickly. If your dog is “chipped” and does not have a City dog license, it most likely will have to be taken to the Humane Society to have the “chip” read and you will have to pay a fee to retrieve your dog. Dog licenses are available at the City Treasurer’s Office at City Hall. Call 734-453-1234 ext. 245 for more information.
COMPOST COLLECTION
Yard Waste Pickup for 2011 continues through November 30th .
The City of Plymouth provides a composting disposal services for all city residents. This is at no additional cost to residents and is used as a way to dispose of grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste.
The recommended way to dispose of your grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste is to mulch the material. When these materials are mulched and left on the lawn, the natural waste recycling system is put to work. Mulching also saves you time, money and energy. The grass clippings also work as a natural fertilizer and they DO NOT CAUSE THATCH.
Composting materials are no longer accepted in landfills and cannot be collected in plastic bags.
The City of Plymouth requires all compost materials be placed in a 32-gallon container marked “COMPOST ONLY” or Kraft-type brown paper bags specifically used for yard waste. Containers or bags must not exceed 50 lbs. and must be manageable by one individual. Dirt is often mistaken for compost. This is not true since dirt is in its primary state.
CONDITIONS WHICH COMPOST IS NOT ACCEPTED: yard waste mixed with solid waste or recyclables, dirt rocks, and/or sod.
Persons with questions regarding the collection of yard waste compostable materials should contact the City of Plymouth Municipal Services Department at 734-453-7737

Call 811 Before Digging – It’s Free
When to call and what to expect - At least 3 business days prior to conducting excavation on your property, call MISS DIG at 1-800-482-7171 or by dialing 8-1-1. MISS DIG will notify the public utilities in your area so that they can locate and mark the approximate location of underground lines within your proposed work area. MISS DIG DOES NOT MARK LINES.

You will be asked several questions when you call the MISS DIG System, including:
¦Your name and phone number.
¦The contractor or person doing the work.
¦The geographical location (county, city, village, or township) of the work area.
¦The address where the work will be done.
¦The type of work being done; for example, installing a fence or building a deck.
¦Information about the project area that identifies the boundaries for the utility representatives; for example, locate underground utility lines 100 feet from the north side of the house; locate underground utility lines in the entire yard; or locate underground utility lines in the front yard.
¦When do you plan to dig.
Utility personnel or their contracted locators will arrive on site and mark the approximate location of underground wires. It is likely that more than one locator will mark lines prior to the dig-start date specified on your MISS DIG ticket.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact MISS DIG at 1-800-482-7171 or by dialing 8-1-1 and refer to the ticket number given to you during your initial call. Please visit www.missdig.org for additional information.
