Supervisor's Report: An Update to the Community - April 24, 2020
Posted on 04/24/2020
Supervisor LogoToday, Governor Whitmer extended the “Stay Home – Stay Safe” Executive Order (2020-59), through May 15. I would like to thank ALL OF YOU for doing your best to adhere to the restrictions that have been placed on our community - YOU have directly impacted the numbers for Northville Township!

This order begins the process of easing restrictions and allows the following:

Landscapers, lawn-service companies, and nurseries can return to work, adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Allows golf (but no golf carts), again consistent with sound social distancing.

Permits individuals to travel between their residences, although strongly discouraged.

Face masks or face coverings are now required to be worn by everyone when out and about, especially in “enclosed” public spaces.


How does this extension impact the Township and the services it provides residents, business owners and community members?


Our First Responders continue to work diligently to protect the community they serve; they have completed 39 Birthday Patrol visits, helping families celebrate birthdays and special events at home.

Parks, Recreation and Senior Services is offering virtual programing and continues Senior Transportation for medical trips.

Township Hall continues to be closed to the public, but staff are working remotely. The Board of Trustees, Planning Commission, and Zoning Board of Appeals are all utilizing virtual meetings.

The Township is actively preparing a protocol for opening Township Hall when permitted by a subsequent Governor’s Order.

COVID-19 IMPACT:
As of April 24: Wayne County (excluding City of Detroit) has 6,926 confirmed COVID cases and 618 Deaths: Northville Township has 95 confirmed cases and 10 deaths.

 Although the numbers have gone down, we remain concerned about the loss of life due to the COVID virus.

To provide current information to the residents we have launched a new Dashboard on the Township website to provide up-to-date information on Northville Township, Wayne County and the State of Michigan. You can check it out at: https://twp.northville.mi.us/COVID_19/township_updates

Stay the course. We will slowly recover and return to normal.
