Center Line City Hall
(near flagpole)



The City of Center Line does not remove snow and ice from city sidewalks in residential areas. Please make sure to clear all snow and ice from sidewalks near your home for everyone’s safety.

Shovel Snow and Ice

Bare concrete is the safest winter surface.

Shovel Early and Often

The most important step in deicing is to physically remove as much snow and ice as possible before applying a deicer.

Avoid Fertilizers

Fertilizers are not recommended as deicers, as they contribute to causing massive algae blooms in our waterways.

Limit your use of sand.

Sand doesn’t melt ice. Sand provides traction. When sand is washed off of our driveways and sidewalks into storm drains, it ends up in our lakes, rivers and streams, increasing the amount of sediment. This extra sediment degrades and even eliminates important habitats for aquatic organisms.

Utility Bill Changes

Your new utility billing cycle will be February, April, June, August, October, and December. These bills will now be due 30 days after being generated, or near the end of the same month. A larger format 8.5 x 11 letter size will allow the utility bill to contain more information and be more reader-friendly.

Other significant changes include eliminating interest charges on bills as well as the elimination of the Pool Fill Credit Program. For those residents who currently participate in the Pool Fill Credit Program, the City will offer an area maintenance meter to those residents at 50% of the City’s cost for the meter. Be sure to call City Hall to take advantage of this offer as it will only be offered in 2015.

Finally, the newly-created Pipe Repair Program will offer relief to customers who have experienced a significant water leak where the water did not exit the property via the City’s sewer system. Please contact City Hall for more details regarding this program  at 586-757-6800.
