The 2017 Arson Watch Event was a big success

Mid Michigan Waste Authority is again teaming up with several community partners to make the upcoming holidays a little greener with its annual Holiday Light Recycling Drive.


The upcoming Thanksgiving holiday will cause a one-day delay in residential collection of recycling, trash and yard waste for 18 MMWA member communities whose regular collection service day falls on the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, Nov. 23 or the Friday after the holiday. Residents who normally receive curbside collection services on Thursday or Friday should prepare and set out materials one day later than normal. Here is a listing of MMWA member communities that will be impacted by the Thanksgiving holiday.


Saginaw is one of four communities across the state of Michigan to have been identified for the strategies they employ to foster entrepreneurial growth and economic development, according to the annual eCities study. The study, conducted by iLabs, University of Michigan-Dearborn's Center for Innovation Research, identified the cities of Dexter, Saginaw, Sturgis and Tecumseh for their successes and efforts in contributing to Michigan's growth.


The City of Saginaw has received notification from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that the application for the Staffing for Adequate Fire Emergency Response (SAFER) grant has been denied. This most recent application was for a total award amount of $2.5 million. The 2016 SAFER Program was focused on hiring new firefighters to increase firefighter numbers versus previous SAFER grant years that provided funding for the retention of current firefighters.
