On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, residents of Dearborn and the Fairlane district of Dearborn Heights will join together to vote on a millage renewal proposal for Henry Ford College (HFC).
Here are some important facts about HFC and the millage renewal proposal:
Henry Ford College has a long tradition of providing a high-quality education to students at a low cost. Without the successful passing of this millage proposal, the College would experience budget shortfalls that would negatively affect staffing, facilities, student support services, and technology advancements across campus.
Please exercise your right to vote on November 6.

News from the City of Dearborn

Department of Public Information
Mary Laundroche, Director
February 27, 2018 Dearborn to individually test outdoor emergency sirens on Thursday, March 8
One-by-one tests will occur periodically during the day
DEARBORN, Mich. – The City of Dearborn will be individually testing outdoor emergency sirens on Thursday, March 8. Residents and visitors should not be alarmed if they hear a nearby siren sound. Siren tests will start about 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 8 and continue periodically throughout the testing window in different areas of the city. Dearborn has 19 emergency outdoor sirens. Emergency personnel and technicians will sound the alarms one at a time during this Thursday, March 8 testing to ensure each is working properly and can be heard appropriately. An alarm could be sounded more than once on Thursday, March 8. This is part of a periodic, more thorough testing of the emergency alert system. Dearborn will continue to hold citywide monthly tests on the first Saturday at 1 p.m. Outdoor emergency sirens are designed to quickly warn people who are out-of-doors about threats, including severe weather, such as tornados, so they can take cover. The City of Dearborn also uses the sirens when it declares a snow emergency in the winter, so residents know not to park their vehicles on the street. In an actual emergency– if time allows– information may also posted on the City website at www.cityofdearborn.org and on social media at www.Facebook.com/cityofdearborn. Dearborn Police also distribute emergency information to residents who register for it through its Nixle alert system. Sign up at Nixle.com. Because Nixle messages are controlled by the police, they are likely to be more timely in an emergency than the city’s website or social media. The City thanks residents for their patience during the upcoming siren testing. This work is part of ongoing efforts to ensure Dearborn provides top-quality safety measures for residents, workers and visitors in Dearborn.

Tomorrow is Miller’s First Annual Boat Trip!
Few reminders for the trip:
All chaperones, please read below:
So that we may work together for a safe trip, Diamond Jack’s River Tours would like you to be aware of the responsibilities required of your chaperones on board the vessels during school trips. We ask that the chaperones move among the students to supervise as assigned by the teacher.
Diamond Jack’s River Tours reserves the right to end the trip without refund, if the Captain observes the group is acting in an unsafe manner.
Following are the major points regarding improper behavior that the chaperones should be ready to act upon immediately. Chaperones should notify the teacher or crew of any ongoing problems.
