October 31 is the deadline for Dearborn residents to order a free 2016 City of Dearborn Calendar.
Residents have until midnight Saturday to place an order online at www.cityofdearborn.org, or to order a calendar by calling the voice mail box at (313) 943-3003. Those who call the voice mail box (because they are without access to the internet) are asked to only give the address of their house (complete street address and zip code, plus their apartment and flat number if they have one), “and speak slowly, make it clear” to the city staff listening to it. The city advises that online ordering is efficient and accurate, and saves the taxpayers on the expense of staff time.
Calendars will be mailed by Dec. 30. Since it takes two or three weeks to do the calendar mailing, residents who are late in receiving their calendars are asked to call the Department of Information office by the end of the January if they wait three or four weeks without receiving their calendars.
The City of Dearborn Calendar includes important dates such as City Council meetings, Memorial Day Parade, City Beautiful Commission meetings, Fire Department Pumpkin Patch, Motor City Brass Band concerts, Blockbuster Film Series dates, school openings and closings, holidays and other upcoming events such as trash curb pickup’s yard waste collection and service days. The calendar also includes the curbside recycling schedule, phone numbers for government departments, as well as containing city budget information.
The City of Dearborn Calendar also is full of photos, from last year’s activities in the city, and of Dearborn’s residents in their homes. The calendar also contains the city’s property maintenance rules.
Calendar orders are limited to one-per-address. However, at the time the calendars are mailed, residents who want extras can pick them up from the stack of calendars that will be in the Department of Public Information in Suite 16 of the Dearborn Administrative Center, or from the stack of calendars at the Henry Ford Centennial Library.
The Dearborn Administrative Center sits on the western edge of the city’s municipal complex at 16901 Michigan Ave., west of an athletic field between it and the Henry Ford Centennial Library, which is located at 16301 Michigan Ave. The Ford Community and Performing Arts Center is located on the eastern edge of the complex at the southwest corner of Michigan Avenue and Greenfield Road, with the entrance to the theater and cultural arts wing of The Ford Community and Performing Arts Center being across the parking lot from the Dearborn Police Headquarters and 19th District Court.
Dearborn’s municipal complex is on the south side of Michigan Avenue (U.S.-12), generally across from Ford World Headquarters, and just east of Exit 6 off Southfield Freeway (M-39).
