The City's closure will help protect the health and safety of both City employees and residents during the extended "Stay Home, Stay Safe" period.
The affected buildings include City Hall, Sterling Heights Public Library, Community Center, Senior Center, Nature Center, Department of Public Works and the two Recycling Centers. Although the major and neighborhood parks remain open, amenities such as park pavilions, playscapes, basketball courts, the skate park and soccer fields are closed. Park restrooms are also closed.
Curbside trash, yard waste and recycling service will continue on normally scheduled pick-up days. Sterling Heights Police Department Front Desk will still be open for resident reports. Residents should still dial 9-1-1 for all emergencies, and first responders including police and fire will still be on duty around the clock.

Residents with questions are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org. The City has published several ways residents can digitally transact business with the City at www.sterling-heights.net. These options include everything from paying taxes and bills online to pulling permits and licensing online and even checking out books and movies from the library or getting help with homework over the internet.
In addition, the City has established a hotline for seniors in need of assistance or help completing their census during this time. Those who require assistance can call 586-446-2757 and a city representative will pair them with a volunteer who can help. The city continues to partner with other agencies at the federal, state and county level to ensure we continue to be prepared.
