How can I pay my Dearborn Heights water bill?

Featured in Pay Water Bill, City of Dearborn Heights

There are several options available to pay your Dearborn water bill: 

  • You can pay them in person at the Treasurer's Office in City Hall (Monday-Thursday 8:00am-5:00pm) – payments accepted are cash, check or money order.

    If you are visiting City Hall during non-business hours, there is a drop box located to the right of the main City Hall doors. Payments placed in the drop box will be posted the following business day.
  • You may also pay by phone by contacting (855) 340-4490 to make payments with a credit card (transaction fees apply).
  • All bills include a return envelope when they are mailed to residents. If you utilize this envelope, the payment goes directly to our bank. This process speeds up payment posting and eliminates delays.
  • Dearborn Heights participates in automatic withdrawal from your savings or checking account. Residents would still receive a copy of the water bill and the balance amount would be taken out of your account on the due date. This is the best option to avoid paying late penalties
  • Most bank and credit unions participate in online bill paying. Contact your financial institution for more information.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of Michigan

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

Who qualifies for an absent voter ballot in Michigan?

Featured in Register to Vote, State of Michigan

Due to the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3 in  November, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request  an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.

How do I get an absent voter ballot?

Featured in Register to Vote, State of Michigan

Your request for an absent voter ballot must be in writing and can  be submitted to your city or township clerk. You must request an absent voter ballot by mailing the application, large print application,  a letter, a postcard, or a pre-printed application form obtained from  your local clerk's office. Requests to have an absent voter ballot  mailed to you must be received by your clerk no later than 5 p.m. the  Friday before the election.

Once your request is received by the local clerk, your signature on  the request will be checked against your voter registration record  before a ballot is issued. You must be a  registered voter to  receive an absent voter ballot. Requests for absent voter ballots are  processed immediately. Absent voter ballots may be issued to you at your  home address or any address outside of your city or township of  residence.

After receiving your absent voter ballot, you have until 8 p.m. on  election day to complete the ballot and return it to the clerk's office.  Your ballot will not be counted unless your signature is on the return envelope and matches your signature on file. If you received assistance  voting the ballot, then the signature of the person who helped you must  also be on the return envelope. Only you, a family member or person  residing in your household, a mail carrier, or election official is authorized to deliver your signed absent voter ballot to your clerk's  office.

How do I determine where I go to vote in Michigan?

Featured in Register to Vote, State of Michigan

The Michigan Voter Information Center can help you determine whether you are registered to vote, where you cast  your ballot on Election Day and where your local clerk's office is  located. If you are not registered, you can follow the step-by-step  instructions to register. You may also learn about voting equipment in  your precinct, the voter identification requirement, and what you need  to know if you would like to work at the polls on Election Day.

Registered Michigan voters who have moved within 60 days of the  election may still vote at their previous address if they did not  register to vote at their new address by the close of registration for  this election.
