Village Office CLOSED until further notice
Lions Park playground equipment CLOSED
Lions Park reservations subject to 10 persons maximum and social distancing measures
Village Parks OPEN However, the Stay at Home order directs Michiganders to stay in their homes unless they’re a part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store. If you utilize a park or trail maintain social distancing.
We will continue to provide essential services, such as sewer. Sewer payments can be made by mail, drop box or the drive through at Union Bank, 127 East Rd, Dimondale. We will be available to answer all questions by phone or email:
We will continue to monitor the situation and the information coming from the County and the State Health authorities. We want the Dimondale community to know that we make these decisions with the health, safety, and welfare of the community in mind. Providing basic municipal services is still our foremost goal, but we must act to prevent the community spread.

What's going on?
On March 10, 2020 the Governor declared a state of emergency in Michigan in response to the discovery of the first two presumptive positive cases of COVID-19.
What does that mean?
While a state of emergency sounds alarming, it is primarily a procedural step that allows state and local health officials to access additional resources for identifying, treating, and preventing the spread of the disease.
So, what should I do?
~You should be washing your hands for minimum 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
~You can reduce your chances of exposure by avoiding large gatherings of 100 people or more.
~If you are sick, stay home! Contact your healthcare provider.
~Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
~Cover your mouth and nose when coughing.
