The City of Jonesville will begin Hydrant Flushing on Monday, April 23rd. Flushing will begin on the west side of the City and crews will work east. You may experience rusty or cloudy water or low water pressure. Residents are advised to run cold water in a bath tub or utility sink until it runs clear again. Flushing removes sediment and other deposits that accumulate over time inside of water pipes. It improves water flow to homes and businesses and assists the Fire Department with proper flows for fire suppression. It is also intended to assure that the water system, pumps, valves, and hydrants are working properly. Please contact City Hall at 849-2104 with any questions.

Annual Spring Clean Up Day
The City of Jonesville will be holding its 12th Annual Residential Spring Clean Up just in time to tidy the town for the 44th Annual Riverfest weekend. The pick up is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2018. Republic Waste Services will begin pick up at 7:00 A.M. Thus, items must be placed at the curb prior to 7:00 A.M. on May 5, 2018; however residents can start putting their items out starting April 28th. Remember, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure”, so you may see your items disappear before Saturday. If you are a “treasure hunter”, please be courteous when sorting and leave areas tidy.
This activity also allows residents the opportunity to comply with the Outdoor Storage “Junk” Ordinance without incurring additional disposal costs. We encourage residents to participate and help keep Jonesville an attractive community in which to live, work and play. Properties not in compliance with the junk ordinance may receive a citation.
There is no limit as to the amount of items placed at the curb. The following items that can be placed out for pick up are: manageable bags/boxes less than 50 lbs., furniture, toys, bicycles, home fixtures, building materials, doors, sections of fencing (must be cut down to fit into truck and lifted by one person), wheel rims, and small car parts. Unacceptable items include: Construction materials, yard waste, liquid or hazardous waste, tires, motor oil, and car batteries. Click the link below for details and for a list of acceptable items.
If you have some metal “junk” items, the Jonesville American Legion raises funds by picking up scrap metal to support projects like the Freedom Memorial. Please feel free to give Post Commander Bob Snow a call at 849-5066 to arrange pick up.
Cemetery Spring Clean Up
The City of Jonesville will begin spring clean-up in the Sunset View Cemetery after April 1st. Please remove flowers and decorations from lots by this date. Items that remain after this date will be removed and discarded.
Spring clean-up is expected to take a couple of weeks. It is recommended that visitors refrain from placing new décor until after April 20th so that it is not inadvertently removed.
