Important Updates

October 31, 2020

The City of Imlay City has received several inquiries from residents asking if Halloween will take place this year in light of COVID-19.

  • Halloween is not a city-sanctioned event, but rather a nationally-recognized holiday. Other than announcing the suggested hours (always 6 pm - 8 pm), the City has no further involvement. The City has no legal authority or basis to cancel Halloween or restrict the free movement of residents.
  • All residents who participate, however, should adhere to any public health recommendations from the Lapeer County Health Department. Be safe and operate common sense such as: wear a mask (not just a Halloween mask); social distance if not from the same household; any household with a positive case should not participate; any individuals with symptoms should not participate; and any other guidance given from public health officials.

Be smart, be safe, and have fun!

Tree City

Proud to be a Tree City USA Community

The Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.

Imlay City is one of 3,400 communities that has made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. The City has achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: Maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
