City Sponsored Programs

Gazebo Rental Information
The gazebo in Riverfront Park is available for rent. Fill in the application form and submit it to city hall.

Street Art Program
The City of Algonac is looking for interested artists (no residency requirements) to create clever creations from common objects around the city. These “art interruptions” offer passers-by a brief pause, prompting a moment of appreciation, humor, reflection or surprise. The goal of this program is to embrace the artistic talents of local individuals while displaying creative artwork throughout the community. Artists are encouraged to incorporate the character of the surrounding environment and neighborhood into their artwork. There is no cost to apply for the program. Artists are responsible for providing their own materials.

To participate, complete the application/design proposal and waiver and submit forms to cityclerk@cityofalgonac.org. IF you're a student, fill out this Student application. The city will contact you once your application has been approved.

 


Memorial Chair Program
In the summer of 2018, the City retired the Memorial Bench program because all the available spots for memorial plaques were full. In an effort to bring some color and new interest to the Riverfront Park boardwalk, the Adirondack Memorial Chair Program was initiated. Anyone interested in making a donation for a chair with a plaque can complete the application and submit the form to cityclerk@cityofalgonac.org.

To combat the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan, Governor Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order March 23, 2020. For at least the next three weeks, all Michigan businesses and operations must temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life, and all Michiganders must 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.

YOU CAN:

  • Go to the grocery store or pick up take-out food.
  • Go to the pharmacy to pick up a needed prescription.
  • Engage in outdoor activities like walking, hiking, running, biking.
  • Go to the hospital or secure any care necessary to address a medical emergency or to preserve your health or the health of a loved one.
  • Fill your car with gas.
  • Return to Michigan to a home or place of residence from outside the State.
  • Leave the State for a home or residence elsewhere.
  • Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian for needed medical care.

YOU MAY NOT:

  • Leave the home to work unless your employer designates you as a critical infrastructure worker.
  • Participate in any public gatherings.
  • Visit someone in the hospital, nursing home, or other residential care facilities (with limited exceptions).
  • Go to the mall or to restaurants.

BUSINESSES THAT REMAIN OPEN FOR IN-PERSON WORK MUST TAKE AGGRESSIVE STEPS TO MINIMIZE THE VIRUS’S SPREAD. THEY MUST:

  • Promote remote work to the fullest extent possible.
  • Restrict the number of workers present in-person on the job.
  • Keep employees at least six feet from one another to the maximum extent possible and enabling social distancing for customers who are standing in line.
  • Any other social distancing practices and mitigation measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.

Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly. The latest information is available at Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and CDC.gov/Coronavirus.   

For those who have questions about the state’s actions to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, please call the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-888-535-6136 between 8AM - 5PM daily.
