Stay Safe and Stay Warm.
The Village of Sebewaing (Village) residents pay for the Brush Pile located on Liken Road through their property taxes. This is a privilege for the residents and property owners of the Village. The Brush Pile is intended for branches and brush that will burn easily.
The Brush Pile has been abused by non-residents and contractors dumping large logs and tree roots that do not burn easily. The Village is paying employees to move these items which causes wear and tear and potential damage to Village equipment.
Effective September 25, 2023, as approved by the Village Council, the Brush Pile will be locked. Residents and property owners can request access, by appointment, to the Brush Pile by contacting:
Village of Sebewaing
222 N. Center Street
Sebewaing, MI 48759
Dumping of brush along Liken Road outside of the locked gates of the Brush Pile location is considered littering. The grassy area along Liken Road is only for grass clippings and leaves. A local farmer is using his equipment to spread the grass clippings into the field. Brush dumped in the grassy area will damage his equipment.
Grass clippings can be placed in the designated area beside the DPW buildings on South First Street. Burning of grass clippings and leaves is prohibited in the Village.
The DPW will pick up curbside brush as their workload allows. Limbs/stick needs to be placed parallel to the street in manageable sized piles. Limbs/stick should be no longer than 8' long and 6" in diameter.
Be sure to get the proper zoning/building permits for all improvements being done before improvements begin. Please stop at the Village Municipal Building at 222 N Center Street, call 989-883-2150 or our email firstname.lastname@example.org. Speak with our Zoning Administrator-Matt Bumhoffer for the appropriate permit required for your upcoming improvements.
