To combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the entire state of Michigan continues to be under a mandatory “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order.  Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order (EO) 2020-77, extending her prior “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order through May 28th.  As with the prior orders, Executive Order 2020-77 limits gatherings and travel and requires all workers who are not necessary to sustain or protect life to stay home.  Note:  some restrictions from previous Eos have been relaxed or modified.  Please click the link to access Executive Order 2020-77 in its entirety -

As a result of Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order 2020-77, City of Saline facilities will remain closed at least through May 28, 2020.  All non-essential staff will continue working remotely to provide services to Saline residents, at least through Thursday, May 28, 2020.  The Saline Police Department, Department of Public Works and the Waste Water Treatment Plant & Drinking Water Plant will continue to be staffed.  These measures will not impact critical services such as drinking water, waste water, police, fire and emergency operations.

City staff are currently developing plans to re-open City facilities when the State of Michigan allows it.  The City will be sharing re-opening plans as we have more detailed direction from the State and move forward through this most recent extension of the Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order.  Additionally, the Saline Parks & Recreation Department will be modifying some of the current rules that have been put in place as a result of the pandemic.  Please click the link to the modified park rules - http://cityofsaline.org/?module=Page&sID=covid-19
