Update to Coronavirus Plan

Due to the new orders from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the City of Bessemer has updated our coronavirus response plan. There should be very change to the way residents have been interacting with the city. We do have one worker still in the office to take cash payments and frequently check the dropbox. In person appointments will have to switch to over the phone or zoom as two of our three city hall workers are working from home. There may also be a slight delay in us returning your phone calls but we have updated our phones to minimize this issue.

The library plan will be updated and sent out soon. The library is currently open for curbside pickup only. Melissa is able to help with printing and other needs if you give her a call.

We thank you for your patience through these ever changing times and hope that you and your loved ones can stay healthy.
