PARK LOGO

NOTICE REGARDING THE COVID-19 VIRUS

Update April 1, 2020:  In keeping with the actions of the State of Michigan and several Michigan communities to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the East Tawas City Park will be closing the play structures in all of their park systems effective today, April 1, 2020.  The rest of the park areas will still remain open for your use.  Please continue to practice social distancing while enjoying our parks and other open spaces and do your best to remain at least six to ten feet away from others.

As you all know, we are in the middle of a worldwide health pandemic unlike anything most of us have faced in our lifetimes. The City of East Tawas and the East Tawas City Park are committed to the health of our residents and visitors and are taking precautions to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus with guidance from state and county health officials.  These measures will not impact critical services such as drinking water, police, fire, emergency operations, or waste collection; however some City services have been modified.
 

  • As of noon March 13, 2020 the East Tawas City Hall, Community Center and Library were closed to the public and will remain closed until further notice. At this time, all Community Center activities have been postponed or cancelled.  City offices will remain open but will be closed to the public. Comments for public meetings may be submitted via letter (760 Newman Street, East Tawas, 48730) or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • In compliance with Governor Whitmer's "stay home, stay safe" executive order, the Park office will remain closed to the public until further notice.  We have received many calls from customers asking if they can come up and use their trailers. Keep in mind the Governor's order limits travel to only "essential" travel.  Although we realize that some RV's in the campground are the summer home for several customers and they may have no other place to go at this time, there should be little or no other camping traffic for the duration of the order.  Therefore, the office will only be staffed Monday through Friday during this period to field phone calls, emails, receipt payments, etc.  Existing customers can pay their lot rent by sending a check in the mail.  For customers that may be in our area that need to pay their lot rent, we will also continue to provide payment envelopes on the office door for your use.  Payment envelopes can be placed in the mail chute to the right of the office door.

  • During the next few weeks, our City Day Parks will remain open for your use. However,  please be aware that our day parks and the playground equipment in them ARE NOT sanitized. We ask that you practice social distancing while enjoying our parks and other open spaces and do your best to remain at least ten (10) feet away from others. 

While we understand the City’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 may cause some frustrations, we are committed to keeping our employees and the public safe while still delivering City services. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation in consultation with health officials to determine if further changes to operations are needed.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.  If you have any questions, please contact City hall at 989-362-6161 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
