July 10th UPDATE: Governor Signs Executive Order Requiring Mask Use in all Indoor Public Spaces
 

On July 10, 2020 Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed executive order 2020-147, which reiterates that individuals are required to wear a face covering whenever they are in an indoor public space. It also requires the use of face coverings in crowded outdoor spaces. Most significantly, the order requires any business that is open to the public to refuse entry or service to people who refuse to wear a face covering, with limited exceptions. 

According to Governor Whitmer’s FAQ for EO 2020-147, this requirement applies to Pittsfield Township:

“Q: Are local and state government offices that are open to the public subject to the requirement to refuse service as outlined in section 3 of Executive Order 2020-147?

Yes. No business, including local and state government offices open to the public, may provide service to a customer or allow a customer to enter its premises, unless the customer is wearing a face covering as required by this order.”

MARCH 18th UPDATE:  Support for Small Businesses

Congress passed legislation that makes $1 billion available to the Small Business Association (SBA) to provide "low-interest loans to small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and nonprofits that have suffered substantial economic losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic". Once granted, an SBA Economic Injury Disaster declaration will make disaster loans of up to $2 million available to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

In the interim, small businesses that could benefit from SBA loans are encouraged to start collecting the information they’ll need to complete and submit their application. 

Examples of information needed can be found by visiting https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/Information/PaperForms.

For additional information or to obtain help preparing the loan application in advance of the declaration, please contact the Michigan SBA offices in Detroit or Grand Rapids: https://www.sba.gov/offices/district/mi/detroit.

The Michigan Small Business Development Center can also provide resources for small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Visit their website https://sbdcmichigan.org/small-business-covid19/ for additional information.




MARCH 15th UPDATE:

As COVID-19 continues its aggressive spread through our community, we are revising our modified hours, announced Friday March 13th, to establish a full closure – similar to the City of Ann Arbor –of all administrative buildings to the public.

Emergency personnel (police and fire) will continue their operations uninterrupted, but if the public wants to receive non-emergency services, they are requested to either visit the township website or call into the appropriate department for assistance.

Township employees will be working and accessible either remotely from their homes or in staggered shifts at their offices to limit interpersonal exposure in an effort to control the spread of the pandemic.

All township events scheduled through end of April, including recreational programming, Passport to Pittsfield (P2P), and the Sustainability Forum, are being cancelled based on the Governor’s recommendations.

We further recommend that all non-township public meetings scheduled to be held at either Township Hall (6201 W. Michigan Avenue) or Community/Senior Center (701 W. Ellsworth) be cancelled through April 6th.

We thank our community residents, businesses, and other stakeholders for their patience and cooperation as we pull together during these unprecedented times to provide for the safety and well-being of every individual.

MARCH 13th UPDATE:

During the period of State of Emergency declared by the Governor and in an effort to minimize exposure for employees and residents to control the aggressive spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Washtenaw County and the State of Michigan, Pittsfield Township will be providing for modified business hours for non-emergency personnel and services. Public Safety (police and fire) are categorized as emergency services and personnel so will, as such, continue providing uninterrupted services.

In order to provide for continued non-emergency services for our residents and businesses, Pittsfield Township has implemented a COVID-19 Emergency Limited Exposure Operations Plan that will, while limiting interaction to the public based on the modified business hours, allow employees to either work remotely or in shifts to, once again, minimize risk of exposure.

As we all know, this is an unprecedented situation that potentially threatens the safety and well-being of our employees, residents, and businesses in Pittsfield Township, our region, and state. As such, we will do our best to address the issues as they evolve and deal with scenarios and situations we have never experienced and/or considered until this time. However, the central mandate of the Supervisor’s Office is to protect the safety and well-being of our community and that is the intent of both our modified hours and internal emergency protocol being adopted by all non-Public Safety/emergency personnel at Pittsfield Township.

Pittsfield Charter Township will continue to be in close communication with the Washtenaw County Health Department, which is working closely with state and federal health officials, in order to appropriately monitor and address the township’s response as it relates to its operations and the risk of contact with individuals locally who may have been exposed or may have/carry the disease.

These modified business hours for non-emergency personnel and services will be effective, Monday March 16th and remain in place until further notice.
