LEAF PICKUP - Leaf pickup will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the fall season.  PLEASE take the time to make separate piles of leaves and twigs.  The twigs clog up the leaf vacuum and are a problem.  

WINTER PARKING - The area between the sidewalk and road is Road
Right-of-Way!  During the months of November to April when snow plowing is necessary, parking in said Road Right-of-Way is at your own risk.

~Thank you from the Service Department~

     A Bit of history about McBain.....McBain began as a settlement around a sawmill in Riverside Township, founded by Gillis McBain and his brother John McBain in 1887. A station on the Toledo, Ann Arbor and North Michigan Railway named "Owens" opened on August 27, 1888 and a post office with the same name opened on September 10, 1888. Both were renamed McBain on September 17, 1889. McBain incorporated as a village in 1893 and as a city in 1907.
