Leaf pickup:

We will begin on Tuesday, October 1, 2019.  The DPW will pick up on Tuesdays and Thursdays depending on how many leaves are out.  

Remember to separate twigs and sticks into a separate pile and rake leaves to the edge of the pavement but not on the pavement. 


Winter Parking:

Per City of McBain Ordinance:  From November 1 to May 1 No parking is allowed on any Street between 2:00am and 6:00am.  No moving of snow onto streets or alleys is allowed at any time.  Parking on area between the street and the sidewalk is at your own risk.


In the next couple of weeks, you will notice some work going on in the city.

The city has approved several tree's that need to be removed and/or trimmed. With that you will notice some extra traffic and maybe an occasional lane closure. We understand that this may cause some inconvenience but for the safety of our residents and visitors this is needed. 

Also, there will be several sections of sidewalk that will be torn out and replaced. Again, bare with us as we work on this. The sidewalks are a joint venture between the City and DDA.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make McBain safe for all. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.

 Thank you,

Mayor, Joey Roberts

     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.
