E-Mail Spoofing Warning

The City of Linden wants to make you aware of an email spoof that is impersonating City of Linden domain name, including the e-mail addresses from staff, police, and City Council.

The spoof involves an email falsely purporting to be from the City of Linden, an employee, or Council members describing a fictitious "invoice" with a link or attachment. If you received such an email, please be aware that it did not come from us, as we do not send invoices by e-mail (with the exception of utility bills that some residents receive by e-mail on a quarterly basis with the subject line “Utility Billing”) . In addition, note that the email may contain a link to a computer virus or other malware. You should not open the email, link, or attachments, or respond to it in any way.

Given the apparent scope of this spoofing scheme, we are taking the unusual step of posting this notice. We continue to maintain the highest level of technology security and wish to emphasize that the scheme is not the result of any compromise to the security of our systems, but are unable to fully prevent this impersonation. If you have any questions or would like to confirm any correspondence before opening, please contact the City of Linden office staff by phone at (810) 735-7980.

Snow Clearing Reminder

The snow may have melted for now, but with more winter weather likely just around the corner. The City of Linden has an important reminder to keep sidewalks in front of your home or business clear of snow and ice this winter. The elderly, disabled, and school children especially, need sidewalks to be cleared for safe passage during the winter months. Your neighbors are counting on you! Please do your part to maintain a safe and accessible pathway by clearing your snow and ice within 24 hours of accumulation. 

As you are clearing your sidewalks and driveways, do not push, plow, or shovel snow into the street, as this is illegal, interferes with the snow removal and clean up process, and can create driving hazards. Finally, please remember to keep fire hydrants clear of snow.


 12.08.020 Sidewalks to be cleared

A.  The occupant of any premises, or the owner of any unoccupied premises, is required to keep the sidewalks in front of or adjacent to such premises, so far as is practicable and reasonable, clear from snow, ice, rubbish, excessive dirt or any encumbrance, to facilitate pedestrian use.  Whenever any snow or ice has fallen or accumulated, it shall be cleared within twenty-four hours after it has fallen or accumulated.

B.  No person shall place, store ro exhibit any goods, wares, merchandise or material upon any public sidewalk in the city.

C.  No person owning, building or repairing any house or other building shall permit any lumber, brick, plaster, mortar, earth, clay, sand, stone or other material to remain on the sidewalk after sunset of the day in which it was placed there, without permission, in writing, from the chief of police, subject to any safeguards he may prescribe, (Ord 79 Sec II, 1976)

12.08.030 Failure to clear.  If any occupant or owner neglects or fails to clear ice, snow, debris or other obstructions from the sidewalk adjoining his premises within the time limited, or otherwise permits such obstructions to accumulate on such sidewalk, he is guilty of a violation of this chapter and in addition, the city may cause the same to be cleared and the expenses of removal shall become a debt to the city from the occupant or owner of such premises, and shall be collected as any other debt to the city.  (Ord 79 Sec III, 1976)
