Utility Payments

The proposed 2018 - 2023 Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) for the City of Petoskey will be reviewed by the City Council at their Monday, August 21, 2017 meeting. This document serves as an instrument to identify needs and financing sources for public infrastructure improvements. It also informs city residents how the City plans to address significant capital needs over the next five years.

This document gives significant direction to the City on funding priorities. However, only those programs scheduled during the first year are financed and adopted as part of the Annual Budget. Programs slated for construction in subsequent years may be adjusted to reflect priority changes or funding constraints.

 Safest Cities in Michigan badge

SafeWise ranks Petoskey as #15 of the 20 safest cities in Michigan in 2017.  Each of the safest cities that made the 2017 lists boasts both violent and property crime rates that are significantly below the state and national averages.  To identify the safest cities in Michigan, SafeWise reviewed the most recent FBI Crime Report statistics from 2015, along with population data.  Cities with fewer than 5,000 residents as well as any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI were eliminated.  The mixture of repeat cities and those making their debut indicates a strong statewide commitment to cutting down on crime and ramping up public safety initiatives.
