Welcome to Clare! We're glad you're here!
The City of Clare provides water, sewer, garbage pick-up, yard waste pick-up, and curbside recycling to its residents. To start these services, please visit the City Clerk's Office in Clare City Hall, 202 West Fifth Street. To turn on the water and sewer utilities during normal DPW service hours (8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday), there is a $25 fee, and after hours service is $50. If you are a new renter, there will be a $150 deposit, which is refundable after 12 consecutive, on-time monthly payments. This deposit is waived only if the account is placed in your landlord's name.
We've prepared a New Resident Welcome Kit for you to use as a handy guide to City services. We encourage you to print it off and refer to it as you get acquainted with our services. If you have any utility-related questions, please call Mary Warner, Utility Billing Clerk, at 989/386-7541, extension 201.
