|Macomb utilizes CodeRED Emergency Notification system|
|The City of Macomb has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Macomb officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire city/county.
This system is only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database, this is an extremely important feature.
All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.

|CITY REMINDS RESIDENTS TO REMOVE SNOW FROM SIDEWALKS|
|The City of Macomb is reminding residents and property owners in Macomb to remove snow from sidewalks adjacent to their property. The repeated snow fall has created hazardous conditions on sidewalks for pedestrians, letter carriers and students. In particular areas, some individuals have been forced to walk in the street in order to get to schools and businesses.
The City of Macomb has an ordinance that makes it the responsibility of the owner or occupant of a business or residence to keep the sidewalks abutting the premises free from snow and other obstructions. "We want folks to know keeping sidewalks clear is not just an ordinance, it is the right thing to do", said Mayor Mike Inman. "It is so important for the safety of our students, mail carriers, delivery folks and pedestrians in general, to keep sidewalks clear of snow. It is especially important around schools and businesses," Inman added. Inman stated he understood snow removal can be difficult for some people, both physically demanding and an expense, "I would encourage people who live in neighborhoods where they know folks who are homebound, or otherwise unable to clear the snow from their sidewalks, to be good neighbors and help each other,where and when they can." Thank you for cooperation.
