$10 per child (ages 0-8)

NO ON-SITE REGISTRATION. Registration must be received in advance. Register online at www.howellrecreation.org, call 517/546-0693, or in person at 925 W. Grand River, Howell.

This outdoor event will be held depending on the weather Thursday April 17th, 2014. A rain date has been scheduled for Tuesday April 22nd, 2014. For cancellation information due to inclement weather please contact Howell Area Parks and Rec at 517 546 0693.

The Howell Area Parks & Recreation Authority invites you to the most unique night-time Easter Egg Hunt and spring time celebration in Livingston County for
children ages 0-8.

For those of you unfamiliar with this one-of-a-kind outdoor event it all begins with a fly-over by helicopter and a massive drop of thousands of soft white marshmallows and a few special ones that can be turned in for age-specific prizes.

After the marshmallow drop, we'll attempt to break the Guinness World Records for the Largest Bunny Hop and then move directly into a night-time Easter Egg Hunt - the Moon Glow - so make sure everyone who is registered brings a working flashlight.

For both events, children will be grouped together by age and have their own special time to hunt (parents are allowed to hunt with children ages 0-3 only).

Three special prizes will be raffled off between events-a family get-away from Baymont Inns & Suites, Great Escape Great Shot Package and a gift basket full of toys/candy from Razzmatazz Toys & The Candy Bar.

Please dress warmly and appropriately for the weather and bring your picnic dinner to enjoy between events!

The Easter Bunny will be on hand for informal photos (so bring your camera) and all children will receive an bag to collect marshmallows and eggs. Parking is limited at Genoa Township Hall, free shuttle service available from Three Fires Elementary School. No refunds will be issued for one-day special events.

Concessions will be available for an extra charge.

Like us "MOON GLOW AND MARSHMALLOW DROP" on Facebook for updates and a chance to win VIP parking the night of the event.

Sponsored by ITC Corp. and Genoa Township.

April 8, 2014 Consumer Protection Warning regarding Utility Payments and Prepaid Debit Cards

Communities across the US are reporting scammers who are exploiting preloaded debit cards to steal money. The scam typically involves preloaded debit cards (the Green Dot prepaid card is a popular choice) where the scammers pose as utility company employees and threaten disconnection of service unless an immediate payment is made using a prepaid card.

MHOG/GO Utilities customers are advised not to respond to these types of phone calls.

MHOG and GO staff will not use phone calls to require customers to make a payment to avoid a cutoff of service. Water and sewer payments are accepted through the mail, online or in person.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette recommends that anyone who believes they have been a victim of a scam can contact the Consumer Protection Division. To file a complaint online, you can click on the following link

February 17, 2014 Brighton Area Fire Department offering free smoke detectors to hearing impaired residents

The Brighton Area Fire Authority is working with local residents to ensure proper smoke alarms for people with hearing impairments. The Fire Authority was a recipient of a 2013 grant in which 200 units were purchased for people who are deaf or have hearing impairments.

The Authority worked with Brighton Area Schools and Livingston Educational Service Agency to help determine the need of the area specifically children who meet the criteria. The device is a Life Tone unit which is paired to a smoke alarm in the home and activates when the smoke alarm senses smoke. The life tone unit looks like an alarm clock and re-transmits the alarm in a different tone and includes a device to physically shake the bed.

"The units will be installed by our firefighters who will also check the home's smoke alarms, conduct a brief fire safety check" commented Fire Chief Michael O'Brian. "This is part of our program to make sure all our residents have working smoke alarms."

To request a unit the resident should contact Lt. Lauren Brookins via email at lbrookins@brightonareafire.com to setup an installation time. Based on the number of requests, the Authority may have to prioritize the installations.

The Authority has plenty of regular smoke alarms as well. Those who live in Brighton Township, Genoa Township or the City of Brighton who would like their smoke alarms checked or need an installation can contact Brighton Area Fire Headquarters at 810-229-6640
