The Village of Fowlerville Office Staff would like to remind residents and business owners to check on family, friends, and neighbors during extreme winter weather. We encourage residents to be aware of their neighbors who may need help, especially with snow/ice removal. Please reach out and provide a helping hand if you are able. You will benefit your neighbor, pedestrians, and yourself as you give service. Thank you in advance for your kindness, hard effort, and thoughtfulness.
