Montrose Township and the City of Montrose will sponsor 6-8 p.m. trick-or-treat hours
Ghosts, goblins and witches are all part of most Halloween celebrations, but you can avoid a frightening accident by talking to your children about trick-or-treat safety before they leave the house.
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, on average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car on Halloween than any other day of the year. To help make this year’s trick-or-treating a safe one, follow these safety tips:
- Children of any age should be accompanied by an adult.
- Cross the street only at corners or crosswalks.
- Do not cross the street between parked cars.
- Carry a flashlight.
- Wear light-colored or reflective-type clothing so you are more visible.
- Accept treats at the door and never go into a stranger's house.
- Stay in familiar neighborhoods. Plan your route and share it with your family.
- Stay in a group.
- Only visit homes that have the porch light on.
- Stay in populated and well-lit areas. Do not cut through back alleys or fields.
- Make sure all costumes are flame retardant. Avoid walking too close to open fires, candles and jack-o-lanterns.
- Make sure an adult inspects all candy before eating it. Do not eat candy that is already opened.
- Be sure to follow community curfew rules. -Courtesy of Michigan State Police

FREE Latex Paint Recycling for Genesee County Residents
Residents of Genesee County can now bring their left-over, unused, and unwanted latex paint to the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity Restore in the City of Flint to be recycled at NO CHARGE! Regular business hours are Tuesday through Saturday 9a.m. – 5p.m.
The paint collected at the Restore is transported to a processing facility in Battle Creek, operated by ePaint LLC, where the paint is then made into a new paint product called “Everybody’s Paint” or “ePaint” for short. This new paint product is then returned to the Restore in the City of Flint where residents can purchase new paint for under $15 per gallon! Paint colors even have their own Michigan-made touch such as “Keep Lake Michigan Blue”, “Mackinaw Green” and “Petoskey Stone”.
This program has been organized by the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission with support from the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity and Keep Genesee County Beautiful.
For more information please contact the Genesee County Recycle Hotline at (810) 762-7744; Recycle@co.genesee.mi.us or the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity Restore at (810) 766-9089. Restore Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9:00a.m.-5p.m.
