  • FIREWORKS DISPLAY TESTING SITE

    Last evening the Tawas City Council approved the planned test of the Chamber fireworks display in a location that eliminates use of a barge. Next Tuesday, September 24th at 8:00 pm, Wolverine Fireworks will launch an anticipated 12 shells (of various sizes) from a municipal site near the Tawas City Industrial Park to determine the feasibility of utilizing this location for the 2020 July 4th fireworks display.

    We need your help in viewing and assessing this presentation from across the area to identify the quality of visibility of the display from a number of locations. There will be a press release alerting the public who will also be assessing how this goes. If possible, please try to take a few minutes to view the display and let the Chamber know what you think. Because Wolverine will be launching shells of various sizes, please try to identify which shell you could view the best, i.e.: #1, #2, #3, etc. Thanks for your help everyone.

  • Weather Conditions Affect Mosquito Spraying

    The City has received several phone calls concerning the number of mosquitos this year in spite of the spraying.     APM has started the mosquito spraying but weather conditions need to be right in order for spraying to be effective.  The minimum parameters for truck fogging are wind speed less than 10 mph, temperature above 55*F and not raining at the time of application. The inability to meet these weather conditions has made truck fogging very sporadic thus far this year.  APM will be making every effort to handle the mosquito situation.  If you have questions or concerns, please call APM's toll free number 877 276-4714.

  • Mosquito Control Program

    Advanced Pest Management has been contracted by the City of East Tawas to perform mosquito abatement for the 2019 mosquito season. This will consist of treating standing water areas to control mosquito larvae and truck fogging of city streets to control adult mosquito populations. Vectobac G (Bti,.2%Bacillus thuringiensis,israilensis) will be used for larviciding.   Biomist 4+4 (4%permethrin,4% technical piperonyl butoxide) and  Kontrol 4+4 (4.6%permethrin,4.6% technical piperonyl butoxide),  will be used for adulticiding .   Our regular time for spraying will be on Wednesday nights.  If you have any questions, concerns, special requests, or would like to be on a notification/shutoff list, please call our office at (810) 766-9423 or toll free at (877) 276-4714. Contact Person: Chuck Mullins, 21240 34 Mile Rd, Armada, MI 48005.

  • City of East Tawas talks Stormwater to protect Lake Huron

    The City of East Tawas is working together with conservation nonprofit Huron Pines to understand how to keep our local water resources healthy.  We are forming a partnership to learn more about managing our city's stormwater.  With heavy rains and snowmelt, water can pick up pollutants like road salt and dirt and deposit them into our fresh water sources.  We'll look at how and where stormwater and snowmelt enter our rivers, inland lakes and Lake Huron and how we can reduce negative impacts with natural features like forests, wetlands and green space. 

    On June 6, 2019 local decision makers and Huron Pines staff like come together to kick things off with a hands-on workshop to build a shared understanding of stormwater efforts in the City of East Tawas and to identify tools and opportunities that can help us build a sustainable plan for healthy water in East Tawas.
