Unique Opportunity to Serve Your Community!

The City of St. Johns is looking for election inspectors.  Registered voters of Clinton County interested in serving as an Election Inspector for the City of St. Johns on election days should fill out an Election Inspector Application at the City Clerk’s Office, 100 East State Street, Suite #1100, St. Johns.  It is also available on our website.  The Clinton County Clerk will be conducting training this summer that is required every two years.  This would be a great opportunity for retirees, college students, or state workers that have the general election day off.  If you have questions or would like more information, you may contact the city clerk’s office at 224-8944 extension 223.


Hydrant Flushing

The City of St. Johns will begin the spring fire hydrant flushing program Monday, May 4th. The flushing will start north of M-21. This should take around two-three weeks dependent upon weather. We will then move south of M-21. If you experience discolored water during this time, it will clear up quickly. If you have questions, please contact the St. Johns Water Department at (989) 224-8944. Thank you.

With the shorage of toilet paper, residents are advised to not flush paper towel or facial tissue down the toilet as these materials can not only plug your sanitary sewer line, they can also plug main lines causing neighborhood backups and significant damage to basements. As usual, if you suspect that your sewer line may be plugged please contact City Offices at (989) 224-8944 from 8 am to 5 pm. For night, weekend or holiday drainage issues, contact (989) 224-9192 for after hour responses. Thank you.
