Welcome!

Welcome to Laurium's new official village website.

This website will serve as your link to information and happenings in the Village of Laurium.

Home of "The Gipper"

Laurium is known for the legend of George Gipp. The mere mention of his name brings to mind the immortal words "win one for the Gipper". Gipp has been enshrined in the National Football and Michigan Halls of Fame and more recently in the Upper Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame.

Public Hearing/Special Meeting

The Village of Laurium will conduct a public hearing on Monday, September 29, 2014 at 5:15PM in the council chambers of the Village Hall during a special meeting.  The purpose of the public hearing/special meeting is to seek public comment and input regarding a Michigan Strategic Fund Urgent Need Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $258,300.  The purpose of this grant is for repairs/replacement of damaged water system infrastructure caused by the extreme winter weather of 2014.

Dogs Running Loose

There have been a number of dogs running loose recently in the village limits.  You are responsible for keeping your dog leashed when outside. There are trails you can take your pet to and let them run free under your control such as the new Woodland Rd. trail that's part of the Swedetown ski trail system, or at Calumet lake. However, in the Village of Laurium, all dogs must be leashed when outside. All violations will result in the LPD bringing the animal to the animal alliance in Houghton (regardless of whether or not they have a collar).

Ordinance # 120 "Known as the Leash Law"

Residents of the village of Laurium who have dogs should be familiar with ordinance 120.

Basically, you are not allowed to let your dog run loose. If your dog is not on your property, it must be on a leash and under your control. If found running at large, you will be cited with a fine if the police know who the owner is. If the owner is not known, your dog will be impounded, which also requires payment of a fine in order to get the dog back.

Maintenance of Residential Yards

Now that the snow is gone and spring clean-up is underway, village residents should be aware that 2 ordinances (140 and 111) address requirements related to maintaining residential yards.
