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.

Regular September Council meeting

The regular monthly meeting of the Laurium Village Council will be held on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 5:30PM. Since the council and the public cannot meet in the council chambers, you can join the meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Access Code: 933-133-277

COVID -19

Due to the health concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the Village of Laurium is asking that business be conducted by mail using PO Box 627, phone (906)337-1600 or in the newly added DROP BOX outside the front doors of the village hall. This will help our employees and the public keep safe from the spread of infection.

Extra Pick-up Changes

The village has modified extra pick-ups of the following items going forward:

couches, loveseats, mattresses, box springs, chairs, rugs, TVs and microwaves

Effective immediately, there will be no annual free extra pick-up in the spring. Instead, each household is encouraged, when needed, to call the village office and schedule free pick-up of the items listed above. There will be no charge for up to 3 items annually.    

 

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).
