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.

Trick or Treating

Trick or Treating in the Village of Laurium will be from 5:00PM-8:00PM on Saturday, October 31st.
Stop by the Village Hall to get goodie bags for the kids.
There will not be any activities at the George Gipp Arena on Halloween this year.

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.
