For most residents it’s not hard to miss the 22,000-square foot new Montrose Township Public Safety Complex on the corner of Seymour and Vienna Roads.

On Tuesday, January 16, Township officials and personnel from Montrose Police and Fire Departments were open for business at 11444 N. Seymour Road.

“The Township Board and I believe it is something future generations will be proud of,” said Supervisor Mark Emmendorfer. “We welcome everyone to stop by, see the new building as they’re conducting their business or just come by to visit.”

The structure was built under budget and ahead of schedule. Designed by Gazall, Lewis & Associates Architects, it is a pre-engineered steel building with brick façade, insulated metal panels and standing seam roof. The site features 9 acres, 80+ parking spaces; a basement for IT and storage, an administrative area with conference rooms and Township Hall; a Police Department with “sally port” which provides safe officer-prisoner transition to the three holding cells, and a Fire Department with four apparatus bays and a wash bay.

“Everything about the building has a purpose,” Supervisor Emmendorfer said. 

Jerry Tomczak, Senior Project Manager for DWL explains more about the building. “This new building is very attractive and energy efficient,” he said. “It is designed using LED-lighting, foam sprayed walls and radiant tube heating in the apparatus bays. It meets the needs for an efficient and effective local government operation by combining the administrative, fire and police in one building. A great team effort.” 

In the trenches every day was Ryan Jones, Site Superintendent for DWL. “This project for me was very rewarding to work on,” he said. “The construction team and owners were readily available on site to answer questions and make decisions that looked out for every dollar spent.”

Legislation halts $10 fee being charged to Michigan residents who freeze their credit

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today praised the Michigan House and Senate for passing legislation that amends the Security Freeze Act to prohibit a consumer reporting agency from charging a fee for placing, temporarily lifting, or removing a security freeze on a consumer’s credit report.

Schuette worked with the legislature to get this bill passed following the 2017 Equifax security breach that left many Michiganians scrambling to freeze their credit, only to discover the associated fees.

Under current law, a consumer reporting agency is allowed to charge a fee of up to $10 to place, temporarily lift, or remove a credit report security freeze. The fee must be waived if the consumer has filed a police report alleging identity theft.

“No one should be charged a fee when their personal information is breached through no fault of their own, nor should they be charged for taking preventative measures to protect themselves from identity theft,” said Schuette. “I thank the legislature for moving this to the Governor’s desk for signature, and encourage the Governor to sign this legislation quickly.”


Schuette joined with more than 40 other states and the District of Columbia in an investigation of credit giant Equifax in September 2017. The investigation remains open.

If you are uncertain as to whether your credit was breached, Schuette encourages Michigan residents to go to Equifax’s Cybersecurity Incident & Important Consumer Information website to see if your information has been impacted.

You can also read Equifax’s FAQ for Consumers; Progress Updates for Consumers; and Notice of Data Breach to keep up on the latest announcements from Equifax.

Schuette previously released a Consumer Alert for Michigan residents on the use of a credit freeze and what to look for on your credit report.
