Now that more people are staying home and using the toilet paper, disinfecting wipes, flushable wipes and baby wipes that they rushed to the stores to purchase we at the City of Hart would like to remind you that even though the packaging may say flushable that doesn't mean it should be flushed down the toilet. The only item that you should be flushing down your toilet is toilet paper. None of those other items will actually biodegrade in the wastewater system and the very germs and other materials that you are trying to dispose of you will be exposing City employees to when they have to clear the blocked sewer lines from those items.
These are just a couple of examples of how those items block the mains and can cause big problems in your home.
The City of Hart has become a participating municipality in this program. It provides for the escrow of fire insurance as established by Act 495 of the Public Acts of 1980. The intention is to uniformly apply the provisions of Section 2845 or Section 2227 to all properties within the City of Hart in order to protect and promote the public health, safety and welfare.
These provisions of this act provide that a portion of certain casualty losses for fire or explosion otherwise payable by insurers may be withheld in escrow by our community in order to secure, repair, replace or remove damaged structures which violate the City of Hart health or safety standards.

Twenty-two miles of smooth new pavement for your ride; that's the William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail, now finished and ready for you and your family to enjoy.
The City of Hart marks the north end of the trail, providing easy access and plenty of amenities. The trail was once a Grand Rapids to Pentwater railroad line dating back to 1872. From Hart you can head south on the trail toward Shelby, Rothbury, Montague and points in between, making for a fun and memorable day's adventure.
