AUBURN HILLS SPRING RAKE + RUN
Did your yard take a beating this past winter? Are you finding it more difficult to get out and rake your yard to get it ready for spring? If you are a senior citizen or disabled homeowner who needs help in getting the yard ready for spring we may be able to help. Volunteers will clean and rake yards for eligible residents.

LAWN MOWING + SNOW PLOWING PROGRAMS
FOR SENIORS + PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
The City offers 2 different lawn mowing and snow removal services for income and age eligible homeowners. The first program is funded by the CDBG Yard Service Program and provides bi-weekly mowing service in the summer months and snow removal during the winter season. The next is a cost-share program where participants pay half of the cost of the service. Both programs require residency, are based on income, and all household members must be over age 65, or disabled. Income guidelines change seasonally.

Call to schedule an appointment 248-370-9353.
