I-69 Trade Corridor Representative Needed

There is an opening to represent the City of Perry on the I-69 International Trade Corridor group.

The I-69 International Trade Corridor is a collaborative effort by businesses and local government partners from Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, and St. Clair Counties to market the area’s highway, railroad, airport and water port resources to companies that are engaged in international commerce. The goal is to encourage firms to not only ship through this corridor but to also set up manufacturing and distribution facilities here to take advantage of these multi-modal transportation opportunities.

To support this collaboration, a Next Michigan Development Corporation was created with participation from 36 municipalities in the four counties including 12 in Shiawassee County making it one of the largest intergovernmental collaboratives in the state of Michigan. The four counties of Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer and St. Clair are experiencing new initiatives that are increasing trade and transportation. The I-69 Trade Corridor resources can grow your business.

Visit: and to find out more information about Michigan’s 4-County Trade Cooperative for Economic Opportunity and Success.

This group meets once every two months. Meetings typically take place at Flint’s Bishop International Airport as this is a central location for the participating municipalities. More information about the meetings is available at Shiawassee Economic Development Authority in Owosso, 989-725-9241.

If you’re interested in representing the city, please fill out an application for appointment, here:

City residents and non-residents who are business owners in the city will be considered. Questions can also be directed to Mayor Hammond 517-625-6155, extension 231.

Sign Up for RAVE – Shiawassee County’s Emergency Notification System

The City of Perry is encouraging all residents to enroll in RAVE.  

In response to a recent need to issue a city wide notice regarding our water system, the City has identified a free service to expedite the notification process when emergencies arise.  While the recent notice to boil water was the first of its kind in more than 15 years, this service will allow us to communicate faster should it be needed again in the future.

The benefits of RAVE extend beyond our community.  The system can send emergency notifications from evacuation notices to missing child alerts.  After enrolling in RAVE you can even opt in to Weather Warnings generated by the National Weather Service.

Residents and business alike are urged to enroll.   It will only take a few minutes, please tell all of your friends and family about this invaluable service!  Smart phone users can also download the Smart911 Rave Mobile Safety App in the app store.  If you know of a resident that does not have access to the internet, such as an elderly neighbor please help them enroll as well, or direct them to City Hall for assistance.

More information about the RAVE system can be found on the Shiawassee County Central Dispatch website.
