Located just a short distance West of Flint and only moments from the 1-75/23 corridor allows the people of Flushing to enjoy the advantages of a metropolitan area, while residing in a small town atmosphere.

The City of Flushing is a stable community with quality residential neighborhoods, good schools, beautiful views of the Flint River, a historic and vibrant downtown, parks, and convenient freeway access. Annual events and festivals, such as the Summerfest and Christmas Candlewalk contribute to Flushing's "small town" sense of community.

The Flint River and related topography are the most important visual assets to the community. Spectacular views of the river valley and tranquility of the water create an identity unique to the region. The City has taken full advantage of this resource, especially in the downtown. The river's aesthetic opportunities include physical links to the river in the downtown area, along Main Street east of the Central Business District, and in Riverview Park along the Riverview Trail.

December 1, 2020 Fall Leaf Collection update:

The DPW Fall Leaf collection thas ended.  If you have leaves that are at the road now, the DPW has noted them and will pick them up.  However, if your leaves are not currently at the road, you should store them until Spring, or take them to the dumpsters at Eastview Park as soon as possible, before the dumsters are removed. 

From the Flushing Police Department

            As citizens of our community are taking measures to reduce their exposure to the COVID-19 pandemic, another problem is surfacing as a result.  The City of Flushing is receiving reports that people are disposing of personal protective equipment, such as masks and gloves, by throwing them on the ground in places open to the public.  Gloves and masks have been found in parking lots and other areas throughout town.

            This behavior is concerning as it goes beyond littering.  These items potentially contain the harmful Coronavirus we are trying to contain.  Littering with these materials leaves others exposed and can further the pandemic within our community.  This cannot be tolerated.

            It is our hope members of our community will be responsible and considerate and use appropriate disposal containers.  Trash containers are located at convenient locations throughout the city.  If necessary, the police department will explore all enforcement options available for those who fail to comply.  This could result in charges that go beyond a violation for littering.

Due to the implementation of COVID-19 mitigation measures, contact the Flushing Police Department via email at mhoornstra@flushingcity.com or by phone at 911.


Effective June 8, 2020, the City of Flushing offices are officially open to the public. However, for your safety, we ask that any business that can be handled by phone, through the mail or drop box is still done that way in order to control the surge the State has seen recently.  If you do need to come into the office for a landfill permit or other in-person business, we are here for you, and we are doing everything we can to ensure that you are protected and safe from the spread of the virus. 

Effective immediately, pursuant to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services order, all customers must wear a mask and maintan physical distancing.  As always, if you have a fever, cough, sore thoat, loss of taste or smell, difficulty breathing, or are experincing any other symptoms of COVID-19, please do not enter the building and seek medical treatment.  

All public meetings will continue to be available via Zoom because of the MDHHS 10 person in-door limit on indoor activities and the City's space limitations for physical distancing.
