The City of Livonia offers emergency shelter for residents who may have a power outage as the temperatures turn frigid.
The Jack E. Kirksey Community Recreation Center is prepared to provide a temporary place to stay for those Livonia residents who confirm that they live in the City.
“Our Recreation Center has heat, cots, hot showers and power available. Staff will be available to provide short-term shelter for residents who may need it,” said Mayor Dennis K. Wright.
Residents who need help must arrive before 9 p.m. Monday to Friday, 6 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday in order to arrange for staffing before closing time. The Recreation Center can also be reached at (734) 466-2900.
All recreation areas of the facility will be off-limits for emergency shelter users, including the pools, gymnasiums, climbing wall and fitness hub. Those who need to use the shelter will also be asked to agree to a code of conduct while using the site.
