In our newsletter there was a mistake with the wording on Recreational Fires: The sentence that reads. Fire needs to be 25 feet within any structure. What was meant to say is fires need to be 25 feet away from any structure.   The Master plan for 2023  is on the Planning Zoning page for public participation.                                             

How do I file a personal protection order (PPO)?

A Personal Protection Order (PPO) is an order from the court that restrains a named individual from certain actions.  Otherwise commonly known as a “restraining order”, a PPO is effective when signed by a judge and served.  Michigan PPOs are enforceable by any law enforcement agency in the country.

A “do-it-yourself” PPO packet, containing instructions and all necessary forms, is available at the Circuit Court Trial Division, Michigan Avenue Courthouse, 227 W. Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49007 (Enter the courthouse through the Church Street entrance, West side of building), 4th Floor, Room 401. Please call 269-385-6081 to schedule an appointment.

For help filling out your PPO packet, contact the Victim Advocate at the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office or staff members at the YWCA Shelter.
