Welcome Winter!!

snow removalWith the arrival of winter, we are reminded that our Department of Public Works will be working to remove snow and help maintain our streets and parking areas for everyone's safety. This is a friendly reminder that there is no parking on any Village Street between the hours of 2AM - 6AM. Also, there is no parking for more then 72 hours in any municipal parking lot. Please note there are designated areas to park, if you are using a public lot. Signs are located at these locations for your convenience. Unfortunately, vehicles that remain in the restricted areas will be towed.

We would also like to remind business owners, and home owners to keep side walks cleared and to clear snow from fire hydrants on, or in front of properties, in case we need one in an emergency. Valuable time can be lost if firefighters need to shovel out a hydrant in the event of a fire.


Several LHS Alumni have worked with the Lakeview Area community Fund (LACF) to launch the
LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund. The LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund will be used to support one or more scholarships annually for seniors beginning in 2021. The amount and number of scholarships awarded will be determined by the level of giving from LHS alumni and friends of LHS. Preference will be given to students based on their financial need. Special consideration will go to those students who work, apprentice and/or participate in community service and/or extracurricular activities while attending Lakeview Community Schools.

If you are interested in donating to the LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund you can go online at ​

or send a check to Lakeview Area Community Fund c/o GACF, 101 N. Lafayette, Greenville MI 48838.

All donations are tax deductable.
