Anyone needing city services in either city, or who had a previously scheduled appointment, should contact the appropriate official first: Ludington, 231-845-6237; Scottville, 231-757-4729. 

The decision is at the recommendation of District Health Department #10, Governor Whitmer’s Emergency Declaration and other local public safety officials.
