Part of what makes living in Ottawa Hills so attractive is the quality of services provided to residents. It starts with a responsive village management team, that is committed to providing residents with outstanding service. Residents are encouraged to consider the village administration a resource for solving problems of all sorts. It’s no wonder that year after year, residents rank nearly every municipal service outstanding.

The Ottawa Hills Police Department has 15 full-time employees dedicated to preserving security, peace and quality of life.

The Ottawa Hills Service Department is continually at work to deliver outstanding service to our residents. This talented full-time staff is responsible for weekly trash and recycling pickup, leaf pickup, ice and snow removal and maintenance of the roads, sewers and street lights.
