Greetings My name is Stephen Kepley and I am the Mayor of The City of Kentwood. I am proud to say that Kentwood is a dynamic community of 49,184 unique individuals who are well educated and equipped for today’s and tomorrow’s jobs. We are poised to assist and work with any enterprise that wishes to begin and grow the American Dream.
With the season’s heavy snowfall, please be mindful that warming temperatures are anticipated along with rainfall. The City urges folks to uncover and clear catch basins, yard drains, drainage structures or detention pond outlets affecting your property. This winter has been challenging and I sympathize with your plight. Please be careful if you are on your roof addressing ice damming or snow!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a man who’s courage and actions have forever influenced and changed us as individuals and our community as a whole, is being honored today. Many ceremonies are being conducted to remind us where we have been and to challenge us to where we are to go. We must continue Dr. King’s message of love for one another through not just our words, but more importantly, our actions.
