The Marblehead Fire Department has been continuously serving the residents of Marblehead, Lakeside and Danbury Township since 1895. The Department is owned by the Village of Marblehead and is under the current leadership of Chief Doug Waugh. We can carry a roster of up to 35 members. Our equipment consists of two fire engines, one grass fire truck, one heavy rescue truck, two type 2 ambulances and one parade truck (a 1941 Dodge Buffalo Pumper still in working condition). The department is proud of being a leader in fire and EMS protection. In 1959, our department was the first in Ottawa County to provide ambulance service. We were also the first department to staff full-time personnel. Our station is manned seven days a week from the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exception of some holidays. Our volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to protect and serve the community. We are involved with fire prevention education for children and adults.

 

 

The Marblehead Police Department currently consists of our Chief, one full-time officer and three part-time officers. The Marblehead Police Department protects the lives and property of the citizens, enforces laws, prevents crime and educates the public. We perform these duties with honesty and fairness. Through strong leadership and continuous training, we will strive to serve as role models for the community, applying professional standards and commitment to integrity, sensitivity and compassion to those we serve.

The Marblehead Water Department was formed with the passage of Ordinance No. 12-1958. Village Council set into motion the building of a municipal waterworks system for Marblehead. The village waterworks has been in continuous operation since 1959 serving the residents with high quality water for over 45 years. The first Board of Public affairs was appointed on November 28, 1958.

Members were Joseph Kristenak, President; and Steve Meterko and Charlie Myers. The board has seen many others elected to the position over the years including Robert S. Boytim, the longest serving elected official in Ottawa County. The first plant superintendent, Franklin Merrill, was appointed on July 16, 1959 and remained in this position until retirement in 1988. Over the years many changes have occurred including two annexations which added demand to the system and a plant expansion to satisfy the demands.

The 2004 EPA required plant expansion has been completed ensuring a constant supply of quality water for our future. The Board of Public Affairs and the Water Department are proud to be part of service to our community providing safe, high quality water 365 days a year. Current BPA Members are President Bob Boytim, George Danchisen and Lyn App.
