Our Town Is Your Town


The Village of Kent City was incorporated in 1908.  It is located in the northwestern corner of Kent County – within Tyrone Township and is surrounded by an abundance of rich farmland.   Kent City is primarily a bedroom community with industrial areas growing along the M37 state highway.   The Village lies in proximity to the Rogue River State Game area.  The natural resources of the area, in combination with the Village’s tranquil community character, and immediacy to the City of Grand Rapids, have helped make the village a family friendly town.

Sping/Summer Reminders:

Yard waste is the number one question we get calls about. The Village provides the service of picking up brush and grass clippings. The Yard Waste Policy is available on the website or by contacting the Village Office for a copy. This service does not include trees that you have taken down or major trimming. The Village has a secured area where you can dump tree debris. Contact the DPW Manager @ 616-293-0693 to make arrangements. Other issues: Before planting trees, bushes, and sprinkler heads make sure they are on your property and not in the Village right-of-way.
