The City of Grand Blanc has a new program to offer savings on prescription drugs to residents who are without health insurance, a traditional benefits plan or have prescriptions that are not covered by insurance.

The PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD is made available to residents by the City of Grand Blanc in collaboration with the National League of Cities (NLC) and is made possible by the City of Grand Blanc's membership in NLC.

The card is FREE to ALL City of Grand Blanc residents, regardless of age, income or existing health insurance. By using this card, you may save an average of 20% off the regular retail price of prescription drugs at participating pharmacies.

To discover the savings and learn more about the program, pick up a PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD at City Hall, 203 E. Grand Blanc Road or for more information, call toll-free: 1-888-620-1749.

This is not insurance. Discounts are only available at participating pharmacies. By using this card, participants agree to pay the entire prescription cost less any applicable discount. Savings may vary by drug and pharmacy.


The City of Grand Blanc does NOT spray for mosquitos. If you are having trouble with mosquitos, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has useful information at:

The sirens are tested the 1st Saturday of the month from March through November at 1:00 p.m. If a large fire is in progress, the test may be delayed for up to 15 minutes. The test lasts approximately 4 minutes and begins with a wavering tone, followed by a solid blast tone.

Besides the test, the sirens are activated for tornado warnings and/or 70 miles per hour winds or higher only. For a tornado or 70 mph winds or greater warning, the siren will give a solid one minute or three minute (depending on siren model) blast every 10 minutes until warning has expired.
