Cancellation of Indoor Rentals
& Limited City Hall Staff / Hours
Out of an abundance of caution and due to the rising case numbers in Oakland County, we are cancelling the INDOOR rentals of the Community Room through December 31, 2020.  

Effective Monday, November 16, 2020,, administration staff is reduced, with as many working feasible. With the reduced staffing, the City Administration Front Counter will be CLOSED daily from 12:30pm to 1:30pm, to allow staff to break for lunch and have a mid-day opportunity to sanitize their work area.
