Township Roads

Why are our ROADS not maintained like they used to be?  Refer to:  A Guide to Michigan's Road & Road Funding Crisis.



HB 4423 has been signed into law. It allows speed limits on gravel roads to be set at 45 miles per hour in a county such as Oakland that has a population of one million or more. Speed limits can be posted lower than 45 mph if a speed study supports the reduction. Municipalities will be responsible for paying for the required signage.

Residents can contact Representative Brad Jacobson, bradjacobsen@house.mi.gov, and Senator Dave Robertson, sendrobertson@senate.michigan.gov to voice their opinions on this proposed legislation.

Dog Licenses

The Michigan State Dog law was passed in 1919 to ensure that all dogs have current rabies vaccinations.  Oakland County Animal Control conducts a census each summer to make sure dogs residing in our community are compliant.  Dog tags purchased after June 1st are considered delinquent.  Please refer to the Treasurer's page for more information on purchasing dog licenses for your pet.
