Snow Emergency Ordinance - Public Announcement

The City of Royal Oak SNOW EMERGENCY ORDINANCE requires all parked vehicles removed from public streets.  Vehicles not removed will be subject to a citation and / or impoundment by the Police Department.  The Police Department will make such declaration and public information will be available through local media outlets as well as by calling 248-246-3442 for a recorded telephone message.

The success of a snow removal operation, while sometimes inconvenient, is a community effort.  Removing vehicles from the streets allows snowplows to move unimpeded through the city.  This reduces the time it takes to complete the plowing which restores safe, drivable conditions in the community sooner.  

After your street has been plowed it is immediately and automatically excluded from the Snow Emergency Parking Ban.

Persons residing in homes without driveways may apply for a “SNOW EMERGENCY PARKING EXEMPTION PERMIT”. This permit allows the owner/lessee of the vehicle for which the permit is issued to park only in front of his/her residence during the snow emergency.

The application fee is non-refundable.  Applications can be obtained from the City’s website, Parking Exemption Permit via the Records Bureau of the Royal Oak Police Department, 221 E. Third Street.  All City ordinances are available on the City’s website.  

Records Bureau hours are:  Monday through Thursday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Applicants are required to show proof of residence and must provide a current vehicle registration for the vehicle to be exempted.

SEMCOG Executive Director Kathleen Lomako and Deputy Director Carmine Palombo presented the state of the region and the state of SEMCOG to staff earlier in the week. The state of the region is strong because Southeast Michigan continues to show economic improvement. SEMCOG data showing increased taxable values, building permits, GDP, and per capita income are a few of the indicators that tell us we are a region on the rebound. View presentation here.

For SEMCOG, 2014 was a successful year. Here are some of the projects that contributed to that success:

Additionally, SEMCOG’s membership has reached an all-time high of 165. We are honored to partner with the great communities that make up Southeast Michigan.

While the state of SEMCOG is strong, there is much to be done in 2015, including:
