City Government phone service interrupted
Royal Oak City Government offices are experiencing a network outage with the service provider. All incoming and outgoing phone calls are unable to be routed through the telephone system. The system will be down for an undetermined amount of time and every effort is being taken to find out how long it will be until service is restored.
The City's 911 service is completely functional and you are encouraged to call 911 for emergencies only. Urgent police related calls may be made to 248-336-9038.
Oakland County Service Also Interrupted
Oakland County Government Offices are also down, but callers who have a critical need at the County may call the county’s switchboard at 1-888-350-0900 and ask the operator to transfer the call to a county department or division.
Other toll-free numbers to reach some county departments directly include:
Oakland County Sheriff Dispatch 800-647-3334
Health Division 866-683-7191
Nurse on Call 800-848-5533
Friend of the Court 800-357-4507
Work Force Development 800-742-5463

Callers whose issues are not urgent are asked to call back after regular service has been restored. At this time, it is not clear when that will be.
