Hazard Mitigation

Royal Oak residents and businesses are invited to participate in an important meeting to discuss the city’s disaster plan. The primary purpose of the meeting will be to review and discuss the final draft of the hazard mitigation plan, which discusses the hazards that could potentially impact the city, and the preparedness and mitigation efforts identified to create a more resilient community to the identified risks.

The meeting will be Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 1:00 PM. The meeting will be held in the conference room at Royal Oak Police Department Headquarters, 221 E Third Street.

The plan will also be available for review at https://romi.gov/1260/Hazard-Mitigation

The U.S. Federal government requires local and state governments to have a FEMA Approved Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan as established by the Disaster Mitigation Act
of 2000 in order to qualify for Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) and Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) project grant dollars. These programs are critical sources of Federal funding, especially for a community that wants to proactively initiate mitigation projects using PDM dollars, or for a community that needs HMGP funding following a disaster declared by the president.

Saving water can save money, too!

City Treasurer Jaynmarie Hubanks recommends residents write down monthly (or even weekly) water meter reads on a calendar and compare it to your normal usage indicated on your past quarterly water bills.

"This simple task may allow you to identify a possible water leak EARLY and before it causes you a high water bill,” she said.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the average household's leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year and ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.

Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. These types of leaks are often easy to fix, requiring only a few tools and hardware that can pay for themselves in water savings. Fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners about 10 percent on their water bills.
