Watch: State of the City Address

In his state of the city address delivered on July 11 at Oakland Community College,  Mayor Mike Fournier told the audience, "Royal Oak is not a place to exist, it is a place to live and thrive." 

In case you missed his public address -- which highlighted public safety, economic growth and neighborhoods -- the mayor's speech is available on YouTube.


Be Safe this Summer

Please be aware outdoor backyard fires are not only harmful to your neighbors who suffer from lung disease or allergies, but it is also against city ordinance unless properly conducted.

You may burn only in a vessel or container such as a grill; chiminea; or an appropriate fire pit (off the ground and contained). Acceptable fuels for burning are propane, natural gas, or commercially made charcoal.

“Open burning” anything directly on the ground is strictly prohibited. Burning leaves, wood, tree trimmings, grass or debris is also prohibited.

Smart Recycling at Parks

The City of Royal Oak is experimenting with new recycling stations at Memorial, Starr-Jaycee and VFW parks. The smart waste and recycling system compresses trash so it can hold more waste than a typical outdoor trash can and it will automatically notify the Department of Public Service when it needs to be emptied!

The station has two different compartments -- one for recycles (blue chute door with recycling symbol, shown on left in photo) and one for trash (black chute door with a trash symbol, shown on right in photo). Go to https://www.romi.gov/1266/What-can-I-recycle to learn what is recyclable.

Please, do not put food items or other non-recyclables in the recycling compartment! When you do, you contaminate the entire load and everything gets thrown away, including any recyclables collected. :(

Remember, "When in doubt throw it out!" If you aren't sure if an item is recyclable, use the trash chute.
