NOTICE OF CITY COMMISSION MEETING
The Royal Oak City Commission will hold a special meeting on Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 6:00p.m.
On April 1, 2020, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-33, which declared both a state of emergency and a state of disaster across the State of Michigan due to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that had not been previously identified in humans, can spread easily from person to person, and can result in serious illness or death. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, to protect the public health, and provide essential protections to vulnerable Michiganders, it is crucial that all Michiganders take steps to limit in-person contact. The critical mitigation measures include social distancing and limiting the number of people interacting at public gatherings. Therefore, the July 16, 2020 Royal Oak City Commission Special Meeting will be held electronically, in compliance with the Open Meetings Act and Executive Order 2020-129, as issued by Governor Whitmer on June 18, 2020.
