NOTICE OF PARKS, RECREATION AND SENIOR SERVICES ADVISORY BOARD MEETING
The Royal Oak Parks, Recreation and Senior Services Advisory Board will hold a meeting at
6:00p.m. on Thursday, October 15, 2020
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 October 15, 2020 Royal Oak Parks, Recreation and Senior Services
Advisory Board Meeting will be held electronically, in compliance with the Open Meetings Act and
Executive Order 2020-154, as issued by Governor Whitmer on July 17, 2020.
