Accessing City Services During COVID-19

How the City of Berkley is Responding
We activated our Emergency Operations Center which is in accordance with the Oakland County Health Department in order to coordinate response and prepare for a potential outbreak. Our Emergency Operations staff have been and continue to work closely with Oakland County Health Department and Oakland County Homeland Security, the state, and federal officials to protect our community as we respond to this developing situation.

This is a new disease, and scientists are learning more about it daily. Recommendations may change rapidly. Stay up to date with City messages by signing up for our community news email list

**CITY HALL COVID-19 UPDATE AS OF 11/13/2020** 

Due to the rising COVID-19 case numbers and the small capacity of our building, City Hall will be closed to the public starting Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Services WILL STILL BE operational as staff will continue to be working as they have done since the beginning of the shutdown. This decision was made to ensure that our staff can continue to work safely and can continue to provide our community with exceptional service. We appreciate your patience with us as we continue to navigate through this. We will be reassessing the closure of City Hall at the beginning of February. 

Accessing many of our City Hall services CAN BE DONE via phone, email, through a dropbox submission, or US mail.

This includes the following municipal services:

The Parks & Recreation team is currently deliberating on how we will be adapting to the recently issued Public Health orders given by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

However, at this time we will be closing for the three-week pause per the public health orders starting Wednesday, November 18, and will reassess after the order is lifted

Additionally, our current senior transportation schedule will continue through Thanksgiving. After the holiday, we will be shifting the schedule to Tuesday and Thursday. Transportation will also be for grocery shopping and doctor appointments ONLY. As a reminder, masks are still required to ride on the SMART bus.  

We thank you for your patience as we navigate through this.
