TOWNSHIP HALL & ORION CENTER have reopened for regular business 

While Township Hall and the Orion Center reopened to the public for regular business, residents and visitors are still encouraged to interact with us remotely via email, by phone or using our many online resources. 

Please note: All payments may continue to be made by mail, online, or using the secured drop-boxes in front of Township Hall.  Proof of receipt for any payments made can be emailed or mailed to you within one business day– please provide your email or mailing address and receipt request with your payment.

For those who will be visiting us again in person, a few things to be aware of:

  • All Township employees will be wearing facemasks while moving about the building and interacting with the public.  
  • Anyone from the public entering the building will also need to wear a facemask.  We have masks available for those who do not have one.
  • The ground floor entrance near the Sheriff's Office, as well as the front doors facing Joslyn Road, will be unlocked for the public to enter and exit. 
  • Please mind the floor decals designating proper social distancing, as well as the areas of the building open to the public.
  • Once you are finished with your task, you will exit the building out of the same set of doors you entered.

We look forward to welcoming you back and assisting in the best way possible!

Provided below are many of the common services residents would come to Township Hall to complete, with instructions on how to complete those actions remotely, including contact information and clickable links to online payment portals and department web pages for more information.  Located below Township Services are Oakland County Services, including the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
