New Pothole Reporting Option

The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has added a pothole-reporting option to its app providing citizens with a quick and efficient way to report the pesky holes. 

The app is free and can be downloaded through the  Google and Apple app stores. It can be found by searching “Road Commission for Oakland County.”   

“RCOC is utilizing technology to provide citizens with a simple option to report road issues throughout Oakland County,” RCOC Board Chairman Eric Wilson said. “We greatly appreciate motorists reporting issues such as potholes, and providing a variety of methods to submit concerns also makes our work more efficient,” he added.

Eagle Scout Project - Bettering our Parks!

In April 2017, Eagle Scout candidate Joseph Berkheiser along with Troop 308 in Commerce Township built and installed 18 pet waste stations in six of Commerce's Parks (Dodge, Richardson, Bicentennial, Hickory Glenn, Maple Glenn, and Long Park). The purpose of the project was to recycle plastic grocery bags and to help keep our community parks clean from pet waste. Troop 308 contributed over 120 man hours to Commerce Township designing, planning, fund raising, building and installing these waste stations.

The community can help by restocking the waste stations while walking through the parks or dropping off the bags at the Richardson Center.
