Calling All Auburn Hills Voters!

People voting in polling place

Next Tuesday, November 3, is Election Day in the City. On the ballot will be City Council and Library Board candidates, and for Rochester School voters there is also a millage question.

Generally the voter turnout for a City election is low. That has always amazed me for one simple reason – what City Council decides will impact the residents quicker than what Congress or even the President does. For example; national healthcare has been on the front burner for years, but City Council’s 2015 votes to repave Taylor Road or hire more firefighters are already in progress.

City Council has the authority to impact the quality of daily life in our City. Think about all the benefits of living in Auburn Hills. Good roads, great parks, fantastic recreation programs, extraordinary senior citizen services, and wonderful police and fire services are just a few that are overseen, approved and budgeted by City Council.

In Auburn Hills, City Council members are involved in almost every aspect of day to day living.

Wouldn’t you like the opportunity to choose them?

The polls are open 7 am to 8 pm on Tuesday. If you are unsure where you vote, please call my office at 248-370-9402 during business hours, or check online at   My office will be open 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, October 31 to issue absentee applications.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call at 248-370-9402.

EPA Grant

I am pleased to announce that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded the City of Auburn Hills a grant in the amount of $140,000.  The grant will be used to restore approximately two acres of wetland habitat along the Galloway Creek that were illegally filled (not by the City) back in the late 1980’s.   The grant funds will be used to cover the costs associated with design and construction and do not require any matching funds from the City.  Auburn Hills is one of 11 projects selected for funding.  34 projects were submitted for consideration.

The site is located in the area outlined in red shown on the east side of M-24, near the Palace of Auburn Hills.
