Royal Oak, MI – The Royal Oak City Clerk’s office will be closed on Monday, Mar. 14, as it prepares to relocate to the police building following a burst heating pipe on Mar. 8 that caused major water damage to three floors at City Hall, located at 211 S. Williams.

The clerk’s staff will move into the former traffic bureau space, which is located directly west of the main desk at the police building at 221 E. Third. The relocation is expected to last for six weeks or more as restoration crews work to repair the water damage, which was Red Door Realty Ad _own_your_dreamcaused when a connection to a heating unit in the city attorney’s office suite on the second floor failed.
