Royal Oak Residents Academy
Have you ever looked at your property tax bill and wondered where it all went? The city of Royal Oak is kicking off a new residents academy this spring to help educate residents on what different city departments do and ways to be more involved. The program is available free of charge to any Royal Oak resident over the age of 18. There will be 7 sessions on Thursday evenings, typically between spring break and Memorial Day.
The 2023 academy application window has now closed. We received quite a few applications, and will be getting back to applicants soon.
If you would like updates about future academies, email Susan Barkman.

Royal Oak Police Citizens Academy
The Royal Oak Police Department has a separate citizens academy for those who are interested in learning more about the police department. Typically this academy is in the fall and fills up quickly.
