Rochester Hills approves OPC agreement

Rochester Hills City Council members on Monday, January 8, unanimously approved an amended and updated interlocal agreement among Rochester, Oakland Township, Rochester Hills and the Older Persons' Commission (OPC).

Renee Cortright, executive director of the OPC, told council members at the meeting that the purpose of the new agreement was to incorporate four separate agreements into one interlocal agreement amongst the four parties.

"Over the years, there have been discussions about having to look back at four different agreements is cumbersome," she said.

The agreement has been reviewed by legal representatives from each of the participating communities, with Rochester approving the agreement in November.

"No substantial changes are proposed, but two noteworthy clarifications are made," said Rochester Hills City Attorney John Staran. "First, a previously omitted reference to the office of "Treasurer" is being added to Article I, Section 4. Second, paragraph D in Article V, Section 4 is being deleted to reflect that the OPC has its own bank account and no longer keeps its funds in Rochester Hills' accounts."

Other updated changes were made to keep the document current and incorporate amendments approved since the original agreement, which was approved in 1983.
