RCOC to continue to maintain township streets

By Lisa Brody


An agreement for 2021-2022 between Bloomfield Township and Road Commission of Oakland County (RCOC) to have RCOC continue to provide maintenance and preservation work to the township's local roads and subdivision streets was unanimously approved at the board of trustees meeting on Monday, February 22.


Noah Mehalski, township director of public works, explained the maintenance contract is 16 percent of the township's budget. It will increase by two percent, from $726,879.30 to $741,416.89, for the next fiscal year.


Among the maintenance and preservation work the RCOC performs for the road department of Bloomfield Township is crack sealing, concrete replacement, pothole patching, sawing of pavement, routing, plant mix patching, gravel surface patch, reshaping of gravel surface, emergency drain clean out, swath mow out, winter snow and ice removal.


Trustees voted 6-0, with Michael Schostak not in attendance.
