Start Your Engines

No, not race time. Sometimes people have to react, use their instinct, fall back on training and just go. This could be a description of City Management. You never have all the information, but you take the best information you have available at the time and make a decision. You know that kind of reminds [...]

Pothole Pledge

Today our Mayor, Kevin McDaniel, signed the orange barrel as Channel 7’s Pothole Pledge. Channel 7 is reaching out to communities to commit to filling potholes within 3 days of receiving a phone call. Before we put the Mayor out there to sign such a pledge, I made a quick call to the DPW to [...]

Fleet Reduction

I like to say losing your sight is not the worst thing in the world, but losing your vision could be fatal to your organization. This is why we are driven to look forward, not just for tomorrow or next week, month or year. A continuous look forward that we keep evolving as we go [...]

Numbers

One of the things we do is look at different ways to tell our story in Auburn Hills. It is not as easy as you might think, even with all the great things we have going on. I think one of the challenges is being negative and pointing out flaws is so much easier that [...]

On The Road Again

No, not traveling, but another blog about roads. We have been planning, saving and coordinating in order to improve the infrastructure of the city.

Making a Splash in Auburn Hills

  Here we grow again. The Marines use to have a slogan “By land, by air and sea”…  well, I think we just added the sea to our resume in Auburn Hills as Great Lakes Crossing Outlets  gave us some great news over the weekend that SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium is coming to Auburn Hills. [...]

Hospital Visit

Well, not as a patient. We had the honor to visit with Nancy Susick, President of Beaumont Hospital in Troy, MI. This was a part of their community outreach program to inform their communities of the programs and services that are provided by the Beaumont Hospital system. It was very neat to see the upgrades they [...]

Jed Clampett

Now see if you can read this blog without humming “listen to a story bout a man named Jed.” I know this classic will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. For the past 4 to 5 months the city council has been exploring options with oil drilling companies looking around [...]

Pot Holes

Talk about a hot topic. Nothing like a good old fashion cold and snowy winter to have a bumper crop of pot holes. Our crews are filling the holes with cold patch, but I think the worst is yet to come. No, I am not Chicken Little and calling out that the sky is falling [...]
