Closures, Hours, & Updated Protocols

Ferndale City Hall

Following a three-month closure, Ferndale City Hall will be reopened to the public with limited hours of operation effective July 6, 2020. Temporary hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Please note that City Hall services will still be offered online:

  • For payments, billing requests, and other utility services, please visit our digital payment and transaction page.
  • Keep in mind that payments can be accepted via the drop-box at the front of the building. (Please do not send cash through the drop-box; checks and money orders only.)

Kulick Community Center

The Kulick Community Center is closed at this time. All Recreation activities, events, and programming scheduled between now and August 31 have been cancelled. However, The City of Ferndale is happy to announce that outdoor park and play equipment has re-opened to the public, as of Friday, June 5. This follows Oakland County’s rescinding of Emergency Health Order 2020-8, which previously closed all playground equipment.

Police and Fire

Emergency response and patrol staffing will remain the same as usual. 911 and emergency services will not be affected. To reduce or eliminate person-to-person contact, both departments have scaled back in-person services; if you have reason to visit either department in a non-emergency capacity, please call first to learn about other options.

Public Works (DPW)

DPW will continue to perform essential services to ensure the functionality and safety of Ferndale's water, streets, sewers, and other critical infrastructure.

Community & Economic Development (CED)

Virtually all CED services are active. While some flexibility is being provided in light of current conditions, permits and licenses are still required for all applicable activities and enforcement is occurring for violations, particularly those related to life and building safety.
