On Monday, March 16, 2020, Mayor LeRoy D. Burcroff officially declared a State of Emergency in the City of Romulus in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Due to the City's unique location with multiple forms of transportation and transient populations, declaring a State of Emergency allowed the city access to additional funding and resources to respond to its increased risk to the virus.
Governor Whitmer's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Executive Order was lifted on June 1, 2020. As a result, Romulus City Hall reopened at 8 am. Monday, June 8, 2020. The Building and Public Works Departments are now open at full capacity. While walk-in traffic is permitted, appointments are still highly encouraged to help us schedule for capacity guidelines and screening for visitors. Residents are encouraged to visit the city's website with questions. If additional assistance is needed, residents can feel free to call any one of the city departments.
Romulus Senior Center and Romulus Animal Shelter are available by appointment only, and the Senior Center is continuing to provide services to older residents, including Meals on Wheels and commodities/Focus: HOPE distribution. Romulus Public Library and the Romulus Athletic Center remain closed at this time. All public events and activities will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
