Why does the Township not repave my road?

The Township does not own the roads nor does it receive any dedicated tax money for road repairs and improvements. In fact, very few townships in Michigan own any roads. A majority of the roads including subdivision roads, by state law, fall under the ownership and jurisdiction of the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC).  The RCOC receives a percentage of fuel tax and registration fee money collected by the State of Michigan to maintain and improve these roads. However, the RCOC’s allocation is not adequate to maintain and improve the entire 2,700-mile road system under its jurisdiction throughout Oakland County, and residential streets do not qualify for a portion of the limited construction funds.
