Mike Verstraete | Streets & Drains Operations Manager
The Streets and Drains Division ensures a safe environment for Troy residents and guests through maintenance of the local, county, and major road network, and the storm water drainage system of the City of Troy.
The Streets and Drains Division provides maintenance, repair and replacement to a network of 364 miles of Local, Major and County roads, street lighting, traffic control signs, and 500 miles of sidewalks. They investigate residential storm water issues and work to maintain a highly efficient storm water drainage system as regulated by the Oakland County Storm Water Permit and MDEQ. They also assist other departments or agencies in securing a safe environment during emergency situations.
Did you know that the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has jurisdiction over many of the major roads in Troy? The Department of Public Works is responsible for salting and snow removal on County roads but general maintenance, such as pothole patching, is performed by RCOC. Request for service on County roads can be submitted through their contact form or directed to RCOC at 877.858.4804.
