City offers numerous resources to assist residents
The City of Novi understands the importance of having an informed citizenry. And while many residents still like stopping by the Novi Civic Center or picking up the phone, there are numerous other options available to keep them connected.

A good place to start is cityofnovi.org, a one-stop shop for information about City services, programming, ordinances and anything else a resident may need. Located conveniently on the main page with a bell icon, the Citizen Self-Help Knowledge Base, contains links to your most frequently asked questions, as well as a form to request assistance from a City department. 

The City also operates Facebook and Twitter accounts that provide up-to-the-minute updates and other information about City services and events. If you have a little more time to spare, the City's YouTube page features a variety of programs that offer public safety tips, library news, business features, events and more.

There also are a variety of e-newsletters residents can sign up for (and no we will not spam you). "I Am Novi" comes out twice a month and highlights important events or upcoming deadlines. "Destination Recreation" comes out the other two weeks and provides information about recreation opportunities in the City. "Drive, Ride, Walk" comes out once a week during construction season and provides updates on construction in Novi, Oakland County and the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Any questions can be directed to communityrelations@cityofnovi.org or 248.735.5628.
