In 2014, services and departments at historic City Hall relocated to the Dearborn Administrative Center (DAC) at 16901 Michigan Avenue, near the Southfield freeway.

The Mayor’s Office, City Council, City Clerk and many administrative departments are now conducting business at the DAC.

The DAC sits on western edge of the city’s municipal complex, which includes the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, the Police Station and 19th District Court, the Henry Ford Centennial Library, and an athletic field.

Customers find it easier to navigate in the new building, with many popular services provided at a comprehensive counter immediately in the main entrance. A staff person is stationed in front of the main service counter to direct and assist.

Getting a birth certificate, registering to vote, applying for a building permit or certificate of occupancy, paying taxes and water bills, or filing a Homestead Property Tax Credit are among the services provided within a few steps of the main door of the DAC.

Along with the Mayor’s Office, City Council and City Clerk, the departments that have relocated to the DAC are Assessor’s, Economic and Community Development, Engineering, Finance, Treasury, Housing, Human Resources, Law and City Plan, Management Information Systems, Public Information, and Residential Services.

Departments still located in their own facilities are the Department of Public Works, Recreation and Parks, Libraries, Fire, Police and the Historical Museum.

For more information, please call the Department of Public Information at 313-943-2285.
