To knock or not to knock? In February, the Royal Oak City Commission voted to direct the city attorney's office to prepare proposed amendments to the peddling ordinance, which would allow for the creation of a Do Not Knock registry that would be provided to anyone issued a peddler's license. The registry would also be made available on the city's website. Tonight commissioners will vote on a second reading of the amendment.

I personally am in favor of O.C.C. being able to expand. It only makes sense since there really isn't a whole lot of room for them to just incorporate buildings all through out the city. I would like to see this myself. Possibly a science lab of some sort?
