Meet The Green Hornet’s Kato

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

A couple years ago I picked up the nickname “The Green Hornet” because of my work as the code enforcement officer in charge of the City’s Weed Abatement Program.  Well, I’d like to introduce my trusted sidekick … my “Kato” as it were.


He is Norm Elam, the founder and owner of Elam Service Group out of Pontiac.  Norm has been cutting Auburn Hills’ large vacant parcels for several years and has done an excellent job.  So when his company put in the best bid for residential cutting, we were very happy to grant him the contract.

So if you see his smiling face around town this summer (unless he’s wearing his dust mask) give him a wave and know that he’s doing a great job for our town.

“Let’s roll, Kato.”
