Sorry, Tatertots, this bill has nothing to do with entitlements. Forget about Detroit and think local!
This passage was a bad idea, and will prove to be so. In the case of the Board of Commissioners, especially in the Northern Counties, they are not full time, lets call them employees, of a county. They are citizens elected by their peers.
Do they have knowledge, engineering, etc. needed to construct, maintain our roads and highways? NO!! It should have been left up to the Road Commission who employ at the County level, qualified engineers and knowledge crews.
You think Michigan roads are in bad shape now, just wait until a Board of Commissioners take over! Can't believe what ridiculous ideas and behavior this Legislature is coming up with. When can we get rid of them???????????????
