Isabella County Considers Eliminating Road Commission Board

Posted: Updated:

Isabella County will consider eliminating their road commission board.

Right now the road commission is run by an independent board not by the county commission.

The county commission is creating a committee to review the idea of taking over the road commission's responsibilities. On Tuesday, Governor Snyder signed a bill allowing counties to do just that.

In some counties, like Isabella, voters would have to approve the idea, in others it is in the hands of county commissioners.

9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and Photojournalist Jacob Johnson have more on what this could mean.
