Budget Cuts and New Contract Save Clare County $60,000

Clare County commissioners say budget cuts and a new contract with a neighboring county will save $60,000. The board approved a contract Wednesday to use Isabella County's Building Inspection Department. Clare County will continue to issue building permits, with Isabella County building inspectors doing the inspections. Those on the board say it's a win-win situation, and will keep the inspectors busy. Clare County's current contract with Isabella County runs until the end of September.
