Road Commission Chairman explains bond issue
In September the Emmet County Board of Commissioners approved a $3.3 million bond issuance on behalf of the Emmet County Road Commission. Because of a state law that prevents road commissions from seeking capital funds through bonds, they must go through county boards of commissioners to utilize bond funding. The Road Commission is responsible for paying off the bond over 15 years, using some of the agency’s annual allowance from Michigan’s state transportation fund to make the payments. With the approval in place, the Road Commission plans to spend the $3.3 million on replacing its aging Levering Road complex as well as some other projects. Road Commission Chairman Frank Zulski explains the project needs in a special letter you can read by clicking here.
