The Ottawa County Board of Commissioners are considering several proposals, including their taking over authority for the road system from the Road Commission. A year long study showed only 6% of roads were rated "poor", but residents seem to think road conditions are worse than they are.
Commisioners are deciding whether or not to take action. If they do, commissioners might take on more responsibilities, or require the Road Commission to perform tasks listed in the task force report. Ottawa County's board will vote on August 13th.
