In a very brief and uneventful meeting September 8, Clare County Road Commissioner Dick Haynak reported to Grant Township’s board the summer work progress around the area.

“We are caught up on our summer work,” he said, “and finishing up on chip and seal projects.” He said a mild winter last year has left the county with some salt for the coming year, and that salt prices for this year are $20 per ton cheaper than they were. “Things are getting a little better,” he said. “Our goal now is to reinstate a fund matching program with the townships. It will depend on what Lansing does.”

He also reported that, in two phases, a thin overlay of asphalt had been put on Colonville Road beginning at Eberhart Road and for four miles east. “It should help extend the life of the road,” Haynak said.

County Commissioner Leonard Strouse also made a report to the board on the activities at the county level. “We are working on the budget,” he said. He reported giving a raise to the Equalization Director and that the board is looking at borrowing funds to repair the county building. “We have also been talking about having night meetings,” he said.

With no old or new business to discuss, the board approved $10,701.13 in bills for the month, listed building permits and adjourned the meeting just after 8 p.m.
The next monthly meeting will be on October 13 at 7:30 p.m.
