VBCRC grateful for supportPublished 10:57pm Wednesday, August 15, 2012
To the editor:
On behalf of both myself, and the Board of County Road Commissioners, I wish to thank all of those voters in Van Buren County who came out to support the countywide road millage proposal on Aug. 7.
These funds have and will continue to be a very important part of the road improvement program in Van Buren County.
Because the Road Commission has these millage funds available, it is able to provide a more efficient turn-round for projects across the county.
In addition, the millage funds allow the Road Commission to leverage federal funds.
As taxpayers and voters in Van Buren County, we urge you to continue to maintain a level of interest in the roads you travel every day.
Be it county, township, city or village, all of the roads in the county form an integral network that serves our agricultural community, industry, tourism and all of us.
That being the case, the Van Buren County Road Commission wishes to express its gratitude to those of you who supported the countywide road millage.
The Road Commission will continue to strive to make improvements upon the many things that have been accomplished in the past.
Van Buren County Road Commission
Lawrence B. Hummel, P.E.
