On Wednesday, July 6, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution to place a four-year road & non-motorized path millage (named the “Washtenaw Road Funding Solution”) on the November 6 general election ballot. If approved by voters, the ballot measure would levy 0.5-mills and raise approximately $7.2 million countywide, at an average cost of $35 per year for homeowners.
After 32 years of service at the Washtenaw County Road Commission, District #3 Foreman, Dave Trinkle, will retire at the end of June 2016. Mr. Trinkle began his career at WCRC in 1984 as a light truck driver and has worked as the District #3 Foreman since 2009. WCRC thanks Mr. Trinkle for his years of service maintaining the roads in Lyndon, Dexter, Sylvan and Lima townships.
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) recently held a roundabout public service announcement (PSA) competition with students in Saline High School’s video production class.
The competition challenged students to develop effective, 30- or 60-second PSAs that addressed motorists’ “failure to yield” and explained how to enter roundabouts correctly.
