Oakland County Board of Commissioners seeks citizens to serve authority

The Oakland County Board of Commissioners is seeking interested citizens to serve the community through appointment to the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority. The authority was established in 1939 by Public Act 147 to allow the counties of Oakland, Wayne, Washtenaw and Macomb to join in a metropolitan district for the purpose of planning, promoting, developing, owning, maintaining, and operating parks, connecting drives, and/or limited access highways.

Oakland County has one representative on the authority that serves a 6-year term and receives a $50 per diem for each meeting. The authority normally meets on the second Thursday of each month at 1:20 p.m.

The board seeks one individual to serve on the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority. The application deadline is Monday, Jan. 31.
