Commissioner announces funds for roads

Members of the Oakland County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to approve Oakland County Commissioner Bob Hoffman's resolutions requesting $33,983 each for Tri-Party Road funding for the townships of Groveland and Springfield's road project #49902. These funds will be allocated and used for immediate road improvements for Oak Hill Road.

Hoffman (R-representing the townships of Groveland, Highland, Holly, Rose and Springfield as well as the Village of Holly in District-2) stated, "For every dollar that is spent by the townships, the Road Commission for Oakland County and Oakland County will each match 1/3 of the funding for road improvement on Oak Hill Road that is a two for one return on this investment. This is the best approach to leverage funding for roads especially as municipal budgets tighten. This effort is a collaboration between the Road Commission for Oakland County, the townships, and Oakland County which is the best approach to road funding"

Since 1973, the Tri-Party Program has raised revenue and awareness on the issues of roads. The Tri-Party Program consists of Oakland County, the Road Commission for Oakland County and local governments with each providing one-third equally in funding for county road projects in local communities.

This program has been well received since its inception. County residents have witnessed an improvement in travel conditions in Oakland County's rural communities. Another benefit of the Tri-Party Program is the significant road improvements traffic and safety measures that are provided to participating cities, villages, and townships throughout the county.
