10/10/2018- The Menominee County Road Commission could be expanding. Tuesday night, the County’s Board of Commissioners considered increasing the number of county road commissioners from three to five at the request of several county commissioners. Residents took advantage of the meeting’s public comment portion to also voice their support of the move. Peter Kleimann says more road commissioners means more input and better discussion on important issues.
It was suggested that the two additional road commissioners be appointed by the county board, unlike the other three that are elected. County Commissioner Jan Hafeman says that would ensure all parts of the county are represented.
