Road Improvement funding for Highland Township announced

On Thursday, June 21, members of the Oakland County Board of Commissioners voted to approve the Tri-Party Road Improvement Program for Fiscal Year 2012 for Highland Township receiving $5,020 in Tri-Party Road funding as a result of Oakland County Commissioner Bob Hoffman's resolution #12165 advocating for the funds.

Hoffman (R- representing the townships of Highland, Holly, Rose and Springfield as well as the Village of Holly in District-2) stated, "For every dollar that is spent by the township, the Road Commission for Oakland County and Oakland County will each match 1/3 of the funding for road improvement on Cooley Lake 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, Highland Township, and Oakland County which is the best approach to funding roads"

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.
