The Lenawee County Fair closed on Saturday and many members of the Lenawee County team took part in the fair to make it a safe, fun, and educational experience. MSU Extension and all of the 4-H coordinators and volunteers made the fair a great experience for our young people involved in 4-H. The Sheriff’s Office, with their reserves and Mounted Division, ensured a safe environment for fair goers. The Health Department works to make the fair experience a good one with inspections of food providers so that we can satisfy our “fair food” cravings in confidence. Several county commissioners volunteered at booths for service organizations and County departments, as well as other contributions to the fair.
The 2017 Faster Horses concert ended the same day that the county fair started. Both the Sheriff’s Office and Health Department are to be commended for all their extra efforts to keep events running smoothly.
We also took advantage of the fair, and the great cross section of county residents at the fair, to provide information about the November ballot proposal to renew the set tax limitations in the county. The County recycling office and Habitat for Humanity made room in their booth for our informational videos and packets. The videos tell some great stories about how County services are assisting county citizens in their daily lives. Those same informational videos are available on the County website at www.lenawee.mi.us. We are working to inform county voters of the decision before them so that they can make their choice about the direction of County government.
In addition to information provided at the Lenawee County Fair, we have been attending meetings at local governments to let those officials know what the countywide ballot issue in November means to County government operations. We will also be going to service clubs and any other interested groups to provide any information they are interested in.
At their July 12th board meeting the Board of Commissioners received a report and listened to a presentation on the housing market study and target market analysis performed by Novogradac & Co. The study and report provide information to local units of government and also provide them with a foundation to use in grant applications and housing development.
