Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On February 27, 2008, the Transportation Committee unanimously recommended approval of the Secondary Road Six-Year Plan and Budget, as presented in the draft resolution.  The Transportation Committee recommended the deletion of Washwright Road (Marshall District) for reconstruction and surface treatment.  This project had been included in the Fiscal Year 2007-2008 priority list.  Several Citizens from Washwright Road spoke at the Transportation Committee meeting to request removal of this project from the priority list.  No new projects have been added to the list since last year.
