New Jail - an Antrim County facilities forum with Networks Northwest as the facilitator will present a meeting on Tuesdsay, April 23 at Meguzee Hall located inside Meadowbrook Medical Care Facility in Bellaire at 6 p.m. Networks Northwest will develop a report summarizing the public’s input identifying priorities/desired options; and identify next steps for planning and community participation. It was agreed upon that a survey with a link would be available for the people who can’t make this meeting to be able to voice their opinions on the new jail/location.


Inclement weather - An inclement weather policy was discussed due to bad weather this winter. Previous policy never closed the County. Majority felt that if the Sheriff Department AND the Road Commission said the roads are really bad it will then be up to the Administrator whether the County Building will be closed.


Deputy Administrator - the last day for Deputy Administrator Matt Cook will be March 15th. He will be going to Networks Northwest to work in the Transportation area. The position has been advertised with Michigan Association of Counties.
