Genesee County Board of Commissioners are seeking people to be considered for appointment on the Genesee County Road Commission.

The Genesee County Board of Road Commissioners is composed of five Board Members who are appointed by the Genesee County Board of Commissioners. They serve staggered six year terms. The Commissioners serve as an oversight board that governs the GCRC.

The Board as a group provides policy, future vision, and fiscal oversight. Michigan law specifies that a Board of County Road Commissioners “shall act as an administrative board only and the function of the board shall be limited to the formulation of policy and the performance of duties imposed by law and delegated by the board of county commissioners.”

Individuals interested in appointment to the Genesee County Road Commission should have experience managing organizations, understanding and respect for labor unions and the bargaining process, be knowledgeable about the Road Commission, and able to attend regularly scheduled board meetings on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am.

A letter of interest and updated resume should be emailed to: [email protected].

Jackson County official would be first woman to lead Genesee County Health Department

Genesee County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to offer Dr. Pamela Hackert the position as the Genesee County Health Department's new medical health officer at yesterday's Board meeting.

“(She) is an outstanding individual -- very impressive in the interview,” said Commissioner Bryant Nolden, “I think (her appointment) will really move us back to where we should be with our Health Department."

Current Health Officer, John McKellar will be retiring at the end of this month.

“He originally wanted to retire earlier than this, but then of course, COVID-19 happened, and he put the County first,” Dr. Martin Cousineau, Board Chairman said. “He recognized the situation with the crisis, and he knew that by leaving at that time it would have put the county in peril.”

Commissioners applaud John McKellar's dedication and leadership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and wish him a long and healthy retirement.

Genesee County wants to hire a woman to lead its Health Department for the first time in history.

As a small business owner in Genesee County, I ask you to immediately adopt this resolution set forth by our neighboring county, Tuscola County.
Times are very difficult for everyone these days.... Do you know who, where or when to call for resources you might need? Food distributions, medical supplies, school supplies. How about emergency assistance including SNAP or Medicaid or even just someone to talk to? CORE Learning Centers Case Managers from six counties have put together an “All County COVID 19 Community Resource Zoom Presentation.” This presentation is open to the public and is free of charge. Resources for the following counties will be covered: ALLEGANY County CATTARAUGUS County GENESEE/ORLEANS County LIVINGSTON County WYOMING County Covid-19 Community Resource Presentation via ZOOM Friday May 1,2020 2pm Registration is required. Please email [email protected] to register.
So... will Genesee county have an ordinance soon to protect essential workers from retaliation from their employers for being possibly being exposed to Covid-19 like other Michigan counties? Oakland and Wayne counties have them and they are required to be posted upon entry. They also include taking temperatures and procedures for when someone tests positive at the work site. Just asking because some of these employers are trying to retaliate against employees that don’t feel safe in their work environment.
i do not think many want to be on your board.
What is being done about the GCAC hours & why are they so limited!!!? We want answers!
Is it possible to increase the volume or enhance the quality of the sound system used by the Commissioners during meetings?
This was a great day for Genesee County! Thanks GC Board of Commissioners, thanks Culture Club!!! ❤🎶🌞🌮🍦🥤 #WALKINGTACOLUNCHEON
I believe Michigan's law governing special assessments for roads is unfair. Shouldn’t all people included in a Special Assessment have equal say in whether a petition for road improvements passes or fails when they are required to equally share the costs of those improvements? This is the link to my opinion. Please read it and if you agree, please let Governor Whitmer know by signing the petition. Also, please feel free to share this post on social media so other people will consider whether the current law on special assessments for roads is fair. Thank you.
Every one of them need to GO!!!!!!!
