State Rep. Steven Johnson, of Wayland, recently hosted community members for a town hall meeting to discuss road funding with special guest Rep. Jack O’Malley, chair of the House Transportation Committee.
The discussion included an update on current road funding, a summary on the history of road funding in Michigan and potential options to continue improving the quality of our infrastructure around the state. They also discussed innovative and cost-saving ideas being tested or utilized throughout Michigan and North America.
“Ensuring the money collected for roads actually goes to roads is imperative as the discussion on Michigan’s infrastructure continues,” Johnson said. “I am looking forward to finding solutions to properly maintain our roads without raising taxes on Michigan drivers.”
The town hall took place on Wednesday, June 19 at the Wayland City Hall. For more information on items highlighted during the event, please contact Rep. Johnson’s office at (517) 373-0840 or e-mail StevenJohnson@house.mi.gov.
