Road Commission plans 3-mill request

The St. Joseph County Road Commission hopes to proceed with plans to seek a 3-mill request for road improvements in every municipal entity in the county.
Details of the plan and the Centreville-based agency’s financial state were presented Thursday to St. Joseph County’s township supervisors at their quarterly meeting in White Pigeon.
David Yunker, a member of the road commission board, said the 3-mill request, if approved, would generate about $3.6 million annually over its 10-year life. He said 1 mill would be allocated for primary roads and the balance would be distributed for use on local roads.
He said the money would be split between the county’s 16 townships, six villages and two cities based on the taxable value of each entity.
Yunker said based on feedback from supervisors, the request could appear before voters in November, an option preferred over August.
