Ionia County Roads are in desperate need of repair.  Some of the worst roads are the costliest to improve as they have many cracks, ruts, and pot holes.  The Ionia County Road Commission is proposing a solution that can improve over 55 miles of these roads that are in the poorest condition.

This solution, would involve an affirmative vote of the people of Ionia County.  It would resurface these roads, eliminating rutting and potholes, improving ride quality.  A chip seal would follow the resurfacing to preserve the newly paved surface.  This process has been statistically proven to increase the life of the asphalt for a relatively small additional cost.

In 2016 and 2017 the road commission has performed a few of these projects, and are happy with results.  It is a vast improvement to the surface while still being economical.

Ionia County is proposing on the August 7th ballot an increase of 1 mill per year for 6 years to repair and improve roads.  This increase would provide approximately 1.5 million dollars annually.  The cost to tax payers is $1 per $1000 in taxable value annually.
