TitlePolicy
Land UseWashtenaw County Farm Bureau supports efforts to preserve farmland in Washtenaw County without infringing on property rights of farmers.
Road CommissionersWashtenaw County Farm Bureau opposes increasing the number of Washtenaw County Road Commissioners from 3 to 5 in order that the commission can operate as cost effectively and efficiently as possible.
Road Commission BudgetWashtenaw County Farm Bureau supports a Washtenaw County Road Commission budget, which allocates more funds for actual road maintenance and improvement and less for administration.
Slow Moving VehiclesWe resolve that Washtenaw County Farm Bureau direct Washtenaw County sheriff's department to warn property owners that are using slow-moving vehicle signs for purposes other than slow-moving vehicles, remove them from public view.
Road Safety/Visibility SafetyThe Washtenaw County Farm Bureau recommends that the Washtenaw County Road Commission should mow intersections as needed throughout the year. This is important for both safety and visibility.
Tile, Irrigation and Culvert Permits• We encourage Washtenaw County Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors to resolve issues surrounding permits regarding but not limited to culverts, tile, and irrigation lines crossing the roadways. Background: Local farms are having issue with the permit cost and requirements. Roads were not being repaired in some cases causing the requirements of permits.
