GT County Commission Changes Meetings To Mornings

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 5, 2019

Grand Traverse County commissioners will now meet early mornings instead of early evenings, a decision made by the new incoming board.

Commissioners voted 4-3 at their organizational meeting this week to change county commission meetings and study sessions from 5:30pm to 8am Wednesdays at the Governmental Center. Regular meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of each month, while study sessions are held as needed on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. The commission's next meeting will be a Wednesday, January 9 study session at 8am to discuss the county's finances, including the status of the county's pension obligation.

Also at their organizational meeting this week, commissioners voted to elect new incoming Commissioner Rob Hentschel as chair, with incumbent Commissioner Ron Clous elected vice chair.
