Event Information:
Please join Representative Marilyn Lane and Representative Anthony Forlini for a bipartisan discussion of how to pay for Michigan’s and Macomb County’s infrastructure needs in the future.

Topics for the meeting include the state of our crumbling roads and the governor’s proposal on how to generate money for road maintenance and new road projects in Macomb County.

“Michigan’s roads are disintegrating and there’s no long- or short-term plan in place to make the needed repairs,” Lane said.

Forlini added: “I want assurances that the current funding for infrastructure is not going behind a desk, but is actually being spent on our roads.”

Forlini and Lane will act as moderators during the forum.  Audience members will direct questions and concerns to a panel consisting of:

REPRESENTATIVE KEN GOIKE
Vice-Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation

REPRESENTATIVE LESIA LISS
Standing House Committee on Transportation

ROBERT HOEPFNER
Director of Roads, Macomb County Department of Roads

DREW BUCKNER
Manager of Macomb Transportation Center, Michigan Department Transportation

ROY C. ROSE
Civil Engineer, Vice Chair of Businesses for Better Transportation
