ROLL CALL:  Yeas, Solmes, Fiala, & Dykstra

Nays, None

Motion Carried

 

Purpose:

 

To provide for safe operation of Barry County Roads by providing traffic speeds that reflect those required in the Michigan Motor Vehicle Code (MVC).  The MVC has set procedures for setting speeds on every segment of roadway under the BCRC’s jurisdiction.  The MVC has also set procedures for amending these limits.

 

Support:

 

The MVC sections 257.627 & 257.628 in their entireties encompass setting current speed limits as well as procedures in which to follow in the event that a stakeholder determines that in their opinion the speed limit is improper.  Proper signage for these limits is also covered in the MVC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speed Limit Policy Cont.

 

Responsibility:

 

It is the responsibility of the Engineering department to oversee speed limit setting, handle requests and execute the procedures set forth in the MVC to ensure compliance to this policy.  It is the responsibility of the sign department to place and maintain all speed limit signs.

 

Procedures:

 

Setting Current Speed Limits

Current speed limits as set by use of the MVC or by previous Traffic Control Order (TCO) shall be recorded and signed as per the MVC.

 

Assessment methods

The BCRC will confer the most up to date MVC to determine, set, and post speed limits.  Request for speed studies shall be received from the townships on the resolution template included in this policy.  Once a signed resolution has been received or the BCRC has determined their own reasoning of need, the BCRC shall conduct the speed study as per the MVC.

The Hope Township Board of Trustees has approved the Road Commission’s four year plan that you proposed for road repairs & maintenance with the following payments:  $150,000 for each of four years 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.  This will include gravel and dust control.

 

 

 

 

Dave Schurr from 11930 Lakeway Drive spoke to the Board about Lakeway Drive not being where the plat map shows the road should be due to a tree that causes cars to go around it and shifting where the road is.   This situation has caused him to lose some of his property and his ability to install a car port.   The Board discussed the situation with Mr. Schurr.  Even if the tree was removed the road would not be moved due to other hindrances being built over the years and would not be put where the plat map states it should be.  The Board advised him to go to Planning and Zoning in his Township for input on what could be done with the road in its current position.

Gravel Road Update

We realize the gravel roads are in tough shape right now. With the freeze, thaw, rain, freeze, snow cycles we have had, it has made up keeping them very difficult. Our gravel piles are frozen solid. Often in the winter we will fill the holes with gravel knowing that it will inevitably blow out but it’s a temporary fix. We can’t even do that right now. As soon as Mother Nature allows us to we will address them with a fury. Please lower your speeds and use caution for the near future. Thanks for your understanding!!!
