The Lenawee County Board of Commissioners have set the next special meeting for September 14, 2022, at 6:00 PM to further discuss ARPA projects.
An agenda will be posted in the AGENDA CENTER (Under Board of Commissioners since this is now a full Board of Commissioners meeting).
The Board of Commissioners were unable to set the next special meeting due to scheduling conflicts and anticipate meeting again in September.
Thank you for your patience as work through this process.
The Lenawee County Board of Commissioners met on Wednesday evening, July 13, 2022 at 6:00 P.M. regarding ARPA funds. The commissioners were given a presentation after a review by the county’s legal and compliance counsel as to the applications received and allowance under the Final Rule. The board is expected to have an additional evening meeting in August to further discuss ARPA fund allocation.
Here is the presentation from the meeting:
Scheduling the next ARPA subcommittee meeting is dependent on receiving input, both from a legal standpoint and a compliance standpoint, on the Final Rule and determination of allowable uses of ARPA funds as it applies to the applications and projects that the Committee had previously identified. To date, we are still awaiting that input; therefore, no ARPA meeting has been set.
Once we have set the date and time for a meeting, another notification will be sent out. Please be sure that you have signed up for updates at https://www.lenawee.mi.us/1022/American-Rescue-Plan
The next ARPA meeting will be a “Committee of the Whole” meaning it will be a meeting for all County Commissioners to attend. The purpose of this meeting is to provide Commissioners with the information from both a legal and compliance standpoint, discuss the applications and projects that have been under consideration, and indicate which projects are allowable and which projects are not allowable per the Final Rule.
This will be a public meeting and therefore you are encouraged to attend.
