Star Hughston has been among the McBain area residents sitting on the Missaukee County Board of Commissioners enduring what’s been basically a quiet summer so far.

“We’re doing good financially,” Hughston said.

Roads continue to be in good general shape throughout the county, Hughston indicated.

“It’s been tough with a lot of big equipment going down our roads,” he said. “The roads are getting a little beat up. That comes with living in a rural county.”

County administrator Patricia Garland, recently explained the county’s docushare program, how it is utilized, and how the digital record it holds are extremely critical for preservation.

Garland told the finance committee at this month’s meeting that the server that hosts docushare is 9 years old, nearing full capacity, and needs replacing. One quote has been obtained, and Garland said she will obtain two more. She indicated she would have the Buildings and Grounds Committee consider this item at a future meeting.

Garland presented a request from Michigan Municipal League. The request is for the Board of Commissioners to complete a ballot for the MML Worker’s Compensation Board of Trustees. The Missaukee Board of Commissioners is asked to review the biographical sketches for the candidates running and consider casting a ballot for not more than five members.
