The Missaukee County Housing Committee has been trying to work though some inspections and get individuals to complete applications and send them in, county administrator Precia Garland said.

“The county commission did approve the sale of property in Manton we had foreclosed on because the mortgage had (elapsed) and (the new owner) is planning on rehabilitating it and turning it into a rental site,” Garland said. “That’s good news in the sense we’ll have that property back on the tax roll and available for current housing.”

The commission had a work session last Thursday on strategic planning.

“We had one meeting previously where we invited members of the community to come out and discuss issues of the county,” Garland said “We went through an analysis with strengths and weaknesses. It’s been assimilated into data and we will work on developing some priorities and objectives so we have a focus plan on where we’d like our county government to go.”’

“We’re working on a mission and vision statement for the county. I’m thinking we’ll probably need an additional meeting. The report will be prepared and brought back to the commission for both. It will be sometime this spring.”
