(Community Matters 28) Property Values, Road Repairs, Public Transit: Calhoun County Update

First Aired April 22, 2023

In the latest update from Calhoun County Government, Commission Vice-Chair Steve Frisbie and Administrator Kelli Scott discuss:

  • The purpose of the Board of Commissioners Equalization Session in April and the overall equalization process to determine property values.
  • A continuing focus on road repairs in the county – particularly in smaller townships where a need for repairs remains.
  • A preview of an upcoming focus on the potential to increase public transit options in Calhoun County.

Frisbie also offers a viewpoint about the Ford BlueOval Battery Plant slated for Marshall. Specifically, he discusses the “out of the loop” perspective some residents have expressed about the project.
