Macomb Township's seven candidates for supervisor, clerk and treasurer fielded questions from local voters and the Macomb Township Republican Caucus Thursday at a pre-primary forum at the Clinton-Macomb Public Library main branch.
Taxes, senior services, roads, business growth and liquor licensing were just a few of the topics Macomb Township candidates addressed Thursday at the Macomb Township Republican Caucus’ first-ever Meet the Candidates forum. Held at the Clinton-Macomb Public Library main branch, 14 of the 16 candidates for supervisor, clerk, treasurer, trustee and District 13 commissioner were present to field policy and platform questions posed by local voters.

Macomb Township trustees will be asked to approve plans to pave 24 Mile Road between Card and North Avenue this Wednesday.
Summer construction on the 23 Mile Road bridge at North Avenue could prompt the township to pave 24 Mile Road between Card and North Avenue this spring. The Macomb County Department of Roads is scheduled to replace the bridge at 23 Mile Road west of North Avenue this summer and work is expected to continue through the remainder of 2012. During this construction, when 23 Mile Road is closed at North Avenue, official detours will divert traffic to 21 Mile Road and 26 Mile Road, respectively. But because drivers are more likely to make their own "unofficial" detour along the gravel section of 24 Mile Road, Macomb Township Clerk Michael Koehs said he plans to ask the board of trustees this Wednesday to approve plans to pave 24 Mile from Card …

Good morning, Macomb! Here's today's question: Driving west along 21 Mile Road in Macomb Towship, you'll pass two roads which share their names with U.S. presidents who served in the late 1800s.

The Macomb Township Board of Trustees has agreed to aside $350,000 from the 2014 budget to fund this construction.
The township board of trustees agreed Wednesday to commit $350,000 from the 2014 budget for the widening of North Avenue between Hall Road and 21 Mile. North Avenue is currently a two-lane road, but Macomb County's 2014 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) calls for the road to be widened to five lanes. The total cost of the project is estimated at $3.5 million, but with the aid of $2.8 million in federal dollars, the county and township will have only a $700,000 remaining cost to split. "We are committing to budgeting these funds and making sure those funds are available for our 2014 budget," said Clerk Michael Koehs at the board's Aug. 10 meeting. With unanimous approval by the board, the township authorized the Macomb County …
