Douglas Smith http://wemu.org en Washtenaw County Commissioners Gather Public Comment on Shelved Bond Proposal Plan http://wemu.org/post/washtenaw-county-commissioners-gather-public-comment-shelved-bond-proposal-plan <p>The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners last week decided to shelve a proposal to sell hundreds of millions of dollars in bonds. the money generated for the bond sale would have been used to cover the county's long-term pension costs and retiree health care. Commissioners decided to wait until such time the state of Michigan spells out its rules for a bond sale of this kind. Still, the issue is far from dead. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the Board of Commissioners last night went forward with a public hearing on the issue, gathering more input from the community.</p><p></p> Thu, 11 Jul 2013 13:43:10 +0000 Andrew Cluley 32021 at http://wemu.org
