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 Public Hearing on Proposed Washtenaw County $345 million Bond Sale Draws Minimal Public Input http://wemu.org/post/public-hearing-proposed-washtenaw-county-345-million-bond-sale-draws-minimal-public-input <p>Washtenaw County Commissioners are considering a proposal to sell up to $345 million dollars in bonds to cover unfunded pension and retiree health care costs.
