How can I get my road paved?

Most paved local roads in Muskegon County were improved using private development funds or contributions from township government. The level of funding provided to the road commission by law is not sufficient to pay for the initial paving of a road. 

Although township government has no responsibility for road maintenance or improvement, and does not receive any road tax money, they have been very supportive of county roads over the years; and you may wish to contact them to see if they have any plans to improve your road in the future. By law road commissions are allowed to spend only up to 50% of the cost of improvements for local roads. The other amount must come from other sources.
