The Oakland County Federal Aid Committee (FAC), which selects projects to receive federal road funding in the county, will conduct a Task Force/Funding Committee meeting on Oct. 11 at the Oak Park City Council Chambers, 14000 Oak Park Blvd., Oak Park, MI. The meeting begins at 9 a.m.
The Funding Committee has selected road-improvement projects through 2019 that will receive federal funds anticipated to come to Oakland County. It is made up of representatives of the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), SMART (the suburban bus system), Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) and all communities in the county.
During the meeting, the Funding Committee will discuss the status of current and future federal-aid-funded projects throughout Oakland County. In addition, the committee will discuss the 2020 call for projects. It is anticipated that approximately $16 million in federal funding will be available in 2020.
The committee also will review proposed revisions to its project application forms. Additionally, the committee will hold elections for some seats whose terms expire in December.
Projects selected must be on federal-aid eligible roads under the jurisdiction of the Road Commission or cities/villages in Oakland County.
