Notice is Hereby Given that on February 22, 2018, the Hillsdale County Drain Commissioner will hold a Day of Review of Drainage District Boundaries and Day of Review of Apportionments from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the office of the Hillsdale County Drain Commissioner, 29 North Howell Street, Room 15, Hillsdale, MI 49242.

The Day of Review is an opportunity to review the Drainage District boundaries and apportionment of benefit for the Drains listed below with the Drain Commissioner or a staff member. A map of the proposed Drainage District boundary revisions can be found on the Hillsdale County website. http://www.co.hillsdale.mi.us/index.php/drains

 

The Drain Commissioner, engineers, and/or other staff members will be available to assist individuals throughout the day, and make revisions where necessary.
