first_img Categories: Bizon News,News Plan improves Calhoun County roads without increasing taxes State Rep. Dr. John Bizon of  Battle Creek today joined a bipartisan majority of his House colleagues in approving a plan to invest an additional $175 million into road repairs across Michigan as early as this summer.“We have made a huge effort to improve our roads and bridges over the past few years, and this effort will continue during the new construction season,” Bizon said. “We have an opportunity to invest even more money to make travel safer for families and commerce with this additional surplus, and I was pleased to vote in favor of the bill.”The money included in the bill approved today comes in addition to previous changes that provide more funding for road and bridge projects in Michigan.The new bill includes money for counties, cities and villages throughout Michigan. Calhoun County will receive more than $873,550. Some of the cities and villages in line for money include Albion ($65,926) Battle Creek ($521,200) and Springfield ($44,880).The money is left over from a previous state government budget cycle and is already available, meaning no budget cuts or additional taxes are required for the investment.House Bill 4321 advances to the Senate for further consideration.###center_img 21Feb Rep.
