Green Means Slow
This winter Lapeer County residents will begin seeing the green lights on our trucks maintaining State Roads within the County. Pending positive feedback our fleet will eventually all have the green lights to enhance the safety of residents and our drivers.
Mailbox Damage Caused by Road Commission Operations:
Occasionally, the Road Commission, as a result of its daily activities such as grading and snow plowing, may accidentially strike, knock down or damage a mailbox. Because of statutory responsiblity of the Road Commission to maintain the roadways and County right-of-ways, the agency is not held liable or responsible for any damage caused to private installations located within those roads and/or right-of-ways. However, the Road Commission shall offer the owner a replacement post and mailbox, which will be available at the Road Commission office.
