Wayne County Commissioner Raymond Basham, D-Taylor, will hold three Town Hall meetings in the 14th District to discuss county issues - especially significant financial concerns - and provide residents the opportunity to ask questions.

The schedule is as follows:

  • 6 p.m. Sept. 16 at the Flat Rock Community Center, 1 Maguire St.
  • 6 p.m. Sept. 23 at the Brownstown Township Event Center, 23345 King Road.
  • 6 p.m. Oct. 1 at Taylor City Hall, 23555 Goddard Road.

"It is important that residents know what is going on with Wayne County, especially since the county is now under a state-imposed consent agreement," Commissioner Basham said. "There are so many other important issues the county is facing, including the elimination of retirees' health care, reorganization of services and the countywide budget. This will provide a good opportunity for residents to get information."

The 14th District covers Brownstown Township, Flat Rock, Rockwood, Taylor and Woodhaven.

Commissioner Basham chairs the Committee on Audit, which works closely with the county's Office of Legislative Auditor General to find ways for the county to save money and be more efficient. He also is vice-chairman of the Committee on Public Services and serves on the Committee on Public Safety, Judiciary and Homeland Security.
