The Road Commission is governed by a board of five Road Commissioners who represent the public at large, and are appointed by the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners. Our Road Commissioners annually review township representation to be a liaison and additional communication link as noted below.
The Board's regular meetings, to which the public is invited, are held at 3:00 p.m. on alternate Tuesdays at the Road Commission office, 3801 East Kilgore Road, Kalamazoo, Michigan. A meeting schedule can also be found on the "Meetings" section of this website. From time to time, additional special board meetings are held and joint meetings are scheduled with townships throughout the county annually.
