THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN ENACT:

 

                              CHAPTER IV

 

     Sec. 10. (1) The clerk and the members of a board of county

 

road commissioners are subject to 1968 PA 317, MCL 15.321 to

 


15.330.

 

     (2) The board of county road commissioners shall employ a

 

competent county highway engineer who shall make surveys ordered by

 

the board, prepare plans and specifications for roads, bridges, and

 

culverts, and exercise general supervision over construction to

 

insure that the plans and specifications are strictly followed. Two

 

or more adjoining counties may employ the same engineer, if the

 

work in 1 or more of the counties is not enough to employ the whole

 

time of the engineer. The engineer employed by the board shall be

 

known as the county highway engineer.

 

     (3) The board may also engage other professional and

 

consultant services as it considers necessary to implement this act

 

and promote efficiency and economy in the operation of the county

 

road system. The board may also employ other necessary laborers and

 

may purchase machines, tools, appliances, and materials which that

 

it considers necessary or convenient for the performance of work by

 

the laborers. In cases involving the expenditure of an amount

 

greater than $15,000.00 for the purchase of machines, tools,

 

appliances, and materials, the board of county road commissioners

 

shall advertise for sealed proposals for the machines, tools,

 

appliances, and materials proposed to be purchased, except under

 

emergency conditions, in which case the limit shall must not exceed

 

$50,000.00. All purchases made under this section shall must be

 

compiled separately for purposes of board approval. The board shall

 

advertise for sealed proposals for the purchase of passenger

 

vehicles and trucks weighing less than 5,000 pounds. The board may

 

purchase surplus properties from the state and federal governments


without advertising for sealed proposals.

 

     (4) Each county road commission shall take all reasonable

 

steps to ensure minority business enterprises have the equal

 

opportunity to compete and perform contracts or purchases of

 

services, or both, for the county road commission. The county road

 

commission shall issue a plan for implementing this subsection.

 

     (5) A county road commission may enter into a contract or

 

agreement for the purchase of real or personal property for public

 

purposes, to be paid for in installments over a period not to

 

exceed 15 30 years or the useful life of the property acquired,

 

whichever is less. Real or personal property purchased under this

 

act may serve as collateral in support of the purchase, contract,

 

or agreement.
