What jurisdiction does the County Road Commission have?
County road commissions, including the Wayne County Department of Public Services, have jurisdiction over all roads, except state highways in all townships in the state. County road commissions also have jurisdiction over some of the primary roads in Michigan cities and villages.

All county road commissions in Michigan receive the majority of their funding from 2 primary sources: state-collected road funds and federal road funds. Road commissions have no taxing authority and do not receive any revenues directly from property taxes. However, 13 Michigan county general governments and some townships levy millages dedicated to road maintenance.
