Board of Public Works

The Barry County Board of Public Works was established and organized under Act 185 of 1957, as amended. The Board of Public Works can be involved in any of the following projects:
• Water supply system
• Sewage disposal system
• Refuse system
• Lake improvements
• Erosion control system

The Barry County Board of Public works consists of five members: the Drain Commissioner, three members of the Board of Commissioners and the Managing Director of the Barry County Road Commission. The Drain Commissioner is the elected Secretary for the Board of Public Works with Drain Office staff providing administrative support.

Local municipalities contract through the County Board of Public Works for funding purposes of a specific project, which must be approved by the County Board of Commissioners. By utilizing the County’s bond rating, the local municipality receives more favorable and affordable financing. The County of Barry/Board of Public Works is the owner of record for the project until the incurred debt is paid in full.
