IN RE: BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS – REQUEST FOR LEGISLATION AMENDING AND UPDATING
THE SECONDARY ROAD PATROL FUNDING FORMULA – OFFICE OF HIGHWAY SAFETY
PLANNING, MICHIGAN STATE POLICE
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
The General Government Committee, having reviewed Miscellaneous Resolution #04124 on
May 24, 2004, reports with a recommendation that the resolution be adopted.
Chairperson, on behalf of the General Government Committee, I move acceptance of the foregoing
report.

MISCELLANEOUS RESOLUTION #04124
BY: Commissioners Peter H. Webster, District #18
IN RE: BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS – REQUEST FOR LEGISLATION AMENDING AND UPDATING
THE SECONDARY ROAD PATROL FUNDING FORMULA – OFFICE OF HIGHWAY SAFETY
PLANNING, MICHIGAN STATE POLICE
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
WHEREAS the mission of the Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP), Michigan Department of State
Police, is to save lives and reduce injuries on Michigan roads, through leadership, innovation, facilitation,
and program support in partnership with other public and private organizations; and

                                                    285
Commissioners Minutes Continued. June 3, 2004

WHEREAS the OSHP is responsible for administration of the Secondary Road Patrol (SRP) program,
which distributes SRP funds to counties for secondary road patrol and traffic accident prevention; and
WHEREAS the Michigan office of the Auditor General released a performance audit of the Office of
Highway Safety Planning in April 2004; and
WHEREAS one finding of the performance audit is that the “OHSP did not seek amendatory legislation to
modify the formula used to allocate SRP funds to counties. Therefore, counties that have had large
increases in road miles and population since 1977 are not receiving an equitable distribution of the funds
in relation to their increased responsibilities for secondary road patrol and traffic accident prevention”; and
WHEREAS the audit includes a recalculation of what the counties’ allocation of SRP funds would have
been if current road mileage and population were used; and
WHEREAS the recalculation shows that Oakland County would be eligible for an additional $204,000 in
SRP funds if current road mileage and population are used; and
WHEREAS the Auditor General recommends that the OHSP seek legislation to modify the formula used
to allocate funds to counties to ensure equitable distribution of SRP funds; and
WHEREAS the OHSP contends that the authority for amending and updating the distribution formula
rests solely with the Legislature.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners strongly urges
that the Michigan Legislature immediately introduce and enact legislation amending and updating the
distribution formula for Secondary Road Patrol (SRP) fund distribution.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners recommends that
amending legislation provide for regular updates of the funding formula.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that copies of this resolution be forwarded to all Oakland County Senators
and Representatives to the Michigan Legislature.
Chairperson, I move the foregoing resolution.
                                                            PETER WEBSTER, MICHAEL ROGERS,

MISCELLANEOUS RESOLUTION #04122
BY: Commissioner Helaine Zack, District #22
IN RE: BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS - OPPOSITION TO HOUSE BILL 5745 PROPOSED
AMENDMENT TO THE STATE CONVENTION FACILITY DEVELOPMENT ACT
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
WHEREAS the Oakland County Health Division's Office of Substance Abuse Services provides
invaluable service to the community, including: providing information and technical assistance on
substance abuse prevention and treatment services county-wide; providing financial help for uninsured,
low-income citizens for substance abuse treatment; serving as a resource on substance abuse issues to
the community at large and providing statistical data on county-wide substance abuse treatment
admissions/discharges; and
WHEREAS House Bill No. 5745 proposes to amend 1985 PA 106, entitled the "State Convention Facility
Development Act," by amending Section 10 (MCL 207.630); and
WHEREAS the Oakland County Health Division's Office of Substance Abuse Services has expressed
grave concern about proposed language that would jeopardize millions of dollars in funding that is used to
support alcohol and drug rehabilitation programming at the local level; and
WHEREAS it is estimated that this change will drain an additional $15 million annually from the State
Substance Abuse Service Network - which has already been devastated by budget reductions; and
WHEREAS the impact of further funding reductions, while the State of Michigan is simultaneously
seeking to maximize community corrections alternatives to prison and jail, places an untenable burden
upon local providers of substance abuse services; and
WHEREAS the effect in Oakland County amounts to a potential loss of approximately
$1.4 million annually in direct substance abuse treatment and prevention services; and
WHEREAS in 2003, Oakland County was able to fund 16 community coalitions and 20 substance abuse
treatment programs that provided treatment services for 1,669 clients.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Oakland County Board of Commissioners hereby
opposes language contained in House Bill No. 5745, that would amend 1985 PA 106, entitled the "State
Convention Facility Development Act," Section 10, that proposes to make the distribution for substance
abuse treatment optional - and not required.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners requests the Oakland
County Clerk to forward copies of this adopted resolution to the Michigan House Committee on Tax
Policy, the Oakland County Delegation to the State Legislature, the Michigan Association of Counties and
Oakland County's Legislative Lobbyists.

IN RE: OPPOSE GOVERNOR’S BUDGET PLAN TO COLLECT COUNTY TAXES IN JULY OF EACH
YEAR AND TO RECOMMEND TO CITIES, VILLAGES AND TOWNSHIPS LANGUAGE TO PLACE ON
SUMMER TAX STATEMENTS
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
WHEREAS through Miscellaneous Resolution #04071, the Oakland County Board of Commissioners’
unanimously opposed the Governor’s budget plan to suspend State Revenue Sharing to counties and to
permanently advance the 2004 county property tax collection date from December to July; and
WHEREAS the Governor’s plan required each county to place all of the money from the early tax
collection into a restricted fund to pay itself the equivalent of state revenue sharing each year until each
county’s fund is exhausted, leaving counties with a serious cash flow problem and causing taxpayers to
pay their county tax twice in a 12-month period; and

                                                    297
Commissioners Minutes Continued. June 3, 2004

WHEREAS a new proposal to pause State Revenue Sharing to counties has come forward that
permanently advances the county property tax collection date from December 2005 to July 2005; and
WHEREAS the new proposal requires that counties place 1/3 of the operating millage collected into a
restricted fund for three successive years for the purpose of funding State Revenue Sharing to the county
until the fund is depleted; and
WHEREAS the new proposal would force taxpayers to pay their county tax twice in a 12-month period for
the purpose of assisting the state in balancing their 2005 budget and would have the effect of forcing
property tax payers to pay four years of taxes in three years; and
WHEREAS the Governor’s proposed budget effectively shifts a statewide $1.4 billion State Revenue
Sharing responsibility from the State of Michigan’s budget to local taxpayers; and
WHEREAS it is the responsibility of local units of government in Oakland County to send out the summer
tax statements.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners opposes the
State of Michigan’s new plan to impose a new tax burden on county taxpayers by shifting $1.4 billion
statewide to county taxpayers to replace State Revenue Sharing by requiring the early collection of
county property taxes.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that should the Governor’s tax shift plan pass the Legislature, the Oakland
County Board of Commissioners requests that all local units of Government please place the following
information on their 2005 summer tax statements:
“Your summer tax bill has increased because the Governor and Legislature decided to collect county
taxes early and shift a $1.4 billion State Revenue Sharing burden to local taxpayers. Oakland County has
opposed this action and recommends that you contact the Governor and State elected officials to voice
your opinion.”
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution be sent to the legislative bodies in all Oakland County
cities, villages and townships, city, village and township clerks, the Michigan Association of Counties,
Governor Jennifer Granholm and all Oakland County state legislators.
Chairperson, I move adoption of the foregoing resolution.
