The Missaukee Road Commission aims to have roads convenient for travel as early as possible following a snow event. Heavily traveled roads are the first to be addressed. Lower volume neighborhoods and rural roads are plowed next.  Plowing policies are designed to provide the highest quality of service and our drivers follow a regular route in order to plow snow efficiently. However, unpredictable weather events and financial contraints make it impossible to make winter road absolutely safe. 

Winter in Michigan means that there will be snow and ice on the roads.  Drive to conditions and slow down to be sure you get to your destination safely.


Permits are available on the “Forms” page of this website, via fax (231) 839-5381 or email at Permit fees will be changing on September 1.  Call the Road Commission for more information.

If you have an emergency situation, call our office at (231) 839-4361 from 6:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or after hours, call the Missaukee County Sheriff’s office at (231) 839-4338.

About Us

The Missaukee County Road Commission was established in 1928. The Missaukee County Road Commission has a three-member Board of Road Commissioners who are elected by the voters. The Missaukee County Board of Commissioners decides whether road commissioners are appointed or elected. Road Commissioners serve six-year terms. The terms are staggered so that all Commissioners are not up for re-election at the same time.

The county road system consists of both primary and local roads. Primary roads are generally paved roads that function as either minor or major collectors. The local road system consists of all other roads that are under the jurisdiction of the Missaukee County Road Commission. Currently we have 222 miles of Primary Roads and 634 Miles of Local Roads (including seasonal roads). In addition, the Missaukee County Road Commission maintains 132 Lane miles of State Trunkline under contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation.
