On October 28, 2019, the Ionia County Board of Commissioners voted to dissolve the Ionia County Road Commission and to assume the responsibilities. The operations necessary to maintain the roads will be carried out by the same staff as previously employed under the Ionia County Road Commission.

The Road Department Advisory Board will evaluate policies, procedures, financial and infrastructure and make recommendations to the Ionia County Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners looks forward to working with the Advisory Board, Road Department Employees, County Administration and the other local units of government to improve the financial stability and the conditions of the roads in Ionia County.
