Drain Commissioner Todd Behring
What we do…
The Drain Commissioner's Office carries many responsibilities not only to the County but the State of Michigan. The Drain Commissioner's Office is bound by state statutes in effect for over one hundred years.
The Drain Commissioner provides for oversight on public drainage over the department's area of jurisdiction and sometimes jointly with adjacent counties when warranted. The office is responsible for the maintenance of these drainage areas after being established. The Drain Commissioner is responsible for the legal establishment, and administration of drainage districts, legally set lake levels, court-ordered lake levels where dams and impoundments are involved. The office is responsible for setting up assessments, for initiating, maintaining, and spreading legal costs over an assessment area for the benefit of property owners involved in the above-mentioned issues.
