Douglas D. Enos, Midland County Drain Commissioner
I am honored to be serving as the President of this organization I hope that my term as President will be marked as one of progress, patience, understanding, and cooperation. I am hopeful that we are able to advance our legislative agenda; that agreements can be reached with MDEQ and USEPA regarding acceptable wording for changes to Parts 301 and 303 of NREPA; that current cases before the judicial system may be decided in a manner favorable to both MACDC and the people of the State of Michigan; and that MACDC, its member counties and its associate members will continue to thrive and prosper as the future unfolds.
I am humbled by the confidence bestowed upon me in being selected for this position. With help from previous and current leaders and supporters, I look forward to helping to meet the challenges we will face. Thank you for the opportunity.
