Three counties in Michigan are getting the tools they need to fight blight in their area.
Dickinson, Eaton and Huron counties are being given the fund to start county land banks in their areas to help revive vacant properties.
“We look forward to coordinating with our county agencies, cities, villages and townships to improve the quality of our area for both local residents and visitors,” said Huron County Treasurer Debra McCollum.
Huron County won’t have to rely on the state land bank to remove blight from neighborhoods within the county. The state will continue to serve as support for the local land banks.
