Sanilac County Finance and Administration Committee hears presentation from President of Lean and Green Mich.

(SANILAC COUNTY) -- The Sanilac County Finance and Administration Committee met Tuesday afternoon and received a presentation from Andy Levin, the President of Lean and Green Michigan. Levin told committee members about the PACE program that is being implemented throughout the United States. PACE stands for Property Assessed Clean Energy. The program is designed to help businesses save money, create jobs, and grow the tax base while providing green energy. It requires no taxpayer money, as the county would simply be giving its businesses a property tax tool to make long-term financing work for clean energy projects. Committee members unanimously voted to move the measure to the Board of Commissioners next week for consideration. If passed, a public hearing will be held at a later date to discuss the program. In other business, the committee approved a request from IT Director Nancy Rich to purchase three new computers for the Sheriff's Correction and Uniform Services offices, at a price not to exceed $21,056.
