Their company is still concerned with the state of infrastructure and wants to help address the issue and help businesses understand these issue better. He believes that campaigns by Michigan Governor Whitmer have brought it more to the forefront, however roads are only a surface issue, and water, sewer, electricity and even internet are issues that need to be addressed. AND that even when the state gets things in order, local municipalities have infrastructure issues to address as well.
Infrastructure not only affects our quality of life, it is a safety issue, and ultimately an economic issue as poor infrastructure results in a decline of property values, with citizens and businesses often moving out and resulting in a lower tax base.
