Mission Statement


The Committee serves as an advocate for the citizens of the County. The Committee is charged with the sole purpose of providing recreational activities for youth and recreation for Alpena County residents, as well as, recreational service and improvement or development of recreational sites. The Committee is also responsible for recommending to the County Board of Commissioners, hereinafter referred to as "Commissioners", the prudent spending of public funds to promote youth and recreational opportunities to Alpena County citizens.

On August 3, 2010, the residents of Alpena County voted for a county youth and recreation millage. The ballot language for the millage was as follows:

Operating Millage Proposition For Youth & Recreation

"Shall the limitations on the amount of taxes which shall be assessed against all property both real and personal in Alpena County, Michigan be increased as provided in Section 6, Article IX of the Michigan Constitution, and the Alpena County Board of Commissioners be authorized to levy a tax (renewal) not to exceed one half (1/2) mill ($0.50 on each $1,000.00 of Equalized State Taxable Value) for a period of four (4) years starting with the Levy
made December 1, 2014 for the sole purpose of providing "Recreational Activities" for Youth and Recreation for Alpena County Residents, as well as, recreational service and improvement or development of recreational sites. (The estimate of revenue the County of Alpena will collect if the millage is approved and levied in the first year {2014) is $448,000)."

General Information

The Alpena County Youth and Recreation Committee, hereinafter referred to as "Committee", was officially established on September 28, 2010. The committee consists of one representative from each of the districts of the Alpena County Board of Commissioners. Terms of office for representatives from the County Commissioners districts are established to be the same as the elected members of the Board of Commissioners districts, which is a two year term.
