KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo’s new downsized County Board will waste no time getting the New Year underway. They will meet for the first time this evening to elect a new Chair and Vice-Chair. They shall also adopt temporary by-laws which may need some tweaking now that the board has dropped from 17 to 11 members.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. 9 of the 11 members are incumbents, and current Chair David Maturen and Vice-Chair David Buskirk both expect to be reelected to those positions. The annual organizational meeting gets underway at 7pm.
