UNDER THE RADAR: Small township, many miles
Commissioners have ‘absolute authority over roads’
HARMON – Some people like to fish during retirement. Not Jim Jackson, road commissioner for Harmon Township.
“I’d rather be grading roads than going on vacation,” said Jackson, 72, a retired truck driver.
He has been road commissioner for 8 years and is running unopposed for a third term April 9. His township has a population of 378 – the eighth smallest of Lee County’s 22 townships.
