A seven-member Board of Commissioners governs the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority. The Board of Commissioners meets the second Thursday of each month, where they make policy decisions for the Authority, including approving expenditures, acquiring land, planning of new parks and facilities, approving fees and charges, awarding contracts through competitive bidding, and other matters necessary to provide regional recreation. The Board appoints the Director, Deputy Director, Controller and Secretary for the Metroparks.
Two commissioners, appointed by the Governor of Michigan for a term of four years, serve as representatives at large. Five commissioners, one each to represent the counties of Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw, are appointed for a term of six years by the board of commissioners of the above-named counties.
Our commissioners are Harry E. Lester - representing Wayne County; Jaye Quadrozzi - representing Oakland County; Robert W. Marans - representing Washtenaw County; Anthony V. Marrocco, Chairman - representing Macomb County; John E. LaBelle - Vice-Chairman - representing Livingston County; Timothy J. McCarthy - Secretary - Governor Appointee and John C.
