The Eaton County Road Commission is governed by State law and includes a Board of five road commissioners who do not serve certain districts, but represent all people of the County of Eaton. In 2008, the Road Commission Board was expanded from a three-member board to a five-member board by the Eaton County Board of Commissioners. Later, in 2011, the Eaton County Board of Commissioners passes a resolution to reduce the number of Road Commissioners to three, by attrition. Again in 2014, the Eaton County Board of Commissioners expanded the Road Commission Board to five members. Road Commissioners in Eaton County are appointed to a six-year term of office.
