Millage advisory committee

In the spring of 2019, the Washtenaw County Community Mental Health agency established a Millage Advisory Committee (MAC) to provide strategic oversight regarding Washtenaw County’s Public Safety and Mental Health Millage activities and investments. 

The 13-member advisory committee, chaired by St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea President and CEO Nancy Graebner, is a subcommittee of the Washtenaw County Community Mental Health Board and reports to the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners as required. MAC meetings are open to the public and include a forum for public comments.

The MAC meets the second Monday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Note that once per quarter, these meetings shift to 4:00 p.m. so MAC members can attend other scheduled committee meetings. Meetings are held at the Washtenaw County Learning Resource Center in Ann Arbor at 4135 Washtenaw Avenue. Review agendas (prior to meetings) and minutes (following approval) here.
