Currently the President’s proposal calls for an 80% match from states and cities while promising to streamline project delivery by reducing regulation. The proposal also calls for embracing innovation in the way that infrastructure is designed, built and maintained.

“Advocating for Rochester Hills is one of my most important responsibilities and to be asked to participate in this critical discussion with the decision makers at the White House allows me to uniquely add a Rochester Hills perspective to the proposal”, states Mayor Barnett, “I appreciate the invitation from President Trump and look forward to finding solutions to this massive infrastructure issue which will benefit my city and the greater community.”

Mayor Bryan K. Barnett plans to fly to Washington D.C. on Thursday and fly back that evening.
