OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. -- Tuesday afternoon, residents sounded off on a controversial drain plan at the Ottawa County Commission board meeting.

About 700 property owners are slated to pay for the new drain. Their share of the bill is $2.1 million. They said it's not fair, since 1800 property owners are within the drainage district.
