The Paint Creek Trailways Commission is an intergovernmental agency formed under the Urban Cooperation Act of 1967. As part of the intergovernmental agreement, the Paint Creek Trailways Commissioners are appointed by our local City Councils and Board of Trustees, depending on the municipality. Each community is given two Commissioners and two Alternate Commissioners, and they consist of elected officials and citizens. The Commission is responsible for the ownership and maintenance of the Paint Creek Trail.

The Trailways Commission meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm. The meetings are held at either the Paint Creek Cider Mill Building, 4480 Orion Road, Oakland Township, 48306,  or at the Rochester Municipal Offices, 400 Sixth Street, Rochester, 48306.
