The State Survey and Remonumentation Act, Public Act 345 of 1990 states that each County in the State of Michigan shall prepare a County Remonumentation Plan.  In addition, Public Act 345 of 1990, specifically MCL 54.296b, requires that Peer Review Group members be appointed by the County Board of Commissioners. 

The Peer Review Group shall include only Professional Surveyors licensed in the State of Michigan or retired surveyors previously licensed in the State of Michigan.  Each member of the Peer Review Group shall be compensated an hourly rate adjusted yearly according to the annual grant budget.  However, if more than one Surveyor from the same company is appointed to the Peer Review Group, they will share only one vote and they will share only one fee. 

The responsibility of the County Peer Review Group is to review and provide advice on original public land survey corners or protracted public land survey corners presented by surveyors before the county accepts the original public land survey or protracted public land survey corners for filing under its county remonumentation plan.
