Millage renewal passes
August 8, 2012 by WLKM
Two county millage renewal requests and an additional renewal request in White Pigeon Township were approved during Tuesday’s primary election.
The countywide votes saw the St. Joseph County Commission on Aging earn a six-year renewal of three-quarters of a mill. In addition, three-quarters of a mill renewal for six years was granted to the county E-911 central dispatch.
Both renewals, which passed with support from about 75 percent of voters, were for basic operations and will generate about $1.1 million annually for each entity.
Meanwhile, White Pigeon Township Library will continue to receive about $60,000 a year for four years starting in 2013, after voters in its jurisdiction agreed to renew three-tenths of a mill.
The request was approved by a 4-to-1 margin.
