SUPERIOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Voters in Superior Township in Washtenaw County will be deciding on the renewal of a fire millage. The owner of a $100,000 home would pay $150 a year for the 3 year millage.
Superior Twp. Fire Chief James Roberts says "The renewal is very important to us. The fire millage
is what we survive on. It's dedicated to us."
The township's fire department protects 36 square miles.
13,000 people live in Superior Township. The fire department has 9 full-time firefighters.
"If we don't get that money we're in deep trouble," says Chief Roberts. However, he adds that residents
have never let us down in the past and millages have always passed.
He adds that the millage won't mean that anyone else will be hired, but it's necessary to keep the department in a status quo position.
There is also a renewal of law enforcement millage on the August primary ballot as well. Also in Washtenaw County, there are four city council races in Ann Arbor which are being contested.
There are also 4 running for Circuit Court Judge. The county clerk says he's seen more campaigning for this race than any other.
