WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Voters in Waterford Township are being asked to renew two millages in the August 7 th, primary election.
One could have a big impact on public safety; the other could affect the future of the township’s library.
The fire millage renewal pays for 13 firefighters and one EMS vehicle.
The money generated by the millage will only be used in Waterford Township.
Supporters of the measure warn that if the measure fails, firefighters will lose their jobs and a fire station in the township would likely closed.
Voters will also decide whether to renew the library millage.
A yes vote will provide crucial funds to the Waterford Public Library for the next ten years.
Library officials say the branch would likely close if the millage is not renewed.
Township officials want to remind voters that both of these millages are renewals.
If they pass, there will be no increase in cost for residents.
