Voters in St. Joe County approve four millage questions

2018-08-09

CENTREVILLE – All four millage proposals presented to St. Joseph County voters in the Tuesday Primary Election passed.

The County Transportation Authority was asking for a renewal of their .33 of a mill for a four year period. That was approved 4550 to 2089. The renewal will generate just over $600,000 a year which is roughly one-third of the CTA's annual budget.

Voters in the Burr Oak School District voted 125 to 43 in favor of allowing the School to levy the statutory rate of not to exceed 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law.

Flowerfield Township residents approved a proposal to increase a millage to 1 mill a year for five years for fire protection and ambulance service within the Township. The proposal passed 170 to 112. The increase would raise an estimated $64,307 in the first year.

Colon Township residents were presented with a proposal for .8944 mills for five years to provide funds for operating, maintaining, constructing and equipping the Colon Township Library. It passed 345 to 108.
