Muskegon Township residents voted in favor of two millage renewals Tuesday, continuing their support for public safety and street lighting for another five years.
The public safety millage passed with a vote of 2,524 yes and 834 no, while the street lighting millage passed with 2,199 yes and 1,136 no, according to unofficial Tuesday, Aug. 4, election results from the Muskegon County clerk’s office. Township voters renewed the 2.75-mill property tax to fund police and fire services through 2024. The millage will raise $1.04 million the first year.
One mill of tax equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable value. Owners of a home with a market value of $150,000 and a taxable value of $75,000, would pay $206.25 per year for the public safety millage.
