Most local ballot proposals get the OK

Most area millage proposals were approved by voters in Tuesday’s election. Fort Gratiot Township  approved by about 750 votes a law enforcement millage renewal and increase. St. Clair voters also renewed a millage that would go towards the city’s pension fund by about 122 votes Tuesday. A Yale millage millage proposal for law enforcement was approved by about a two to one margin. Two local school district millage asking were also approved. Those include the Richmond Community Schools bond proposal and the Anchor Bay district’s operating millage. The only local millage that wasn’t successful yesterday was an asking in Memphis. Voters tuned down the 1.25 mill proposal which would be used to maintain and improve city owned buildings.
