School bond, more powers for Hillsdale mayor and council on Tuesday’s ballot

HILLSDALE COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS)– Voters in Hillsdale will soon decide if the mayor and city council will get more power in office.

Two proposals on the Aug. 4 primary ballot would give the mayor the power to appoint the city treasurer and city clerk.

However, the city council would have to sign off on the mayoral appointment first.

Under the proposals, council members would also decide the term, pay and conditions of employment for both the treasurer and clerk.

Voters in Hillsdale County will also decide whether Pittsford Area Schools can borrow $6.46 million as part of a tax bond proposal for school facility equipment, development and improvements.

The bond millage rate would be 3.32 mills in 2015.  The school district would have 21 years to repay.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
