Local election wrap-up

(WLNS) – In addition to the Democrat and Republican Presidential primaries there were a few local issues for voters to decide.

In Ingham County voters in the Waverly school district approved a millage and tax levy but it was a close one.

Just over half of the voters in district voted in favor of the millage. The final vote tally was 3175 for and 2584 against.

It’s expected to bring in close to $800,000 annually.

Voters in the Holt school district approved a ballot renewal by a 5883 – 2504 margin. That’s about 70 percent of the vote.

It’s expected to bring in over $4 million dollars a year.

In Shiawassee County voters there approved a proposal for 9-1-1 funding by a final tally of 9941 to 6904. Over a 5-year period county officials will charge residents just over $2.60 for every landline, cell phone and Voice Over Internet connection.

The money will be used to fund maintenance, repairs and operation costs in the “dispatch center”.

In Jackson County voters in Rives Township rejected a new version of the township zoning ordinance.

The new ordinance fell short at the polls by a 800-353 vote, 69 percent of voters saying “no”.

In Eaton County voters in Charlotte passed a millage to fund repairs at local playgrounds and recreational sites. That passed by a 2585-2035 margin.

Hillsdale County voters approved two out of four bonds in the Pittsford school district.

The two approved include remodeling and building proposals.

The roof and development bond proposals went down to defeat.
