Watersmeet Township voters approve operating millage renewal

WATERSMEET — Voters in Watersmeet Township approved an operating millage renewal on Tuesday.

By a vote of 195 to 46 (81% yes to 19% no), the voters approved a four-year renewal of 3.5 mils.

According to the ballot language, 3.5 mills ($3.50 per $1,000 of taxable value) is to be levied for four years, 2023 through 2026 inclusive, for “general township operating purposes, raising an estimated $703,826 in the first year the millage is levied.”

Watersmeet Township Clerk Julie Mathiesen said last week that if the renewal were to fail, they would have to “sharply curtail some of our services.”
