It’s election day in Michigan for school districts and local governments in 50 of Michigan’s 83 counties.
There’s a big push to get the word out regarding next week’s primary election, and a millage on the ballot to save the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Detroit City Council has decided to set up special session, sometime in the next two weeks, to decide on whether to put a police millage proposal before voters this November.
A majority of City Council members appear to be ready to reject the Board of Police Commission’s request to put a 9-mill tax increase before the voters.
Voters in several communities are heading to the polls Tuesday. Many will be voting on millage increases, while others will be picking city council primary winners to square off in November.
While it’s not the best time to be addressing a tax hike or millage increase, the Clawson School Board may not have any other options.
