Manchester Township Ballot Measure Wins Voter Approval

Aug 7, 2018

Manchester Township Hall

An expiring fire protection services measure in Manchester Township will be extended through 2023.  Just under 63-percent of voters were in favor of restoring a previously approved .65 mill tax.

Because of the Headlee Tax Amendment to the state constitution, the tax levy had been rolled back to just over .64-mills. With Tuesday’s voter affirmation, the levy will be restored to the original .65 mills.
