Bridgewater and Lodi Townships will each see one township proposal in next Tuesday’s general election.
Bridgewater Township will ask voters to approve a four-year, 0.5 mill to maintain the township’s contracted fire services from Manchester and Clinton. Township Clerk Tom Wharam says the funds are needed because the township had to replace an unexpected runoff water drain that cost $750,000. Wharam says the township’s road budget will be affected if the millage is not approved.
Township Clerk Tom Wharam: So, we would lose road maintenance and we would also lose a county-wide match from Washtenaw County Road Commission to help us maintain those roads.
Meanwhile in Lodi Township, voters will see a five-year, 1-mill proposal to raise funds for road maintenance and improvements.
