Oct 29, 2015

In less than a week, Scio Township voters will decide if they will approve a millage that would expand public bus service in that area.

The proposal calls to extend bus service along Jackson Road from the intersection of Wagner Road to Zeeb Road in 2016 and to Baker Road in 2017.

Martha Valadez, who is a transit organizer for the Ecology Center in Washtenaw County and who is promoting the millage, says adults wouldn't be the only ones who would benefit from the project.  Students who attend school in Ann Arbor would be able to use the service everyday.

If the millage passes it will cost homeowners about $45 for every $250,000 worth of taxable property.

This will be the only issue on the ballot in Scio Township.
