The 0.5 mills would have raised over $7 million annually for four years. It would have cost homeowners about $35 a year.
Roy Townsend, managing director for the Washtenaw County Road Commission, says drivers can expect to see more potholes, possible culvert closures, and delays on construction projects in general. The delays could include Textile Road in Pittsfield Township and sections of Willis, Parker, and Saline-Milan Roads.
Some of the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners voted down the millage because they believe issues such as mental health need more attention right now.
