89.1 WEMU

ballot proposal

May 8th is Election Day in Washtenaw County.  The Ann Arbor Public Schools are seeking renewal of a general operating millage.  Ypsilanti Township is asking for tax support for fire department operations  and has a special election for a Parks Commission position.  As WEMU's Taylor Pinson reports, in Sharon Township, the issue is access to broadband internet service.
