County road millages get voter backing

roadsFour of five county road millage questions gained approval from the voters Tuesday night. Eaton County’s millage proposal to levy 1.5 mills for local roads appears to have passed, the Lansing State Journal reports. Meanwhile, voters in Midland, Otsego and Ottawa counties easily approved plans to raise millions for local roads. However, Lapeer County voters rejected a roads millage. MAC congratulates these counties on their road efforts, while still noting that a permanent solution to Michigan’s transportation crisis must come from the State Capitol. Speaking after his re-election victory, Gov. Rick Snyder told the media that a transportation funding measure would be a top priority for him in the post-election legislative session. MAC supports a 1 percent sales tax increase dedicated to roads as the best method to raise the funds needed to handle the crisis.
