Dorr, Martin townships turn down millages

May 2015 Election Results
Ryan Lewis, Editor

While early returns showed voters widely rejecting the statewide road funding ballot proposal, voters were somewhat more open at the local level.

The following results are unofficial. Canvassers certified the official election results after The Allegan County News went to press.

In Dorr Township, even a detailed plan for the funds appears to have been not enough to convince voters to approve a local road millage.

Another millage to save up to replace aging fire trucks fared little better—adding to two other similar proposals voters rejected, both in 2012.

Road millage (3 mills, six years)

yes  665  /  no 1,202

Fire equipment millage (0.5 mill, six years)

yes  757  /  no 1,076


Renewals of both school non-homestead operating millages passed by wide margins.

Fennville Public Schools: Renew operating millage (18 mills, one year)

yes  934  /  no 508

Hopkins Public Schools: Renew operating millage (18 mills, two years)

yes  1,036  /  no 793


Voters—by 25 ballots—turned down a Martin Township proposal to raise funds to replace aging fire trucks.

Fire equipment millage (0.9 mill, eight years)

yes  234  /  no 259


Voters in Salem Township, however, renewed that township’s road millage.

Renew road millage (5 mills, six years)

yes  459  /  no 372
