Clare County voters will be asked in the November general election to pass a scaled-down millage proposal to pay for justice/law enforcement.

County commissioners on Monday approved language for the proposal, which will ask voters to approve a five-year, .2169 millage to pay for costs associated with a new circuit court judgeship and for public safety.

If approved, the millage, which would raise about $175,000 the first year it is levied, would cost the owner of an $80,000 home about $8 the first year.

The proposal comes after the failure in the August primary of two millage proposals to support justice, and parks, recreation and farmland preservation.
