Fire millages pass

Voters in two rural Isabella County townships easily approved fire-protection millages Tuesday.
In Deerfield Township, a one-mill levy for six years passed 145-96, a 60 percent yes vote.

In Gilmore Township, a one-mill levy, also for six years, passed 81-35, a 70 percent margin of approval.

The Deefield proposal would raise about $95,000 for the Deerfield Township Fire Department the first year. The Gilmore proposal would raise about $40,000 the first year.

Northern Gilmore township's fire protection is provided under contract with the Surrey Township Fire Department. The southern part of the township is protected under contract with the Nottawa-Sherman Townships Fire Department.
