In Fruitport Township, voters overwhelming approved two millages, one to fund the Police Department, the other for Public Safety. Both are for five years.

In Holton Township, after the tragic death of Fire Chief Bryan Hawk two weeks ago, a reason to celebrate--as voters said ‘yes’ to a ten-year millage renewal that fire officials say is critical to the department’s operations.

And in Eglestonownship, marijuana supporters are disappointed-- as a proposal that would have allowed two cannabis dispensaries and two growing facilities failed in a close race, with around 55 percent of residents voting no.
