TUSCOLA COUNTY — Voters in two townships agreed during Tuesday’s general election to pay a little more taxes for services.
Columbia Township
Voters in Columbia Township approved a new tax of up to 1 mill for six years to support their library.
The results were 52 “yes” votes to 24 “no” votes, said Tuscola County Clerk Margie White.
The new levy will generate about $45,000 the first year, and cost a homeowner with an $80,000 house about $40 more per year in taxes.
