Voters approve Funding proposal for North Berrien Historical Society
COLOMA, Mich – The fate of the North Berrien Historical Society rested with Michigan voters, and they chose to renew a millage proposal that will keep the museum open.
The museum relies on a millage to help fund the day-to-day operation.
The millage breaks down to $25 annually for every one hundred thousand dollars in value for a house.
The ballet has gone out to people in Watervilet, Coloma, Haggard Township, and Bainbridge Township.
Jack Greve, Director of the museum, says the renewed millage will keep history in Berrien County.
“The best thing possible is to keep all of these materials and artifacts still around to make sure the next generation is able to see them” Greve said.
The millage originally passed in 2006, and with being renewed on Tuesday is its third renewal.
