Officials in Pipestone Township ask residents to renew levy
PIPESTONE TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Voters in Pipestone Township are being asked to renew a levy that could impact drivers.
If passed, the renewal would continue to repair and replace township roads.
Voters first approved a $60 per parcel levy in 2015. This year’s proposal is asking voters to tax that same amount just through 2022.
It will raise around $80,000 in the first year. Four miles per year over the next four years will be worked on, equaling out to 16 miles of road.
Officials say if this doesn’t pass, it could be a rocky road ahead.
"We have done everything we said we were going to do when we first asked for the levy," said Pipestone Township supervisor Doug Davis. "If we didn't have the levy, we would have more gravel roads in the township. We appreciate our residents support."
Davis said the township does not know what roads will be worked on at this time.
