Ingham County May Ask Voters For New Shelter
This August, voters in Ingham County may be asked to approve a millage to build a new animal control shelter. According to the Lansing State Journal, a committee of county commissioners wants to ask Ingham taxpayers to vote for a millage proposal that would fund a nearly $7 million facility with a 10 year tax increase. If approved, money from the millage would not only build a new 21,000 square foot shelter, but would also extend service days from 5 to 6 a week, add 11 staffers, and restore after hours on-call service that ceased in 2006.
The proposal still needs to go before the entire Board of Commissioners. If given the green light, the millage would go before voters on August 2. See the full article from lsj.com for full details and to also see what special millages Ingham County residents already fund.
