UNDATED (WHTC) - While most of the attention is focused on the showdown between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in the state’s Republican presidential primary today, voters in some Lakeshore communities will be asked to decide some proposals on their ballots.
In OliveTownship, there’s a one-mill renewal of a levy for fire and emergency services. Communities that send students to Zeeland Public Schools, along with those in Middleville’s Delton-Kellogg district that spills over into a portion of eastern Allegan County, will consider renewing the annual 18-mill non-homestead tax that normally is put before voters in May. Finally, a contentious proposal in South Haven is asking voters to affirm a zoning change that would allow the construction of a Meijer store on the city’s northern edge.
Polls are open from 7 AM to 8 PM. Voters in Holland, Holland Township and Zeeland can ride MAX Transit’s eight fixed bus routes for free today in order to get to the polls.
