LAURIUM - Ed Vertin is hoping voters Tuesday will not only notice a millage renewal proposal on the ballot Tuesday, but will vote for it.
"My fear is that it's the last thing on the ballot," said Vertin, Laurium village manager. "I worry that people won't vote for what they don't notice."
The millage is a renewal for fire apparatus purchase only, Vertin said. That could be a fire truck or a major equipment purchase, but has to be used for fire apparatus only.
Vertin stressed the millage is a renewal, not a new millage. No additional dollars per year will be passed on to the taxpayers, he said.
"All millages are important, but this gives us maximum flexibility, and it's highly visible," Vertin said. "People will see their tax dollars at work."
