Springfield police mill

May 23, 2012

Springfield Township residents will vote on a 0.75 mill property tax for police services in the Aug. 7 primary election.

"That's the funding we need in order to maintain the current level of service," said township Supervisor Collin Walls.

The board considered 0.6 to 0.95 at its May 10 meeting. The 0.75-mill decision was unanimous.

The township contracts with Oakland County Sheriff's Office for police protection. The millage would run from 2012 until 2015, when it would be combined with a 0.7289 police millage for a single renewal vote. Another 1.5 mill for police services, approved in 2006, expires in 2017.
