Eaton County voters approve parks millage
Eaton County residents have voted in favor of a parks millage, according to unofficial results. The county will receive funds to improve amenities in local parks through the voter approved tax millage increase.
The measure is set at 50 mills, or $.50 cents for every one thousand dollars of assessed property value. That’s about 30 dollars per household in Eaton County.
The county parks department plans to use the money for playground pavilion improvements, maintenance projects and updates to Crandell Park.
The millage is expected to yield more than $2 million dollars of annual revenue over the next ten years according to the Eaton County Taxable Valuations.
