Officials with the Van Buren County Road Commission are urging voters to approve a millage renewal that will be on the ballot this August. They say the proposal is to renew the point-97 mills tax for four more years to continue funding road repairs all over the county. The millage has been in place since 1978, and was last renewed four years ago. The Road Commission says that, with declining revenues from gasoline taxes, it's essential to reapprove the millage, as funds for road maintenance continue to decline. A homeowner with a house that's worth 90 thousand dollars would pay about 88 dollars in property taxes to continue supporting the millage. It'll be on the August seventh primary ballot.
