Two meetings held for police millage

      Washington Township residents will have two chances to gather information on a ballot initiative to increase policing.
       Supervisor Dan O'Leary and Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham are holding information meetings regarding a proposal to increase the township's police millage from 1 mill to 2 mills.
       The meetings will take place 7 p.m. at the Township Municipal Building on Sept. 9 and Oct. 16. The public is encouraged to attend.
       The township has .23 officers per 1,000 residents. If approved, the millage would double the coverage provided by the sheriff's office.
       If the increase was approved, a home with a $150,000 taxable value would pay an additional $150 a year if all two mills were levied.
       Washington's current millage collects just over $1 million to fund a contract with the sheriff's office for 7.2 full-time equivalent deputies, or one deputy per 24-hour shift a day.
