During the Nov. 8 general election, Huron Township residents will see a fire department millage renewal on the ballots.
This is a renewal of the existing operating millage.
Currently, the Huron Township Fire Department has funding for 30 fire personnel with three of those positions slated for full-time paramedics.
At least one paramedic is on duty within the township 24 hours a day and supplemented by part-time paramedics, part-time EMT’s, and/or part-time firefighters.
If the millage is passed by the voters, current fire coverages and staffing levels can be maintained.
“We are very fortunate to have a well-trained, dedicated, and professional group of men and women who never fail to be there when we need them the most. As a resident myself, I know that the biggest show of support I can give them is the ability to continue serving our community by supporting this millage renewal,” said Everette Robbins, Huron Township director of public safety. “I would encourage anyone with questions or concerns to contact me directly. Residents can stop in to talk at the police department, call me at 734-753-4400, or email me at email@example.com”
Here’s the ballot language:
FIRE MILLAGE RENEWAL
