Flint Public Safety Millage Projected to Pass

courtesy Flint Fire Department

A 5-year, 6-mill tax increase that would go towards police and fire services in Flint is projected to have passed.

According to MLive, with 90 percent of precincts reporting, just over 14,000 voters said “yes” to the millage while just under 10,000 said “no.”

The millage is expected to raise $5.3 million in the first year and would go towards stabilizing the police and fire departments which have been mostly relying on grants for funding. The grants are set to expire in the coming years and there is no guarantee they will be renewed. The money raised could add 10 positions this year and 10 more next year.

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling said this might be “the most important millage the city has passed.”
