Registration deadline nears for Aug. 6 vote
By Melissa Burnor
Michigan residents have until July 8 to register in order to vote in¬
the Aug. 6 election. Nearly all residents in Blissfield, Riga, Ogden,¬
Palmyra townships as well as those living in the the villages of¬
Deerfield and Blissfield will have at least one issue on the ballot.
Residents of the Blissfield School District will be voting on a new¬
1.25 mill sinking fund millage for a period of 10 years, 2013-2022.
Lenawee County is also developing a district library system and will¬
ask voters not already considered part of a library system for a 10-
year 6-mill levy. This millage will be on the ballot in Palmyra,¬
Ogden and Deerfield townships and Deerfield Village. According to¬
ballot language it would raise $968,400 in the first year to run the¬
library. Currently the library is funded by the county general fund.¬
The Schultz-Holmes Memorial Library has contractual agreements with¬
townships for areas that are in the Blissfield School District.
