(DECKERVILLE) -- Voters in Deckerville will see a 2-mill, 5-year property tax renewal on the November 5 ballot for police protection in the village. The renewal is set to expire December 31. The millage will raise about $26,847 in the first year, based on 2013 figures.
Council members Monday night also approved the donation of $1,000 towards this year's Deckerville Homecoming Fireworks show. Another spectacular display is expected, as the fireworks show celebrates its 20th Anniversary in August. The Deckerville Homecoming Committee is seeking donations from residents and businesses in hopes of reaching their $10,000 goal. Checks made payable to the "Deckerville Homecoming Committee" with "Fireworks" in the memo line, may be sent to Marsha Pozsgay, 2065 Black River Street in Deckerville, 48427.
In other action, Trustee Phil Swoffer resigned from his position on the council after moving out of the village limits. Deckerville residents interested in filling the vacancy are asked to contact Audrey Stolicker at the village office. The term expires in November 2014.
