Voters in Alpena will have five countywide millages to consider when they head to the polls in August, and residents in two townships are being asked to support a sixth proposal.

Tuesday was the filing deadline for proposals to appear on the ballot.

Alpena County is asking voters to support a renewal of the Youth and Recreation millage of one half mill for four years.

A renewal for older persons of .5394 mills for four years will be accompanied by a second restoration millage for .0106 mills for four years.  Combined, the two proposals equate to .55 mills for four years, the same as voters approved in 2014.

And the county is asking for a larger veteran’s millage of .21 mills over four years, an increase of .085 mills over the 2014 levy.  The extra money would be used to maintain two full-time positions at the veteran’s office.

Alpena Community College is asking county voters to approve a renewal of 1.0385 mills for 10 years to be used for all college purchases or expenses authorized by law.

Alpena Township voters will also be asked to support a larger millage for fire department operations and expenditures of 1.5 mills for 10 years, an increase of one half mill.

And Long Rapids Township residents are being asked to vote for a 2 mill, 10 year levy for the purpose of maintaining secondary roads in the township.
