Residents of three northeast Michigan counties will be voting on millage proposals during the upcoming August 6 election.

Alpena County voters are being asked to support a 0.25 mill levy for 20 years for public library renovations and operations.

Green Township is asking residents for a half-mill levy for 10 years for road repairs and maintenance; and 1.0 mill for ten years for emergency medical responder services and fire protection services.

Oscoda Township also has two proposals on the ballot. One is an increase of up to 0.9 mills for six years for operation and maintenance of the township fire department. The other is an increase of up to 1.75 mills for six years for road maintenance, repairs and improvements.

And residents in a portion of Presque Isle County are being asked to support a zoning ordinance amendment that basically would allow utility scale industrial wind turbines and solar energy facilities to be constructed within certain districts with a special use permit.

In addition, Metz Township residents are being asked to support a renewal of 1.0 mill for 5-years for road maintenance.
