Flint Voters Split On Major Public Safety Millages 5-04-2011

Voters in Flint defeated the jail millage that would have provided more space to put inmates, but said yes to keeping police on the job.
The three-year jail proposal failed, with about 55 percent of the voters opposed to the tax increase. The proposal would have raised about $2 million in the first year, including additional jobs.
About 65 percent of voters supported renewal of the city’s 2-mill police services tax. The money will be used to keep about 15 officers on the job.
