PM Township considering transportation millage renewal.


By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — Pere Marquette Township’s board of trustees will consider a resolution asking its voters to renew a transportation millage when it meets Tuesday, April 10.

The board will consider the renewal of up to .4 mill for service to the township residents from Ludington Mass Transit Authority for four years. The estimated revenue would generate approximately $234,000.

LMTA operates in the cities of Ludington and Scottville and Pere Marquette Township. Property owners in Ludington and Scottville pay a millage rate of 1.25 directly to LMTA. Pere Marquette Township levies its own millage and then pays LMTA. The township paid LMTA $140,000 in 2017, according to recent reports from the LMTA board.

If approved, the bond renewal would be placed on the ballot during the Primary Election, scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 7.

The board meets at 6:30 p.m. at the township hall, 1699 S. Pere Marquette Highway.
