DELHI TWP, Mich. (WILX) -- The people of Delhi Township passed millages to improve their infrastructure for emergency personnel.

“We are grateful residents chose to support all four of the important millages on the Nov. 6 ballot,” said John Hayhoe, Delhi Township supervisor. “As Ingham County’s fastest growing community, we have experienced an increase in residents, businesses and investment in recent years, making it a challenge to maintain the level of services we provide. These millages will provide the funds we need to maintain the quality of services we provide our residents.”

They passed 4 millages that include renewing funding for police and fire services, repairing and replacing old emergency medical equipment, as well as restoring local parks and trails systems.

The vote to renew funding for law enforcement services and fire protection and emergency medical services is for 8 years at a rate of 1.5 mills each.

“Delhi Township’s continued growth has strained and stretched the fire services we are able to provide township residents,” said Brian Ball, Delhi Township fire chief. “Successfully renewing funding for fire services and providing funding to repair emergency medical equipment will allow us to maintain the quality of fire and emergency medical services we provide and upgrade our equipment and vehicle fleet.”
