Residents in the Ann Arbor Public School district are being asked to vote on a new operating millage Tuesday, May 8th.


Voters in Ypsilanti Township will be among those hitting the ballot boxes next Tuesday, May 8th.  As WEMU's Taylor Pinson reports, the township is asking voters to approve a new millage on to help pay for the community's fire department.


May 8th is Election Day in Washtenaw County.  The Ann Arbor Public Schools are seeking renewal of a general operating millage.  Ypsilanti Township is asking for tax support for fire department operations  and has a special election for a Parks Commission position.  As WEMU's Taylor Pinson reports, in Sharon Township, the issue is access to broadband internet service.
