UPDATE: Farmington, Hills voters approve millage requests

UPDATE: Farmington and Farmington Hills voters on Tuesday approved city millage requests by fairly wide margins.

More than 60 percent of Farmington voters said yes to a 3-mill levy that is expected to stabilize city finances and provide funding for street, sidewalk, water/sewer, park, and other capital improvement projects.

The measure easily passed in each of the city’s six precincts.

In Farmington Hills, 58.7 percent of voters carried forward a 2.75-mill levy request. The ballot measure also means a shift from a controversial special assessment program for road repairs to a city-wide program that eliminates the current 20 percent cap on contributions to subdivision projects.

The measure failed in precincts 4 and 7, and won by wide margins in precincts 3, 9, 10, 16, and 21.
