County OKs Indigent Vets Millage

At its Sept. 15, 2010 meeting, the Washtenaw County board of commissioners held a public hearing and gave final approval to levy 1/40 mill for indigent veterans’ relief. The millage does not require voter approval and would raise an estimated $362,415 for services to local veterans. It was first passed two years ago, and cost homeowners $2.50 for every $100,000 of a home’s taxable value.
