May 7th Election
Electors will consider three Casco Township Ballot proposals.

1.  Ambulance Service Millage Renewal- This is a 1 mill request to renew and restore the existing .9208 mill, rolled back by Headlee, Ambulance millage.  This revenue is used to pay the Township’s financial obligations to SHAES.  All the participating municipalities pay an equitable contribution into SHAES based on population.  This revenue has been used to operate the Ambulance service since 1995.

2.  Senior Service Millage Proposition – This is a .25 mill request to provide funds for senior services specifically to pay Senior Services of VanBuren County, Inc.  This will allow Casco seniors to use all the facilities in VanBuren County Including the South Haven Senior Center.  Local programing and all Allegan County services will continue as they currently exist. 

3.  Police Protection Millage Renewal Proposition - This is a .65 mill to renew and restore the existing .6329 mill, rolled back by Headlee, Police millage.  This revenue is used to fund the contract with Allegan County Sheriff’s Department to provide Casco with a dedicated 40 hour per week deputy and vehicle.
