Judge rules Sylvan Township millage recount can move forward
A judge ruled Wednesday that the Sylvan Township water and sewer debt millage recount will happen, the Chelsea Standard reported.
Circuit Court Judge Archie Brown ruled Wednesday that the recount would move forward within 21 days. The Washtenaw County director of elections told the Standard he was confident the recount could be completed next week.
The tax would raise funds over a 20-year period to pay the county back about $13 million Sylvan Township owes in back taxes and for payments absorbed by the county after the township defaulted on a loan for a water and sewer development project.
