Sylvan Township millage election: Hearing ordered to show cause for not doing recount
Editor's note: The date of the hearing has been corrected in this article.
Another resident has requested a hearing to “show cause” for denying the recount, the news website reported. Judge Archie Brown granted the show-cause request but denied requests for a preliminary junction and temporary restraining order, according to the report. The hearing was set for 9 a.m. Oct. 3.
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.
