A 9-1-1 millage is being requested by the Mason-Oceana 9-1-1 Board.
The Mason County Board of Commissioners are being asked to place the proposal on the August fifth ballot. If passed, county residents will vote whether or not to increase taxable property rate by .14 mil. This hike will be for six years, between 2014 and 2019 and be used to finance equipment and facility and operating costs. Almost $235,000 would be raised per year. The board will vote on it on Tuesday.
