During the 2020 elections, Argyle Township voters will be asked to approve two millage issues.
One ballot issue will ask voters to renew 2 mills for four years for roads. The other issue will ask for a renewal of 1 mill for four years for the fire department.
Initially, the township had planned on placing the millage requests on the March ballot; but at the November meeting, the board decided to have the ballot issues placed on the Aug. 8, 2020 for the primary election instead.
One mill generates about $ 25,000 the first year before rollbacks, according to township Clerk Edward Pfaff.
And, being able to take advantage of sale saved the township $100 on purchasing a printer.
The township needed a new printer to print labels for mailing, but it couldn't be just any printer. Because it would be used in connection with voting matters, it had to be approved by the Bureau of Elections and had to be compatible with the election's software.
In other business, the board approved paying bills owed to the Sanilac County Road Commission for services provided.
The following payments to them were: $6,718 for the second application of road brine, $1,200 for the second road side mowing, and $1,471 for the township's share of road side brush spraying.
