In Adrian, Michigan, the Lenawee County EDC proposed a property tax to fund economic development after declining support from businesses and local governments.
The ballot measure was soundly defeated after voters said no in Tuesday’s election to the tax. The vote was nearly 63 percent against the 0.28 mill property tax that appeared on the ballot as Proposal 1. The final tally for Proposal 1 was 6,957 against and 4,125 in favor. More here.
