JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) — There’s a lot to bark and meow about in Jackson County as the animal control millage is approved by voters.
The animal control millage proposal passed with 62 percent of the vote.
Jackson County has been without animal control officers since 2014, leaving local law enforcement officers to pick up animal control duties.
The county intends to use the millage to bring back three animal control officers.
Additional funds will also go to the county animal shelter, which has heavily relied on volunteers and donations in recent years.
The $11 million millage means a taxpayer with a home worth $100,000 will pay an extra $12 a year in taxes.
