(CENTREVILLE) – Voters in St. Joseph County will see two millage proposals from the County Road Commission on Tuesday's ballot.

The first is a renewal of the one mill road millage which the Road Commission uses for work on roads around the County. This will be a ten year renewal and would produce revenue of $1.9 million during the first calendar year.

The second request, according to Road Commission Manager Christopher Bolt, is for two mills for a ten year period.

Bolt says a certain amount is needed each year for the Road Commission to just do their regular tasks. ...... {LISTEN}.

Bolt says the Road Commission has looked at every option possible for more funding to upgrade roads and bridges, and the only one left was for a millage proposal.

Bolt explains if the millage passes, the Road Commission would keep a portion of the funds. ...... {LISTEN}.

The other mill would be given back to the townships and they would decide where the monies would be used.

If approved, the proposal would generate approximately $3.8 million in the first year.

Bolt says this is an aggressive request, but it's needed to get the County's roads up to standards.
