Voters in Bronson had three proposals to decide as well. The biggest one was from the Bronson School District, which was asking for 2 mills for five years to create a building and site sinking fund millage.

It passed with 614 Yes votes to 554 No votes.

The City of Bronson had two proposals for their residents, both dealing with property. Proposal 1 would allow the City to sell 20 acres of farm land east of Ryan School that had been designated for cemetery expansion, but was no longer needed.

It passed with 201 Yes votes to 54 No votes. Money from the sale will be placed in the Cemetery Redevelopment Fund.

Proposal 2 would give the City permission to sell 100 acres of land designated for City expansion. The land was known as the Schmid Farms on Parham Road.

The proposal passed 215 Yes to 39 No. The money from the sale will be placed in the local street fund.
