Voters in Macomb County will be asked in August whether to support a property tax hike that would benefit thousands of local veterans, many of whom are homeless or in need of health care.
The county is asking for a 0.04-mill renewal and a 0.029-mill increase of the Macomb County veterans millage which has levied funding for veterans since 2008, county officials say.
The county Board of Commissioners approved the veterans millage proposal for the August primary election ballot after conducting a study on how veterans could receive benefits faster through the Veterans Services Department, board chairman David Flynn said.
