Baraga County voters will have more than just the statewide Proposal 15-1 to decide when heading to the polls Tuesday, May 5, 2015. The ballot will also contain a county-wide library millage proposal. Covington Township constituents will also decide on the renewal of both a fire and ambulance question as well as the renewal of a recreation proposition (see separate story). Backers of the Baraga County Public Library are asking the electorate to support a half-mill, five-year proposal–2015-2019 inclusive, with funds specifically earmarked for general operation and maintenance of the existing public library. The generated revenue is estimated at approximately $121,400 for the first year. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers..
