August 05, 2009 MUSSEY TWP. — Just over 230 voters showed up for Tuesday's fire department millage renewal vote at St. John's Lutheran Church but that was enough to secure another five years of funding.
According to the township, the final vote tally was 177 yes votes to 57 no votes.
The half mill proposal will bring about $60,000 a year to the department for equipment purchases and upgrades.
This was the first renewal attempt.
The Mussey Township Fire Department has a 33 member force and responds to about 120 calls per year.
