It can happen, even in Livingston County.
The all-Republican board of Hamburg Township is backing a tax increase.
An increase in the millage to support the Hamburg police department to 1.5 mills from 1 mill is on the ballot for the election on Tuesday, Nov. 3. The tax hike is expected to cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $50 a year.
Police services are vital, but so are other services, like schools. Too bad more Republicans can't bring themselves to step up to protect vital services.
