Elections in West Michigan Tuesday

UNDATED (WOOD) — Elections are occurring in eight West Michigan counties Tuesday, and seven of the races are school millage requests.

One of the largest requests is a $9.3 million millage request in the Mendon Community Schools district in St. Joseph County. If approved, the money would be used to remodel the elementary school and the building that houses the middle school and high school. The district would also receive new technology and new busses.
