In the July 25 edition of the Sun Time News the article titled “August 7 Elections” contained an error of fact regarding the Manchester Township Fire Operating Millage. The proposal is for a DEDICATED fire operating millage. The Sun Times report indicated some of the money raised can be disbursed to other budget item which is incorrect. What the ballot language actually says is “A portion may be disbursed to such other or fewer local units of government as the township board determines appropriate” which refers to fire contracts / mutual aid.
We sincerely regret the error and confusion that it caused.
