Algonac voters pass fire special assessment district proposal, narrowly reject marijuana proposal – The VoicePosted by On

Algonac voters on Tuesday passed a fire special assessment district proposal and narrowly did not pass a voter-initiated marijuana ordinance amendment proposal.

The fire special assessment district proposal asked if the city should establish a special assessment district supporting fire department services. If approved, the city council will annually determine a levy amount between zero and 5 mills to defray the costs to continue medical first response services and fire protection at levels needed to adequately protect and serve the residents of Algonac, with 1 mill assessed in year one.

According to unofficial results from the St. Clair County Clerk’s Office, 630 people, or about 62%, voted for the proposal, and 390 people, or about 38%, voted against it.

The voter-initiated marijuana ordinance proposal asked if a proposed initiated ordinance amendment in the city of Algonac to repeal the city’s ordinance “Division 5-Marihuana, Sec. 26-295-Prohibition of marihuana establishments” and to add a section to allow one marijuana dispensary, licensed with the state of Michigan as a provisioning center offering both medical and adult-use marijuana to be located in a commercially zoned district within the boundaries of the city of Algonac, should be approved.

The unofficial results state that 517 people, or about 51%, voted against the proposal, and 503 people, or about 49%, voted for it.
