KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- There will not be a millage request for Kalamazoo County’s Homeless on the November ballot.
The Kalamazoo County Board met last night to hear more about plans to expand their homeless reduction and prevention programs but still hasn’t decided yet to green light them.
Agency officials, volunteers and the homeless they work with asked board to put the 1/3rd of a mill request on the ballot, some pleaded with them because a wave of social services cuts could soon put hundreds more families out on the streets.
Some commissioners are ready to put it on the ballot, some would never do it and the swing votes want assurances it will be money well spent, and that will take time. They will get time.
Any decision they make will come too late to put it on the November ballot this year. That deadline will pass today.
