Museum millage coasting toward easy passage

Voters in the cities of Grand Haven and Ferrysburg and Grand Haven Township said “yes” to a six-year, 0.25-mill renewal for the Tri-Cities Historical Museum.

“It means a lot to us,” said Julie Bunke, the museum's executive director. “It's a big deal to us.”

The millage money accounts for about 60 percent of the museum's total funding and is used for programs, public outreach for adults and children, school programs, exhibit upgrades and maintenance.

With all of Ferrysburg and Grand Haven Township precincts reporting and partial precincts in Grand Haven, the proposal is passing at about a 75 to 25 percent clip.
