SAUGATUCK, Mich. (WZZM) -- More than 300 petition signatures from Saugatuck and Douglas will be delivered to Lansing Tuesday to try to prevent an immediate merger between the two cities.
Members of the group "Citizens for Independent and Cooperative Communities" say they collected enough signatures to put the consolidation to a vote before Tuesday's deadline.
Last month, the state boundary commission approved the merger, which at least 5% of residents favor.
If the state approves the ballot measure, the vote could be held during an August or November election.
