(WZZM/MIKE FABER) -- On August 5th, Kent County Residents are asked to vote on whether or not to expand services to seniors.
The current millage serves 17,000 Kent County residents 60 and older per year with 43 different services, including home delivered meals, personal care, transportation, and home repair.
Mike Faber of the Older Learner Center at Grand Rapids Community College joined the WZZM13 News at Noon to explain what the vote on the Kent County Senior Millage entails.
Faber says the senior millage would cost the average resident only pennies a day. Increasing the millage rate from $1/3 to $1/2 million will only cost the owner of a $150,000 home an extra $12.50 per year.
