Two Muskegon Township Levy Replacement measures were on the August 3, 2010 ballot in the township of Muskegon which is in Muskegon County.

Both measures were approved

The first measure sought to replace the current public safety services levy with a $2.00 per $1,000 of assessed property for a further five years.[1] For some residents this means property taxes will be lower, and others will get an increase depending if they currently pay 2 or 3 mill taxes. The tax would cover about one-third of the cost for running the fire and police departments in the township.[2]

  • YES 1,531 Approveda
  • NO 962

The second measure sought to replace the current lighting service district levy with a $.70 per $1,000 of assessed property for a further five years.[3] Township officials hope that the increase levy will be able to pay for the increased cost of street lights in the township. Replacing lights with more energy efficient ones is also a plan for the tax money.[2]

  • YES 1,354 Approveda
  • NO 1,138[4]
