Two Watervliet Township Fire Levy Renewal measures were on the May 3, 2011 ballot in the township of Watervliet which is in Berrien County.

Both measures were approved

  • YES 116 Approveda
  • NO 25[1]

Though two questions were on the ballot, both were the same. They sought to renew the current fire levy which is set at a rate of $1 per $1,000 of assessed property value for a further four years in order to continue to pay for fire protection services offered in the township.[2]
