Two Ensley Township Library Levy Questions will be on the May 3, 2011 ballot in the township of Ensley, which is in Newaygo County.

The first question asks residents if they want to be included in the Grant Area District Library and pay a portion of the bond which the library received in 2006 which would amount to $.58 per $1,000 of assessed property value in the township.

The second question is dependent on the first and asks if residents want to implement a levy of $.86 per $1,000 of assessed property value in order to pay for library general operational funds.[1]
