HOLT — Voters rejected a bond proposal that would have supported a waste-to-energy sludge dryer.
The proposal was defeated 2,523-1,769, according to totals posted on the township’s website.
The measure was rejected in all but two of the township’s precincts and by absentee voters.
The proposal was worded: “Shall the Charter Township of Delhi, Ingham County, Michigan, borrow the sum of not to exceed Five Million One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($5,100,000) and issue its limited tax revenue
bonds therefor, for the purpose of:
“Acquiring, constructing and installing improvements to the Township’s sanitary sewer system to dewater and dry the Township’s sludge to reduce transportation and disposal costs, as well as
all other necessary and related improvements?”
Precinct totals are available on the township’s site. Holt Journal tories that led up to the vote may be found by clicking on the “sludge dryer” category link below.
