New Library Building Update:  Election day is August 7.
LIBRARY MILLAGE PROPOSAL                                  

Shall the tax limitation on all taxable property within Richland Township, Saginaw County, Michigan, be increased and the Township be authorized to levy a new additional millage in an amount not to exceed 1.0 mill ($1.00 on each $1,000 of taxable value) for ten (10) years, 2018 to 2027 inclusive, to provide funds for all library purposes authorized by law, including operating and constructing a library building for the Rauchholz Memorial Library? If the millage is approved, the estimate of the revenue the Township will collect in 2018, the first year of the levy, is approximately $150,000. By law, the funds from the millage will be disbursed to the Rauchholz Memorial Library.
We would like to thank the supporters of our summer reading program. Without their support, we wouldn't have the amazing program we have! A big thank you to:
McDonald's of Hemlock
and a private donor
