Voters overwhelmingly approved the renewal of Edwardsburg Public School’s 18 mill operating millage Tuesday.
The millage, which passed 926-516, is an annual renewal and does not increase taxes on homestead or agricultural properties with exemption.
Passage provides financial support to continue current programs.
