FLINT TWP. – Voting machines are ready to go for the Tuesday. May 2 Special Election, when all Genesee County voters are being asked to approve a funding increase for the Genesee County 911 emergency system. If approved, the line item surcharge on telephone bills will increase to $1.86 per month – a 62-cents increase through December 31, 2021. The surcharge applies to landline, wireless and Internet protocols and would be used exclusively for emergency call answering and dispatch services including facilities, equipment, maintenance and operating costs. There are no other proposals or issues on the May ballot for Flint Township voters so a precinct consolidation is being done to cut costs. However, voters should go to their usual polling location.
