Crisis in Saugatuck

In February, the board of trustees of Saugatuck Township, Mich. [just down the road a piece from me], scheduled a May referendum asking voters for an increase in the property tax in order to cover unanticipated new expenses. The budget overrun was due to the mounting costs of defending lawsuits by people and companies complaining that the township’s property taxes are too high.
