A March, 2020 vote is planned for a proposed six year renewal of Saginaw County’s Parks and Recreation millage.

The issue passed the Board of Comissioners’ County Services Committee Wednesday, September 4 with the full board expected to act on it later this month.

Parks and Recreation Director Brian Keenan-Lechel says a gate fee waiver for county residents, initiated five years ago, led to a near tripling in park attendance. He says plans for enhanced recreational opportunities include a proposed splash pad and playground at the Haithco Recreation Area.
