  1. Cheboygan Life Support is asking for 0.25 mill for operating. Ginop reported that at the last MTA meeting, the townships would want Cheboygan County to continue their allocation of supporting the ambulance service. The county wants to spread the millage on the townships and discontinue their share of the allocation. Ginop asked the board's approval to write a letter to the Cheboygan County Board of Commissioners and ask that they continue to support Cheboygan Life Support. If there needs to be more millage, than spread a less amount of millage on the townships. The townships should not have to pay the full amount, while the county pays nothing. The board approved to write the letter, each board member signing the letter.
