The Voice: Chesterfield Township Board approves community transit contract

Community transit services will continue for now in Chesterfield Township, but a looming millage proposal could mean a “grim reality going forward,” Richmond Lenox EMS Chief Jeff White recently said.

The Chesterfield Township Board of Trustees on Sept. 27 unanimously approved a new yearly contract with Richmond Lenox EMS and SMART for transportation services, allocating roughly $105,000 in SMART municipal and community credits to the program. The funding is a portion of the $1.8 million collected by the township for SMART through the Macomb County public transportation millage and can only be used for public transportation.
