The Detroit News: SMART: Oakland, Wayne, Macomb back transit taxes

Oakland County voters approved a proposal aimed at connecting the county’s SMART transportation system and ending the ability of local communities to opt out of it. The 0.95-mill, 10-year property tax proposal won a 57.2% yes vote with just under 97% of precincts reporting.

Supporters of the millage proposal described the effort to unite the county’s Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation system as essential to provide residents with access to jobs, health care and education.
