LANSING, MI (WHTC) - A group opposed to merging Saugatuck and Douglas into a single governmental entity plan to submit petitions to the State Boundary Commission offices in Lansing today. It’s the deadline for requesting a voter referendum on the Commission’s ruling that the two cities be consolidated, and officials of Citizens for Independent and Cooperative Communities say that they have nearly four times the amount of 90 valid signatures needed to put the issue on either the August or November ballots. Although not directly participating in the petition effort, the pro-merger Consolidated Government Committee is also supporting the ballot initiative. The SBC will make a decision on the petitions next month.
