      Local library seeks millage renewal

      The West Iron District Library is asking area communities for support in a millage renewal to keep up their operations.

      The renewal is a 1.5 mill levy, which is no additional increase from the current millage. Those at the library say the millage helps with all the facility operations, community programs, and library materials. The voting can be done throughout the six area municipalities.

      â??The six municipalities are Iron River, Caspian, and Gaastra, as well as Iron River, Bates, and Stambaugh townships,â?? said Assistant Director, Stephanie Swenski. â??We currently have 63 percent of our service area, which is over 7,300 people that have active library cards.â??

      The local election takes place on Februrary 25.
