At a special election on June 25th, 41% of Millis residents turned out to vote. By just six votes out of 2,269, they approved a $10 million override to cover the cost of building a new police station ($7,058,110) and renovating the existing police and fire station to accommodate a growing fire department ($2,902,978). The debt exclusion override will be paid over 20 years, costing the average homeowner in Millis (with a home valued at $339,000) to see a tax increase of $253 the first year, reducing annually to $175 in the 20th year.
