Two cities are better than one. At least, that’s what voters in both Saugatuck and Douglas decided in Tuesday’s election.
Just an hour after the polls closed, former Douglas Mayor Matt Balmer held his phone out so the crowd could hear the results. 226 yes. 385 no.
Cheers from this group which opposed the effort, a group made up of people from both towns. They shared several bottles of champagne after the results were announced.
Saugatuck Mayor Bill Hess says the results are pretty easy to interpret.
