PLYMOUTH TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Officials in Plymouth Township are expected to vote tonight to lay off six of its 21 firefighters.
The move comes two days after 84 percent of voters rejected a special assessment proposal that would have levied up to 10 mills to fund the Plymouth Township Fire Department.
