The Detroit Institute of Arts is asking voters for a little help: A millage that would support the DIA for another decade.
Voters in the tri-county area will have a chance to turn thumbs up (or down) on a millage that would bring in a total of $23 million annually from Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
The DIA gets no public money from anybody — city, state or federal authorities. The new millage would cost the owner of a $150,00 home about $15 a year.
Detroit Free Press editorial page editor Stephen Henderson tells us about the campaign, and interviews two supporters.
