GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Voters in Grand Rapids overwhelmingly approved a millage aimed at improving the city’s parks.

The millage passed with a 60 percent majority of the more than 15,000 votes.

The seven-year request will provide $4 million annually to repair and enhance parks as well as provide funding for three city swimming pools each summer.
