Voters in the Village of Holly have turned down a charter amendment proposal to give raises to village leadership.

It was shot down with 56% of voters against and 43% in favor with 2,853 ballots cast. The village saw a mostly even split between absentee ballots and in person voters this election. A total of 1,384 were absentee voters while 1,469 people voted in person.

The charter amendment would have revised language about annual compensati­on for both the village council and village president. Both receive $900 a year for their work. The amendment would have raised that to $2,000 annually for members of the council beginning in November 2022 and to $2,500 annually for the village president starting this November.
