It passed with 614 Yes votes to 554 No votes.

The City of Bronson had two proposals for their residents, both dealing with property. Proposal 1 would allow the City to sell 20 acres of farm land east of Ryan School that had been designated for cemetery expansion, but was no longer needed.

Proposal 2 would give the City permission to sell 100 acres of land designated for City expansion. The land was known as the Schmid Farms on Parham Road.
