Chelsea School District - 1 Proposal

OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL

This proposal renews millage rates that will expire with the 2013 and 2014 tax levies, respectively, and will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its full revenue per pupil foundation allowance. The remaining 1.5126 mills are only available to restore millage lost as a result of any "Headlee rollback" required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and will only be levied to the extent necessary to restore that reduction to be able to continue to levy 18 mills.

Shall the current authorized millage rate limitation of 19.5126 mills ($19.5126 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Chelsea School District, Washtenaw and Jackson Counties, Michigan, of which 16.7786 mills be renewed for a period of 7 years, 2014 to 2020, inclusive, and 2.8340 mills be renewed for a period of 6 years, 2015 to 2020, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect in the first year, if the millage is approved and levied, is approximately $3,500,000 (this is a renewal of millage rates which will expire with the 2013 and 2014 tax levies, respectively)?

 

Clinton Community Schools

OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL

This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its revenue per pupil foundation allowance.

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Clinton Community Schools, Lenawee and Washtenaw Counties, Michigan, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for the year 2013, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2013 is approximately $965,293.24 (this is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2012 tax levy)?

 

Dexter Community Schools - 2 Proposals

NON-HOMESTEAD MILLAGE REAUTHORIZATION PROPOSAL

This proposal would reauthorize the levy of mills by the Dexter Community Schools for general operating purposes, and would restore the authority lost through application of the Headlee Amendment to the Michigan Constitution. The School District’s existing authorization, which has been reduced by application of the Headlee Amendment, expires with the 2013 levy. Approval of this proposal together with other millage authority proposed to be approved by the voters would assure the School District of the authority to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills against non-homestead property required for the School District to receive revenues from the State at the full foundation allowance permitted by the State.

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable non-­homestead property in the Dexter Community Schools, Counties of Washtenaw and Livingston, Michigan, be increased by 18.00 mills ($18.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) for twenty (20) years, the years 2014 to 2033, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses of the District? If approved, this millage would raise an estimated $4,130,000 for the District in 2014.

 

NON-HOMESTEAD MILLAGE "CUSHION" PROPOSAL

This authorization will allow the Dexter Community Schools to levy mills previously authorized for general operating purposes on non-homestead property for which authority expires with the District's 2013 tax levy. If the Non-Homestead Millage Reauthorization Proposal is also approved by the electors, approval of this proposal would assure the School District of the authority to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills against non-homestead property required for the School District to receive revenues at the full foundation allowance permitted by the State compensating for future Headlee rollbacks of up to 3.00 mills.

Shall the Dexter Community Schools, Counties of Washtenaw and Livingston, Michigan be authorized to levy 3.00 mills ($3.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) by increasing the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable non-homestead property in the school district, for twenty (20) years, the years 2014 to 2033, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses of the District? This millage would raise approximately $41,000 in the first year that it is levied.
