This proposal authorizes Washtenaw Community College to levy 0.85 mill for operating purposes for 10 years. Of the .85 mill, .8332 represents a renewal of the 0.85 mill authorization approved by the electors in 2004, which expired with the 2016 tax levy and 0.0168 mill represents a restoration of the portion of the same authority which was reduced by application of the Headlee Amendment.
Shall the limitation on the total amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property within the Washtenaw Community College district, State of Michigan, be increased by 0.85 mill ($0.85 per $1,000 of Taxable Valuation) for a period of 10 years, the years 2017 through 2026 inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes? Of the 0.85 mill, 0.8332 represents a renewal of that portion of a 0.85 mill authorization previously approved by the electors as reduced by operation of the Headlee Amendment, and 0.0168 represents new millage in the amount equal to the amount reduced by operation of the Headlee Amendment. It is estimated that the 0.85 mill would raise $12,500,000 for the College when first levied in 2017.
