There will be another millage vote this Tuesday (May 6, 2014) for the Tahquamenon Area Schools. The language on the ballot is below – please note this language is different than the February 25 election. It is the same language as the May, 2013 election.
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 Tahquamenon Area Schools, Luce, Schoolcraft, Mackinac and Chippewa Counties, Michigan, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for the year 2014, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2014 is approximately $3,008,153 (this is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2013 tax levy)?
