Update, Wednesday, Aug. 9: The school millage passed in Huron Township
Voters in Huron Township will decide Tuesday on the renewal of a non-homestead operating millage for Huron School District.
Money that the district receives from the non-homestead millage supports the annual operational budget and the day-to-day operations of the school district.
Classroom supplies, textbooks, equipment utilities, transportation, and teachers are all paid from the operational budget.
Here is the exact language that will be seen on the ballot in Huron Township:
This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of not to exceed 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 and renews millage that will expire with the Winter 2017 tax levy.
Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18.5980 ($18.5980 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 Huron School District, Wayne and Monroe Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 5 years, 2018 to 2022, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and 18 mills is levied in 2018 is approximately $2,065,000 [or $2.1 million] (this is a renewal of millage that will expire with the 2017 tax levy)?
Polls in Huron Township are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
