MCE voters asked to renew millage

August 5, 2013

CUSTER — Voters in the Mason County Eastern school district will vote on a millage renewal Tuesday during the primary election. The proposal allows the district to levy the maximum rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residences and other property exempted by law. It is for up to 19.2595 mills ($19.2595 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation). The 20-year renewal is estimated to generate $1.4 million in 2014 for MCE.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The ballot language is as follows:

MASON COUNTY EASTERN SCHOOL DISTRICT

OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL

This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory maximum 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 and renews millage that will expire with the 2013 tax levy.

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 19.2595 mills ($19.2595 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 Mason County Eastern District, Mason, Lake and Manistee Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 20 years, 2014 to 2033, inclusive, 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 $1,443,547 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2013 tax levy)?
