February 24, 2014

mcc logoSCOTTVILLE — Voters in the Mason County Central School district will go to the polls Tuesday to vote on two operating millage renewals for non-homestead properties. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Below is the ballot language for the renewals:

 

I.                             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 Mason County Central School District, Mason, Lake and Oceana Counties, Michigan, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) 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 $1,771,162 (this is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2013 tax levy)?

 

        II.                                                OPERATING MILLAGE PROPOSAL

 

This proposal will enable the school district 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 Mason County Central School District, Mason, Lake and Oceana Counties, Michigan, be increased by 1.5 mills ($1.50 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) 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 $147,597 (this millage is to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and will be levied only to the extent necessary to restore that reduction)?
