LMTA asking Ludington, Scottville voters for millage renewal. 

LUDINGTON — The taxpayers of the cities of Ludington and Scottville pay a millage to support Ludington Mass Transit Authority. The dial-a-ride service is requesting a renewal of that millage during the Aug. 4 Primary Election. 

LMTA is requesting the taxpayers of Ludington and Scottville to renew the millage in an amount not to exceed 1.2267 mills, which equates to $1.2267 on each $1,000 of taxable property value, for five years, beginning 2021 and ending in 2025. 

If passed, the tax will raised approximately $370,000 in the first year. 

The ballot language is as follows: 

Shall the Ludington Mass Transportation Authority, County of Mason, Michigan, be authorized to levy a renewal of the previously voted tax increase, which expires in 2020, in an amount not to exceed 1.2267 mills ($1.2267 on each $1,000 of taxable value) against all taxable property within the Ludington Mass Transportation Authority limits (the jurisdictional limits of the City of Ludington and the City of Scottville) for a period of five (5) years, 2021 to 2025, inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for all public transportation authority purposes permitted by law, including all capital and operating expenses? The estimate of the revenue the Ludington Mass Transportation Authority will collect if the millage is approved and levied by the Ludington Mass Transportation Authority in the first year (2021) is approximately $370,000. A portion of the revenue collected may be subject to capture by the Downtown Development Authority and the Mason County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.
