August 2 Ballot Proposals
WASHTENAW COMMUNITY COLLEGE - 1 PROPOSAL
WASHTENAW COMMUNITY COLLEGE
MILLAGE RENEWAL AND
This proposal authorizes Washtenaw Community College to levy 0.85 mill
for operating purposes for 10 years. Of the .85 mill, .8332 represents a
renewal of the 0.85 mill authorization approved by the electors in 2004, which
expired with the 2016 tax levy and 0.0168 mill represents a restoration of the
portion of the same authority which was reduced by application of the Headlee
Shall the limitation on the total amount of taxes which may be imposed on
taxable property within the Washtenaw Community College district, State of
Michigan, be increased by 0.85 mill ($0.85 per $1,000 of Taxable Valuation) for
a period of 10 years, the years 2017 through 2026 inclusive, to provide funds
for operating purposes? Of the 0.85 mill, 0.8332 represents a renewal of that
portion of a 0.85 mill authorization previously approved by the electors as
reduced by operation of the Headlee Amendment, and 0.0168 represents new millage
in the amount equal to the amount reduced by operation of the Headlee
Amendment. It is estimated that the 0.85 mill would raise $12,500,000 for the
College when first levied in 2017.
