ANN ARBOR AREA TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION MILLAGE

To maintain the expanded levels of public transit and paratransit services—including services for seniors and people who have disabilities—shall the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) renew and restore an annual tax of 0.7000 mills ($0.7000 per $1000 of taxable value) on all taxable property within the City of Ann Arbor, the City of Ypsilanti, and the Charter Township of Ypsilanti for the years 2019-2023 inclusive? An annual tax of 0.7000 mills was first approved in 2014. This millage has been reduced to 0.6860 mills under the Headlee Amendment. This proposal would renew the millage and restore it to the originally approved 0.7000 mill amount. The estimate of revenue if this millage is approved is $4,849,066 for 2019. This revenue will be disbursed to TheRide and, as required by law, a portion may be subject to capture by the downtown development authorities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, the Washtenaw County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, and the local development finance authority of the Charter Township of Ypsilanti.
