May 8, 2018 Special Election
The May 8 Special Election for the Ann Public Schools Millage is the next election in the City of Ann Arbor. City polling places in all wards will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
The last day to register to vote for the May 8 Special Election is Monday, April 9, 2018. Please email or call the City Clerk for more information or to check the status of your voter registration in the City.
The May 8 ballot includes the following school proposal:
PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF THE CITY OF ANN ARBOR - 1
PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF THE CITY OF ANN ARBOR
OPERATING MILLAGE PROPOSAL
This proposal would restore, replace and
extend the authority of the Public Schools of the City of Ann Arbor to levy up
to 18.00 mills for general school district operating purposes on taxable
property in the School District to the extent that such property is not exempt
from such levy and would restrict the levy on principal residences (owner
occupied homes) to no more than 12.3777 mills. If approved, this proposal would
restore the authority of the School District to levy the statutory limit of
18.00 mills on non-homestead (principally industrial and commercial real
property and residential rental property) which currently expires with the
School District’s 2019 tax levy and allow the district to continue to levy the
statutory limit of 18 mills on non homestead property in the event of future
Headlee rollbacks of up to 3 mills. Under existing law the School District
would levy on principal residence property only that portion of the mills (in
2017 4.3564 mills) necessary to allow the School District to receive the full
revenue per pupil foundation allowance permitted by the State.
Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which
may be imposed on taxable property in the Public Schools of the City of Ann
Arbor, County of Washtenaw, Michigan, be increased to 21 mills ($21.00 per
$1,000 of taxable value), with 18 mills being the maximum allowable levy ($18.00
per $1,000 of taxable value), to the extent such property is not statutorily
exempt, and of which not more than 12.3777 mills may be imposed on principal
residences, for twenty (20) years, the years 2018 to 2037, inclusive, to provide
funds for operating expenses of the school district? This millage would raise
approximately $84,779,572 in the first year of levy.
