Proposal:

HURON SCHOOL DISTRICT

OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL

This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of not to exceed 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 and renews millage that will expire with the 2022 tax levy.

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18.5980 mills ($18.5980 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Huron School District, Wayne and Monroe Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 10 years, 2023 to 2032, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and 18 mills are levied in 2023 is approximately $2,375,000 (this is a renewal of millage that will expire with the 2022 taxy levy)?

 

Question and Answer


What is the Non-Homestead Operating Millage Renewal?

It is 18 mills levied on non-homestead property that supports the children of the Huron School District. Non-Homestead property is only commercial, industrial, and non-primary residential property. Remember, you DO NOT PAY non-homestead taxes on your primary home.

Is this a new tax?

NO, this is only a RENEWAL of a current millage on non-homestead property, which does not include primary residence or other property exempted by law.

How does the Non-Homestead Operating Millage affect our schools?

The Non-Homestead Operating Millage accounts for about 7.58% of our operating budget. Should the Non-Homestead fail, the Huron School District would lose over $2.3 million dollars per year in operating funds that can not be recovered.

How long is the renewal for?

The Non-Homestead Operating Millage renewal is for 10 years.

If it is an 18-mill renewal, why does the ballot say 18.598?

The law caps the millage at 18 mills but allows districts to avoid further costs by asking for a higher rate in order to capture the full 18 mills in the case of a Headlee roll back. This can save money by avoiding unnecessary elections.

Where can I get more information?

For more information, contact your school office, or call 734-782-2441.

The funds generated from Non-Homestead monies are a significant part of your public school operating budget. Please remember to vote on this important issue.

Fast Facts:

  • Voting YES will not increase your taxes or the taxes of local businesses.
  • Voting NO will mean the Huron School District would lose approximately $2,375,000 per year, or over $950 per student per year.
