CHARLEVOIX-EMMET INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL DISTRICT AREA CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION MILLAGE RENEWAL AND RESTORATION PROPOSAL
This proposal will allow the intermediate school district to continue to levy millage previously approved by the electors for area career and technical education programs and restores millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963.
Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property in Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District, Michigan, be increased by .75 mill ($0.75 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 4 years, 2018 to 2021, inclusive, to provide funds for area career and technical education programs (0.7445 mill of the above is a renewal of millage that expired with the 2017 tax levy and 0.0055 mill is a restoration of millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963); the estimate of the revenue the intermediate school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2018 is approximately $4,007,090 from local property taxes authorized herein?
