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 2024 tax levy.
Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18.3309 mills ($18.3309 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 Tecumseh Public Schools, Lenawee County, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 5 years, 2025 to 2029, 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 2025 is approximately $2,918,556 (this is a renewal of millage that will expire with the 2024 tax levy)?
Important note: The district will never levy more than 18 mills as the ballot question and law strictly forbids it. The 18.3309 mills has a contingency should the millage dip below 18 mills. Again, the district can only levy up to 18 mills.
