MACOMB COMMUNITY COLLEGE
STATE OF MICHIGAN
OPERATING MILLAGE PROPOSAL
This Proposal would permit the College to levy 1.464 mills for a period of twenty years, which will support general operations including technology. This Proposal combines, restores and continues prior operational and technology millages at the same level as initially approved by voters in 2000 for 1.464 mills, which are set to expire in 2020.
Shall prior authorizations increasing the limitation on the total amount of operating taxes which may be imposed on all taxable property within the Community College District of the County of Macomb, be replaced and continued in the amount of 1.4072 mills and increased in the amount of 0.0568 mills for a total authorization of 1.464 mills ($1.46 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), for a period of twenty (20) years, 2018 to 2038, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes including technology? This operating millage, if approved and levied, would provide estimated operating revenues to the College of $38,000,000 during the 2018 calendar year.
