On the Ballot: Oakland Township Land Preservation Millage

Oakland Township, MI- Voters in Oakland Township are asked to vote on a Land Preservation Millage.  The ballot language is below:

Oakland Township, MI – Oakland Township Renewal of Land Preservation Millage Shall the Charter Township of Oakland be authorized to  renew a levy of up  to 0.6310 of one mill for a period of ten (10) years starting with  the  December  2021  levy  for  the  purpose  of  continuing  to  provide  funds  and  financing  for  the  timely  acquisition  of  land,  the  protection  of   natural habitat, and the preservation of green spaces within the Township?

Approval of this proposal would renew the previously authorized tax limitation increase of approximately 63 cents per $1,000.00 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township.  Revenue from the  levy  renewal  shall  be  disbursed  to  the  Charter  Township  of  Oakland.

Based  upon  the  projected  2021  Township  wide  taxable  value,  it  i s  estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect up to $924,318 of revenue in the first year (2021) if this  millage renewal  is authorized and levied.

Election Day is Nov. 6, 2018.
