On the Ballot: Sylvan Lake Public Safety Millage

Sylvan Lake, MI- Voters in Sylvan Lake will vote on a Public Safety millage on the Nov. 6 ballot.  Ballot Language is as follows:

Sylvan Lake City Charter Amendment Proposal 1 Shall the Charter be amended to delete Sections 13.5(b) and 13.5(c), which currently allow the levy of millages in the amount of 1.8711 mills  and 4.6778 mills, respectively, and replace them with a new Section 13.5(b) establishing a single new additional millage of 7.0 mills for public  safety purposes, from 2019 to 2028 inclusive?  It is estimated that if levied, 7.0 mills would raise approximately $662,970 when first levied in 2019.    This  would  be  in  place  of  the  approximately  $620,246  that  the  two millages  being  repealed  would  have  raised.    The City’s other   Charter authority to levy taxes would be unaffected


Election Day is Nov. 6, 2018.  Find more information on ballot proposals and candidates at Oakland County Clerk’s website, and Oakland County Times Election Page.
