On the Ballot: Voters in Independence Township to Vote on Road Millage

Independence Township Road Infrastructure Improvement Millage Shall the Charter Township of Independence be authorized to levy a new additional millage of up to 2.0 mills (a tax limitation increase of up  to $2.00 per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township) for a limited period of four (4) years, starting with the December  2018  levy,  for  purposes  of  funding  the  improvement,  rehabilitation  and  repair  of  County  public  roads  including,  but  not  limited  to,  parts  of   Sashabaw,  Clintonville,  Waldon,  Maybee,  Clarkston,  White  Lake,  Andersonville,  Holcomb,  Flemings  Lake,  Walters,  and  Eston  Roads   (amounting to an estimated 28 miles of roadway) in the Charter Township of Independence?

If approved and levied, it is estimated that this proposal will result in the authorization to collect an estimated $3,167, 648 in the first year.  It  is  estimated  that  99.13%  of  the  annual  millage  revenue  will  be  disbursed  to  the  Charter  Township  of  Independence  for  public  road  improvements  and,  as  required  by  law,  0.87%  (8.7  tenths  of  one  percent)  will  be  disbursed  to  the  Sashabaw  Road  Corridor  Improvement   Authority collected solely from properties located in the Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority District.

Election Day is Nov. 6, 2018.
