(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 24, 2019)

Oak Park, Royal Oak Township, Southfield, MI- Voters in the Oak Park School District have one issue on the May 7, 2019 ballot, with language as follows:

This authorization will renew the authority of School District of the City of Oak Park to levy 17.8508 mills previously authorized and levied for general  operating  purposes  on  non-homestead  taxable  property  (comprised  primarily of  industrial,  commercial,  and  rental  property).    This  authority,  combined  with  another  unexpired  authorization,  would  allow  the  School  District  to  receive  revenues  at  the  full  foundation allowance permitted by the State.As a renewal of authority which expired with the 2018 tax levy, shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable non-homestead  property  in  the  School  District  of  the  City  of  Oak  Park,  County  of  Oakland,  State  of  Michigan,  be  increased  by  17.8508 mill ($17.8508 on each $1,000 of taxable value) for twenty (20) years, the years 2019 to 2038, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses?  This millage would raise an estimated $3,832,031 for the School District in the first year that it is levied.
