Aug. 6. Election – Walled Lake Public Safety Millage Renewal

Aug. 6. Election – Walled Lake Public Safety Millage Renewal


Walled Lake, MI-  Walled Lake voters will decide Aug. 6, 2019 if they wish to renew funding for police and fire services.  Here is the ballot language:

Shall the City be authorized to continue to levy an amount not to exceed 3.95 mills ($3.95 on each $1,000 of taxable value) on all taxable real and tangible personal property within the City of Walled Lake for a period of five (5) years, 2020 to 2024 inclusive, for continued exclusive use to provide funds to staff, equip, maintain and operate the Public Safety Department and for any other Fire, Police, or Public Safety purposes authorized by law after the public safety millage approved in 2014 expires in 2019?

If approved, the maximum rate amount of the renewed and extended millage (3.95 mills) shall not exceed the maximum rate amount of the current public safety millage (3.95 mills) due to expire at the end of 2019.  The revenue the City expects to collect if the millage is approved and levied in the 2020 calendar year is estimated to be $830,155.  An incremental portion of this revenue may be subject to capture by the Walled Lake Downtown Development Authority under applicable state laws.
