COUNTY PROPOSALS
PROPOSITION O OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL
To renew the millage authorized in 2009, shall Wayne County be authorized to continue to levy this millage at the estimated 2019 rollback rate of 0.9529 (about 95 cents per $1,000 of taxable valuation) for ten more years (2020 through 2029), and proceeds used to continue existing County services, including programs for arrest, detention and prosecution of criminals, juvenile court and related services, public health, recreation, County parks, job training, senior citizen services, and programs for meeting medical needs of the poor, the disabled, and the aged? This renewal is projected to generate $42,129,703 in 2020.

PROPOSITION P PARKS MILLAGE RENEWAL
To renew the millage authorized in 2016, shall Wayne County levy this millage at the estimated 2020 rollback rate of 0.2459 mills (about 25 cents per $1,000 of taxable valuation) for five more years (2021 through 2025) to continue to improve and operate several parks and related facilities, including Hines Park, Elizabeth Park, Chandler Park, and improvements to municipal parks in the 43 communities as provided in an implementing ordinance through an annual allocation by commission district of the greater of $50,000 or 15% of the total funds generated from that district, on the condition that, for any year for which this continued levy would be imposed, Wayne County must budget from other sources an amount equal to its 1995-1996 fiscal year appropriation for parks? This renewal is projected to generate $10,871,753 in 2021.

LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL
This proposal would renew the existing authority of the Grosse Ile Township Schools, which expires with the School District’s 2020 tax levy, to levy mills for general operating purposes on taxable property in the School District, to the extent that such property is not exempt from such levy, and would restrict the levy on principal residences (owner occupied homes) to no more than 3.5042 mills.  Under this proposal, the School District would be allowed to continue to levy the statutory limit of 18 mills on non-Homestead property (principally industrial and commercial real property and residential rental property), and would levy only that portion of the mills on principal residence property necessary to allow the School District to receive the full per pupil foundation allowance permitted by the State.  Authorization at the levels proposed would also reduce or eliminate the need to seek periodic voter approval of additional authority in the event of future Headlee rollbacks.

As a renewal of authorization which expires with the 2020 levy, shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the Grosse Ile Township Schools, County of Wayne, Michigan, to the extent such property is not statutorily exempt, be renewed at 21.3276 mills ($21.3276 per $1,000 of taxable value), of which not more than 3.5042 mills may be imposed on principal residences, for ten (10) years, the years 2021 to 2030, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses of the School District?  It is estimated that $21.3276 mills ($21.3276 per $1,000 of taxable valuation) would raise approximately $2,250,000 in 2021.
