 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Grosse Ile Township will be voting on the following millage proposals as presented and listed below:

Renewal of Wayne County Art Institute Authority Millage

In 2012 the electors of Wayne County approved a 10-year millage to provide County residents with services from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) through the Wayne County Art Institute Authority.

As a result of the millage, the DIA provides Wayne County residents with free k-12 school field trips including free transportation, free senior group programming with free transportation, and unlimited free general admission.  To ensure transparency, the DIA submits to an annual independent audit and posts financial reports online.

To continue to provide revenue to the DIA, which will allow these DIA services for the residents of the County to continue, the Art Institute Authority is permitted by law to seek a renewal of the millage at a rate of no more than the current 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 taxable value) on all real and personal property in the County.  Revenue from this millage will be disbursed to the Art Institute Authority and then transferred to the DIA as permitted by and for the purposes set forth in Public Act 296 of 2010.  It is estimated that if approved and levied, this millage renewal would generate approximately $8,500,000 in 2022.

NO

 Building and Site Sinking Fund Millage Replacement Proposal

This proposal, if approved by the electors, will allow the Grosse Ile Township Schools to continue to levy a building and site sinking fund millage, the proceeds of which will be used to make infrastructure improvements and repairs to the School District’s facilities and also to allow for the purchase of real estate for sites for, and the construction or repair of, school buildings, for school security improvements, or for the acquisition or upgrading of technology.  This proposal is a request for a total of 1.00 mills ($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value), which will consist of 0.75 mills ($0.75 per $1,000 of taxable value) of the voter approved building and site sinking fund millage that will otherwise expire on May 5, 2020 with 0.0061 mills ($0.0061 per $1,000 of taxable value) being a restoration of millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution and with 0.25 mills ($0.25 per $1,000 of taxable value) being new millage.  Pursuant to State Law, the expenditure of the building and site sinking fund millage proceeds must be audited, and the proceeds cannot be used for teacher, administrator or employee salaries, maintenance or other operating expenses.

Shall the Grosse Ile Township Schools be authorized to levy 1.00 mills ($1,000 of taxable value), for a period of five (5) years, from 2020 through and including 2024 to replace its building and site sinking fund for the purpose of the construction or repair of school buildings or any other purpose allowed under Michigan law; with 0.0061 mills ($0.0061 per $1,000 of taxable value) being a restoration of millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution and with 0.25 mills ($0.25 per $1,000 of taxable value) being new millage?  This millage would provide estimated revenues to the Grosse Ile Township Schools of approximately six hundred dollars ($627,500) in the first year that it is levied.

YES
NO
