KEEP OUR TAXES LOCAL so we can keep our residents safe

PA 345 AND Charter 1 are NOT part of the Michigan sales tax proposal      

Esitmated taxes from City Hall

In 2015 a home with an average market value of $60,000 and a taxable value of $30,000, the total property tax would be $1,563.

In 2008 that same house would have had an estimated value of $87,500 and a taxable value of $43,750, the total property tax would have been $2,151.

Pre recession property tax- $2,151        

With the passing of PA 345 in 2015 -  $1,563

With the millage passing you would be paying $588 LESS than pre-recession rates.


Property tax values have declined over 30% since 2008.

For the taxable property value to increase back to 2008 levels, assuming a Headlee capped maximum increase of 2% per year, it will take 19 years to get back to this level.

 ACT 345 MILLAGE AND CHARTER AMENDMENT ON THE MAY 5 BALLOT

Two proposals relating to the approval of a Public Act 345 millage will be on the May 5 ballot.  These proposals will amend the City Charter and set up a separate pension system and funding stream for the Police & Fire pension system plus implement a millage for funding the pension system.  Both the charter amendment and the millage must pass for the millage to be enacted.  The ballot language for both proposals is below:
