Saugatuck Township Shall the previously approved but expired voted increase in the tax limitation imposed under the Michigan Constitution on real and personal property in Saugatuck Township, of 0.224 mill, reduced by required roll back to 0.2135 mill, be renewed and increased to 0.224 mill ($0.224 per $1,000.00 of taxable value) for five years, 2021 through 2025, inclusive, for the operation, maintenance, repair, construction, and renovation of the Township cemeteries; and shall the Township be authorized to levy the millage during each of these years? The millage would raise an estimated $76,198.75 in the first year the millage is levied.
Saugatuck/Douglas Library Shall the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library, County of Allegan, State of Michigan, be authorized to levy annually an amount not to exceed .25 mill ($.25 on each $1,000 of taxable value), of which .1883 mill is a renewal of the previously authorized millage rate that expired in 2020 and .0617 mill is new additional millage to restore the millage rate lost as a result of the Headlee Amendment millage reductions, against all taxable property within the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library district for a period of five (5) years, 2021 to 2025 inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for all district library purposes authorized by law? The estimate of the revenue the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library will collect in the first year of levy (2021) if the millage is approved and levied by the Library is approximately $175,000.
Hopkins Public Schools Operating Millage Proposal This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of not to exceed 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its revenue per pupil foundation allowance and renews millage that will expire with the 2021 tax levy.
