SCHOOL PROPOSALS:

WEST SHORE COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT
(Qualified Electors in the Townships of Beaver and Troy)

Operating Millage Renewal Proposition

This proposition is to renew millage for community college operating purposes which expires with the 2021 tax levy.

Shall the previous voted increase in the constitutional tax rate limitation on the amount of taxes imposed upon all property within the community college district of West Shore Community College, Michigan, be renewed in the amount of 0.7062 mill ($0.7062 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of eight (8) years, 2022 through 2029, inclusive, subject to reduction as provided by law, to provide funds for community college operating purposes (estimated to provide revenues of approximately $2,388,607 in 2022)?

There are tax increment authorities in the community college district that capture and retain for authorized purposes tax increment revenues from property taxes levied by the community college. Such capture would include a portion of this millage levy. The total amount of captured tax increment revenues from such millage in the first calendar year of the levy is estimated to be $53,100. The following tax increment authorities in the community college district presently capture a portion of the community college’s property tax levy: the Downtown Development Authorities of the City of Manistee, City of Ludington, City of Scottville and the Charter Township of Filer; and Mason County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.
