Michigan: St. Joseph County - Special education millage proposal

This proposal requests additional millage to permit the continued levy by the intermediate school district of the maximum mills for special education previously approved by the electors.


Shall the current charter limitation on the annual property tax rate for the education of students with a disability in St. Joseph County Intermediate School District, Michigan, be increased by .2946 mill ($0.2946 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), for a period of 20 years, 2014 to 2033, inclusive (this increase will allow the intermediate school district to levy the rate of 2.75 mills previously approved by the electors which has been reduced as required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963); the estimate of the revenue the intermediate school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2014 is approximately $633,488 from local property taxes authorized herein?
