In these times of budget and services cuts, Northville Public Schools’ voters must ensure that additional funds are not lost from the Schools’ budget and go to the polls on Nov. 8 to renew the previously approved non-homestead millage. This millage comprises $8 million of the Northville Schools’ annual operating budget and in these times every dollar, let alone such significant dollars, count.
It is important to note that by voting in favor of the non-homestead millage renewal, there are no added taxes for businesses, and no tax impact to homeowners of primary residences. In other words, we all simply continue to pay the same millage rate we pay now, while maintaining that vital school funding. Indeed, the state assumes that all districts levy the maximum allowable millage, and by making that assumption, it will not compensate the district for lost revenues if the millage does not pass. Thus, if this millage is not renewed, Northville Public Schools will lose over $8 million in revenue. That is a cut our Schools, our students and our community simply cannot afford.
VOTE TO RENEW THE NON-HOMESTEAD MILLAGE!
