PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL 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 2020 tax levy.
Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Portland Public Schools, Ionia, Clinton and Eaton Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 4 years, 2021 to 2024, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and 18 mills are levied in 2021 is approximately $1,418,098 (this is a renewal of millage that will expire with the 2020 tax levy)?
Absentee ballots can be requested by contacting your local township or city clerk. Please note that the Ionia County Clerk’s Office does not distribute absentee ballots.
