PROPOSAL SECTION
COUNTY PROPOSALS
OAKLAND COUNTY ART INSTITUTE AUTHORITY MILLAGE
The Oakland County Art Institute Authority established pursuant to Public Act 296 of 2010 to allow for continuing support of art institute services for the students, residents and visitors of Oakland County.  The law allows the Authority to seek authorization from the electors to levy a tax of not more than 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 of taxable value) on real and personal property to provide revenue to an art institute services provider for this purpose.  Accordingly, to continue providing art institute services to benefit the residents of Oakland County, shall a 0.2 mill on all of the taxable property located within the County be imposed for a period of ten (10) years, being years 2012 through 2021? It is estimated that if approved and levied, this new millage would generate approximately $9,847,191 in 2012.
TOWNSHIP PROPOSALS
RENEWAL OF FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES OPERATING MILLAGE
Shall the Charter Township of Independence be authorized to continue the previously authorized levy of up to 3.1688 mills for a period of four (4) years, starting with the December 2012 levy, to provide fire protection and emergency services, including advanced life support, in the Township?
This proposed millage is a renewal of previously authorized millage for the above-stated purpose.  Approval of this proposal would renew a tax limitation increase of $3.17 per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township.  It is estimated that this proposal would result in the authorization to collect $4,217,400.00 in the first year if approved and levied.  It is estimated that 95.68% of the annual millage revenue would be disbursed to the Charter Township of Independence for fire and emergency services and, as required by law, 4.32% would be disbursed to the Township's Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority.  The amount disbursed to the Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority shall be collected solely from properties within the Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority District.
ADDITIONAL FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES OPERATING MILLAGE
Shall the Charter Township of Independence be authorized to levy up to .59 mills for a period of four (4) years, starting with the December 2012 levy, to be added to the above proposed millage renewal (for a total millage of 3.7588), for purposes of providing fire protection and emergency services, including advanced life support, in the Township?
This proposed millage authorizes new additional millage for the above-stated purpose.  Approval of this proposal would permit an additional tax limitation increase of 59 cents per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township.  It is estimated that this proposal would result in the authorization to collect an additional $785,240.00 in the first year if approved and levied.  It is estimated that 95.68% of the annual millage revenue would be disbursed to the Charter Township of Independence for fire and emergency services and, as required by law, 4.32% would be disbursed to the Township's Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority.  The amount disbursed to the Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority shall be collected solely from properties within the Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority District.

Don't know where you're supposed to vote in Michigan? The answer is here!

The state of Michigan came up with a great webpage (here) where you can look up:
  • if you are registered to vote or not,
  • the polling location where you are registered to vote (including address, phone number, map, and name of the location),
  • a map to your polling location,
  • and a sample ballot with everything that will be on the ballot 
It's a great tool.  Use it!
