Proposed 2019 Bond Information

During the winter of February 2017, the Board of Education wanted an assessment of our facilities and grounds to be completed to determine where we have been, where we are and what we need to consider as we move forward. The district contracted with TowerPinkster and Owen-Ames-Kimball Co. (O.A.K.) to conduct a facilities study during the first week of April (spring break). During the month of April and May their team developed a report based on their on site visits, document review, and multiple meetings and conversations with district staff. You can go through all of our information regarding the proposed 2019 bond information in our additional information links.

If the November 5, 2019 election is successful, the increase in taxes could potentially be offset by the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit. Below is a summary of the revised Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit:

Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit
Households that pay homestead property taxes greater than 3.2% of their annual income may be eligible for the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit. Eligible households may deduct up to 60% (up to 100% for senior citizens, please see the senior credit table) of the millage increase cost up to a $1,500 Homestead Tax Credit limit. The eligibility for the credit begins to decrease after household income exceeds $51,001 and ends completely after the household income exceeds $60,001. Please see the general reduction table and senior credit table for more information.

Please see the link below for the online tax calculator we created that estimates the impact on a taxpayer’s annual tax bill.
