Residents in the Ann Arbor Public School district are being asked to vote on a new operating millage Tuesday, May 8th.
The proposal would allow the district to levy up to 18 mills in taxes on non-homestead properties in the area and would replace the district’s current millage.
Superintendent Dr. Jeanice Swift says the millage is an essential part of their funding, and they couldn’t function without it.
“It would be devastating to the district,” says Swift. “The district would not be able to operate without this operating millage.”
Swift says the money from the millage helps pay for day-to-day operations, maintenance, and teachers’ salaries.
