Allendale Public Schools Millage Facts: Election Day ~ Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Q:  Voters just approved the Non-Homestead Millage last November. Why is it on the ballot again?

A: When property taxable values grow faster than the cost of living index, it triggers a millage reduction fraction, required by the 1978 Headlee Amendment within the Michigan Constitution of 1963. Allendale Township property values increased significantly in 2017. As a result, the millage reduction fraction brought down the local Non-Homestead millage from the voted 18.00 mills to 16.5661 mills earlier this year.  This would result in a $312,000 loss of revenue for the 2017-2018 school year.
