SPS Board Of Education Seeks Your Support
The Saugatuck Board of Education invites you to once again stand with our school and cast a yes vote for BOTH operational mileages that will be on the ballot on November 7, 2017.
Saugatuck Public Schools has two proposals on the ballot, the Operating Millage and the Community Recreation Millage. The impact of these proposals is very simple – a YES! vote keeps our school open and our community recreation program going. This is NOT a tax increase.
The ballot language itself is a little complicated due to legal nature of the document, but the bottom line is that, when approved, the district will be able to levy no more than 18 mils on non-homestead properties.
The ballot asks for 20 mils only to ensure that over the course of the three-year period, the 18 mills maximum is maintained.
Again – this is for non-homestead properties only and it is not an increase.
Homesteaded properties will not face an increase either!
In addition, the district is asking for a renewal of the .25 mils to fund all of our Community Recreation programming.
This is a straight renewal of the millage from 2013. Both proposals are for 2017, 2018 and 2019 - keeping our schools open – and excelling – for another three years.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Should any community members have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any of your Saugatuck Public Schools Board of Education.
