PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Plymouth Canton School District will be voting on the following bond proposal as presented and listed below:
Shall the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, Counties of Wayne and Washtenaw, State of Michigan, borrow the sum of not to exceed Two Hundred Seventy-Five Million Dollars ($275,000,000) and issue its general obligation unlimited tax bonds, in one or more series, for the purpose of paying for the cost of the following projects:
· Remodeling, equipping, re-equipping, furnishing and re-furnishing school buildings, performing arts center, activity and athletic fields, playgrounds and other facilities for safety and security, energy conservation and other purposes;
· Erecting, completing, equipping and furnishing a new stadium, activity and athletic facilities and a maintenance/storage facility and secure entryway, classroom, gymnasium, and natatorium additions to existing school buildings and other facilities;
· Acquiring and installing instructional technology infrastructure and equipment in school buildings and other facilities and the purchase of school buses; and
· Preparing, developing and improving sites at school buildings, playgrounds, activity and athletic fields and other facilities for traffic control, safety and security and other purposes?
The annual debt millage required to retire all bonds of the School District currently outstanding and proposed pursuant to this Proposal is expected to remain at or below the annual debt millage of 4.02 mills levied in 2019. The maximum number of years any series of bonds may be outstanding, exclusive of refunding, is not more than twenty (20) years; the estimated millage that will be levied to pay the proposed bonds in the first year is 0.98 mills (which is equal to $0.98 per $1,000 of taxable value); and the estimated simple average annual millage that will be required to retire each series of bonds is 1.65 mills annually ($1.65 per $1,000 of taxable value).
(Pursuant to State law, expenditure of bond proceeds must be audited, and the proceeds cannot be used for teacher, administrator or employee salaries, repair or maintenance costs or other operating expenses.)
Absentee ballots are available for all elections; registered voters may contact the local clerk to obtain an application for an absent voter ballot or stop in person.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Wayne County Art Institute Authority will be voting on the following millage proposal as presented and listed below:
In 2012 the electors of Wayne County approved a 10-year millage to provide County residents with services from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) through the Wayne County Art Institute Authority.
As a result of the millage, the DIA provides Wayne County residents with free K-12 school field trips including free transportation, free senior group programming with free transportation, and unlimited free general admission. To ensure transparency, the DIA submits to an annual independent audit and posts financial reports online.
To continue to provide revenue to the DIA, which will allow these DIA services for the residents of the County to continue, the Art Institute Authority is permitted by law to seek a renewal of the millage at a rate of no more than the current 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 taxable value) on all real and personal property in the County. Revenue from this millage will be disbursed to the Art Institute Authority and then transferred to the DIA as permitted by and for the purposes set forth in Public Act 296 of 2010. It is estimated that if approved and levied, this millage renewal would generate approximately $8,500,000 in 2022.
Do you approve the renewal of the 0.2 mill on all taxable property located within the County for a period of 10 years from 2022 through 2031?
