City of Lansing essential services millage renewal

City of Lansing essential services millage renewalShall the City maintain its property taxing capacity at 20 mills for the next five (5) years (from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2022 inclusive), which is .8308 mills in excess of the current Headlee Amendment limit, and allow the City to renew the current levy of 19.44 mills for the purpose of funding essential services, including police protection, fire protection, local road and sidewalk maintenance? For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2017, the continuation of the additional millage levied is estimated to result in $8 million of revenue to be disbursed to the City of Lansing. The City of Lansing currently levies 19.44 mills. While there are no current plans to do so, if this measure is approved, and the City were to levy the additional .56 mills in excess of 19.44 mills to the maximum amount of 20 mills, it would result in an additional $1.12 million in estimated revenue to be disbursed to the City.YesNo
