In just a few weeks Washtenaw County voters will decide on a proposed 2-mill enhancement millage.
If passed the millage would raise about $680 per student in the county according to Brian Marcel of the Washtenaw Intermediate School District.
The 2 mill tax mean that a homeowner with a $200,000 house with a taxable value of $100,000 would pay $200 more a year.
The campaign comes after each of Washtenaw County’s 10 traditional school districts passed resolutions asking that this be put on the ballot and as the state.
Proponents argue that the millage is important in the face of state cuts to school spending, that it is important to keep Washtenaw County’s economy from slipping further, and that per-pupil funding from the state has decreased 9 percent since 1994, after inflation.
That’s what they say. What do you say?
