Vote on May 8…
On May 8, two ballot proposals will come before Hudsonville School parents and community members. The first is our annual Non-Homestead Millage renewal. This is an annual renewal voters have approved for the past 23 years and would generate approximately $4.4 million dollars of operating revenue for our school district. Of note, this is not a tax on primary residences and is not a new tax. Additionally, the State of Michigan assumes all districts levy the full 18 mills. If voters reject the proposal, our district’s state aid is reduced accordingly.
The second proposal is our Building and Site Sinking Fund. Effective March of 2017, Public Act 319 expanded a district’s ability to utilize Building and Site Funds for security and technology. The House passed the bill in June, 2016 with a vote of 107-1, and the Senate passed it 36-0 in October, 2016. Even though Hudsonville has had this millage for the past 25 years, because the legislature expanded the use, the ballot language identifies it as a new millage. Of note, both millages will MAINTAIN our citizens’ current millage rate and will not raise taxes. Previous improvements made as a result of this one mill levy have included additional classrooms to accommodate all day every day kindergarten, roof repairs, boiler replacements, and land acquisitions.
