RICHLAND TOWNSHIP — Voters in the Vestaburg Community Schools district renewed a non-homestead operating millage proposal in a special election today.
Voters approved the ballot proposal with 288 “yes” votes to 141 “no” votes, or a difference of 67% to nearly 33%.
The ballot proposal asks whether the currently authorized millage rate of 18.9917 mills ($18.9917 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) shall be renewed for six years (from 2024 to 2029) to provide funds for school operation purposes. Now that it’s approved, the school will collect approximately $632,471 in the first year of the millage in 2024.
Vestaburg Superintendent Brandon Hubbard noted that the millage renewal is for non-homesteads only and does not affect school district homeowners.
