  • Local School District Proposals 

    ALLENDALE PUBLIC
    SCHOOLS
    OPERATING MILLAGE
    RE-AUTHORIZATION
    PROPOSAL
    (EXCLUDING PRINCIPAL
    RESIDENCE AND OTHER
    EXEMPT PROPERTY)
    (This millage will allow the School
    District to levy not more than the
    statutory rate of 18 mills against
    non-principal residence and other
    non-exempt property required for
    the School District to receive its
    revenue per pupil foundation
    allowance.)
    Excepting principal residence
    property and other property
    exempt by law, shall the
    previously approved millage rate
    assessed against all other
    property in Allendale Public
    Schools, Ottawa County,
    Michigan, previously approved at
    18.0 mills and subsequently
    reduced to 17.8326 mills by the
    "Headlee Amendment" to the
    Michigan Constitution of 1963, be
    renewed and increased to 18
    mills ($18.00 on each $1,000.00
    of taxable value) for two years,
    2017 and 2018 inclusive, to
    provide funds for school operating
    purposes? (17.8326 of the 18.0
    mills is a renewal and 0.1674 mill
    is an increase to restore the
    millage rate reduced by the
    "Headlee Amendment".) If this
    millage is approved and levied, it
    is estimated that revenue in the
    amount of $2,641,000 will be
    collected by the School District in
    the first year.

    ALLENDALE PUBLIC
    SCHOOLS
    OPERATING MILLAGE
    ("HEADLEE CUSHION")
    PROPOSAL
    (This millage would allow the
    School District to continue to levy
    up to 18 mills for operating
    purposes, on non-principal
    residence and other non-exempt
    property, if its 18 mill
    authorization is reduced by the
    "Headlee Amendment" to the
    Michigan Constitution of 1963.
    Under existing law, the School
    District may not and will not levy
    more than 18 mills against such
    property.)
    Shall the limitation on the amount
    of taxes which may be assessed
    against all property, except
    principal residence property and
    other property exempt by law, in
    Allendale Public Schools, Ottawa
    County, Michigan, be increased
    by 1.0 mill ($1.00 on each
    $1,000.00 of taxable value) for
    two years, 2017 and 2018
    inclusive, to provide funds for
    school operating purposes? If this
    millage is approved and levied, it
    is estimated that revenue in the
    amount of $149,500 will be
    collected by the School District in
    the first year. (This millage would
    be levied only if and to the extent
    needed to offset a "Headlee"
    reduction of the School District's
    18 mill authorization and thereby
    restore the millage rate to 18
    mills.)
