School tax issues, board members on Michigan ballot

Elections in Michigan today will choose board members and decide tax issues in school districts in Monroe and Lenawee counties.

Many districts are asking voters to renew an 18-mill, non-homestead property tax, which covers commercial and rental properties but not primary residences.

A mill is $1 for every $1,000 in property valuation.

Several districts also are asking voters to renew sinking-fund taxes, which are used for facilities maintenance.

Voters in the Tecumseh Public School District are being presented with two bond issues for a total of 7.2 mills.

That tax would generate $36.7 million over 22 years. Because the district already is collecting 7.2 mills for a previous bond issue, passage would not raise local tax rates.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters are asked to present photo identification.
