And the following 2 county ballot proposals and the Lakeview Public School District Proposal:
Macomb County Art Institute Authority
Renewal of Macomb County Art Institute Authority Millage
In 2012 the electors of Macomb County approved a 10-year millage to provide County residents with services from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) through the Macomb County Art Institute Authority.
As a result of the millage, the DIA provides Macomb County residents with free K-12 school field trips including free transportation, free senior group programming with free transportation, and unlimited free general admission. To ensure transparency, the DIA submits to an annual independent audit and posts financial reports online.
To continue to provide revenue to the DIA, which will allow these DIA services for the residents of the County to continue, the Art Institute Authority is permitted by law to seek a renewal of the millage at a rate of no more than the current 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 taxable value) on all real and personal property in the County. Revenue from this millage will be disbursed to the Art Institute Authority and then transferred to the DIA as permitted by and for the purposes set forth in Public Act 296 of 2010. It is estimated that if approved and levied, this millage renewal would generate approximately $ 5.8 million in 2022.
Do you approve the renewal of the 0.2 mill on all taxable property located within the County for a period of 10 years from 2022 through 2031?
Macomb Intermediate School District
Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal
Pursuant to state law, revenue raised by the proposed enhancement millage will be collected by the Macomb Intermediate School District and distributed in accordance with State law to local public school districts and eligible public school academies within the boundaries of the Macomb Intermediate School District and the Macomb Intermediate School District based on pupil membership count.
Shall the limitation on the amount of ad valorem taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the Macomb Intermediate School District, State of Michigan, be increased by 1.90 mills ($1.90 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of ten (10) years, 2020 to 2029, inclusive, as new additional millage to provide funds to enhance other state and local funding for intermediate school district, school district or eligible public school academy operating purposes? This millage would raise an estimated $55 million ($55,000,000) if approved and first levied in 2020.
The revenue from this millage will be disbursed to the following school districts and intermediate school district and any public school academies eligible to receive enhancement millage revenue under the Revised School Code:

OPERATING MILLAGE PROPOSAL
CITY PRECINCTS 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15
This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of not to exceed 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its full revenue per pupil foundation allowance and restores millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963.
Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Lakeview Public Schools, Macomb County, Michigan, be renewed by 18.3055 mills ($18.3055 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 4 years, 2021 to 2024, inclusive, and also be increased by .5 mill ($.50 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 4 years, 2021 to 2024, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and 18 mills are levied in 2021 is approximately $2,450,000 (this is a renewal of millage that will expire with the 2020 levy and the addition of millage which will be levied only to the extent necessary to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the “Headlee” amendment to the Michigan Constitution of 1963)?
