Primary Election on August 7 - Millage Renewal Vote

On the August 7, 2018 ballot, Essex Township residents will vote on a renewal of the roads millage.
Four years ago, Essex Township voted to increase the road millage by 0.5, which let the township use $26,300 more per year on the roads. 
With the money, Essex Township has been able to do many road projects, including repairing cracks, replacing culverts, putting on gravel, sealing bridges, and maintaining our roads. 
Voting on a renewal of the 0.5 millage will continue to allow the township to use an estimated $27,700 more a year on roads. 
Please see the newsletter that came with your taxes for more details.  
The August 2018 ballot millage renewal will read:
Shall the expired previous voted increase in the tax limitation imposed under Article IX, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution in Essex Township, of .5 mills ($.50 per $1,000 of taxable value), reduced to .4970 mills ($.497 per $1,000 of taxable value) by the required millage rollbacks, be renewed at up to .4970 mills ($.497 per $1,000 of taxable value) and levied for four (4) years, 2018 through 2021 inclusive, for maintaining, rebuilding, repaving, repairing, and improving the rural township roads, raising an estimated $27,700 in the first year the millage is levied?
