Wayne County Enhancement Millage
 
During the September 22nd Board of Education meeting, the Northville Board of Education adopted the resolution supporting a renewal of the 2 mill property tax from 2022 to 2028.
 
The Northville Public Schools Board of Education commits to the community that it will continue to be transparent with the use of these public dollars, if the proposal is successful and will continue to put them to the best use it can determine of behalf of its students.
 
Millage renewal for Wayne County Enhancement Millage on the ballot this November 3rd, 2020.
 
Wayne RESA LogoThe county-wide millage has supported the Wayne RESA school districts for the last four years with over $300 per student per year. It has been essential for supporting students, and it is up for a renewal vote.
 
The regional enhancement millage proposal is a renewal request to voters to continue a current 2 mill property tax, first passed in 2016, that will generate revenue for all 33 Wayne County public school districts as well as public school academies in Wayne County.
 
How has Northville Public Schools utilized the Wayne County Enhancement Millage?
 
Northville Public Schools will receive approximately $310 per student, or a total of $2.3 million (current funding is about $2.9 million.) Unlike bonds and sinking fund millages, funds from the Enhancement Millage can be used for operational funds.
 
The Enhancement Millage has funded the following items:
  • the school resource officer
  • additional staff to address classroom sizes
  • instruments for the music programs
  • updated copier fleet
  • textbooks and classroom equipment
  • furniture
  • software
 
How much will the proposal cost homeowners?
 
It is not a tax increase. The millage would be renewed at its current rate and will continue to cost the average Wayne County homeowner less than $8 per month (per $100,000 home value), with 100% of funds going to Wayne County public schools and public school academies so they can keep schools safe, and improve programs and services for students.
 
Why is this renewal important?
 
Strong schools help make Wayne County a great place to live, raise a family, work or launch a business.
Strengthening our schools supports our future workforce, which will help attract new families, businesses and talent to Wayne County.
