March 2020 Sinking Fund Replacement Millage

On March 10, 2020, Northville Public Schools voters will be asked to consider replacing our current Sinking Fund millage with a new Sinking Fund millage that will extend the current .9519-mill levy from 2021 to 2025 and provide for broader uses of the proceeds, including instructional technology and security equipment. The current levy expires on Dec. 31, 2020. The .9519-mill five-year request is a REPLACEMENT of the existing Sinking Fund millage and would NOT result in an increase over the current millage rate.
 
If supported, the Sinking Fund millage will continue to provide approximately $3 million each year to fund building and site repairs, along with instructional technology and safety and security upgrades. Priority projects for the next five-year period fall into the categories of Instructional Technology & Security, Energy & Operational Efficiency, and Health & Safety.  
 
The 0.9519 mill Sinking Fund millage replacement, if approved:
  • Helps preserve General Fund dollars to accomplish the District’s core mission of instruction and student learning
  • Enables students to learn and grow in a safe, secure and healthy environment
  • Protects the community’s investment in the School District’s buildings and facilities
  • Maintains appropriate learning facilities that enable the District (and the community) to keep and attract residents
  • Keeps Northville’s taxpayer dollars in Northville!
