Clinton Community Schools seek non-homestead millage Renewal on Tuesday’s ballot

CLINTON – Clinton Community Schools is seeking annual renewal of the 18 mill, non-homestead tax, which will appear on the Tuesday, May 6 ballot. The estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2014 is approximately $936,073.19.The term non-homestead represents industrial, commercial and some agricultural property and “second homes” in the Clinton School District. It does not include a family’s main residence.Superintendent Sean McNatt wants Clinton residents to understand the non-homestead tax will not increase residential taxes. This tax is on non-homestead property and does not apply to any main place of residence.Although Michigan schools no longer received funding through property taxes, they are allowed to raise funding through the non-homestead tax.Funding for school districts changed significantly in 1993/94 when the Michigan voters passed Proposal A. Under Proposal A, the State pays the majority of the cost for school district operation, but to receive full funding, schools must levy 18 mills on non-homestead property in their district.Anyone with questions about the millage renewal can contact McNatt at 456.6501.
