Northville Township to Propose Millage Vote In August
Millage funds Public Safety, Parks, Recreation, Youth & Senior Services

NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich., April 21, 2020 – The existing Northville Township millage expires at the end of this year and our residents will be asked to vote August 4, 2020 on a new millage to fund a continuation of current services: Police, EMS, Fire, Parks, Recreation, Senior & Youth Services along with administration.

After several months of analysis, the Board determined that the existing level of services could be maintained by renewing the existing millage with a slight increase of 1/2 mill, of which approximately 90% is needed to fund Public Safety.

Input from our residents has suggested that they wish to maintain the same levels of Police, Fire and EMS services currently provided by Public Safety. At the April 16, 2020 Board meeting, the Trustees recommended a proposal for a millage renewal with an additional 1/2 mill for a period of 6 years (2021-2026).

What is the tax impact of this millage proposal?

A house with a market value of $400,000 will see an increase of approximately $100 per year. This increase will be offset by a decrease of approximately ½ mill in the separate millage for the 2009 Seven Mile Road property purchase. As a result, the Township’s total millage will not increase.

Further information materials will follow for residents so they can decide how to vote in August.
