From the GPS Supe: Understanding the non homestead millage
In Grant, every four years, our community is asked to renew our Operating Millage. This is completely different from the millage that Grant Public Schools asked for in May, this is something all school districts in Michigan ask for from time to time, in Grant it is every 4 years.
The proposal on the ballot August 2nd will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate, not to exceed 18 mills on all property, except primary residence (your home) and other property exempted by law. This is required for our school district to receive its revenue per pupil foundation allowance and renews this millage that was last approved in 2018.
Just for clarification:
-This is a renewal of our operating millage and not a new millage.
-Grant Public Schools can only collect up to 18 mills.
-This operating millage supports our students, families, community, and school system.
Thank you for your continued support of Grant Public Schools and our students and thank you for taking the time to get out and vote.
